The Elephant in the Room

As we come close to the finish line, it’s time to discuss what we put together, the structure, the why, the how and the reason we formed this business in the first place.  Which is to make All of us, everyone who has patiently rated their position in this route race, along with the late comers who wish that they had invested earlier, before the buy in exploded, a lot of $$$$$.

And in order to make all of us a lot of money it’s imperative that I alone am privy to this daily output of information because I am the one who will be making our bets.

I say this as straight forward and candid as I possibly can because everyone wants to know the programs daily selections so they can make their own wagers and though I completely understand and admit that I would wish for the same, if I were to let this happen we would fail.

And Ed and I didn’t give our life, his unmatched knowledge and experience to this venture, nor did each of you invest for one person to profit all. It’s that simple.

Our structure is designed to protect everyone who invested, not one. And I am so confident in our success that I not only personally put forth all my money in order to keep this venture rolling, I am willing to double the amount of any capital invested now through the next few weeks in order to have a large enough betting pool to get us to profitable quick.

Because I understand that what we have would greatly enhance everyone’s personal betting decisions I want to provide something.  I realize at this moment, prior to when all the validations are in that the Potential Bet list has been less than stellar and when I have chosen to bet for us I haven’t been able to confidently use the Potential Bet list to make our wagers though I am aware that this will change in a few short weeks so I plan to continue to daily post these.

And since most everyone said they enjoyed a great deal of wins from the full card reports we posted for Del Mar and Saratoga, once we’re rolling, I plan to randomly post a full card from one of the tracks running each day.

When we cross the finish line our top rated selections will be winning on average 70% of the time so I plan to bet and hit a lot of multiple race wagers; Pick 3s, 4s, 5s and 6s, and quite a few daily doubles.

Our program was purposely built to be used by one person, and all features included are ones to greatly benefit in my making our decisions. One that I’ll rely on most enables the race day changes throughout the day to include the; scratches, surface, surface changes and conditions as well as change in jockey. And with these changes the finishing positions and ratings can change too. As an example if the race is taken off the turf, there normally would be a lot of scratches and the horses that remain will have a different rating than they would have, had the race remained on the turf. Another example would be the race remains on the turf but the turf surface today comes up yielding. This would change the ratings as some pedigree is bred to like a yielding turf while others only perform well on firm. Same applies for dirt. Not all horses are bred to like the slop and not all trainers perform well on a change of surface.

The program is not designed to publish reports other than summaries which is the reason why we are unable to post anything other than the top rated horse.

In closing today’s post I’d like to share something that happened around two weeks ago because by doing so I believe you will see what we actually have.  I was offered several million dollars for the betting program in its completed form. Though I was not surprised by the offer because Ed and I realized what we were building, I was more taken back that this person knew who I was and what we have. Turns out this was one of the casinos VIPs they told me about and though I did give them the OK to open the door to discussions, it was not about this. I turned him down of course as selling our betting program is something I will not do. Ed and I agreed that if we were ever fortunate enough to bring this venture to fruition that we must protect this at all costs; For all the shareholders that got us here and to ensure that no one investor could be able to override all.

I sincerely hope that you can appreciate the reason for the decisions I make.

We’re closing in and truly can not wait till we roll………..

Proposition and an Update

Evening everyone,

We are almost there, literally and this alone feels extremely good to say.

Our venture will be rolling within the next few weeks. This is the reason I chose to wait until this time before reaching outside for additional investments from persons who have expressed interest for some time for 4 of our 8 and 1/2 remaining shares .

Presently I ‘m engrossed in discussions. Each interested party understands that these 4 shares are being offered for $100K per share, the amount required to fund our betting account ($200K) and to pay our developers their balance due. Since none of these potential investors have been privy to the mechanics of our venture to date there will be a lot of back and forth in order for them to reach an understanding of what we have and in lieu of this their decision to participate can take several months.

In the meantime we are well poised to roll within the next two weeks. To date we’ve paid the developers half of what we owe and they granted me credit so to speak on the balance of $165K at the request of my equi-stats partner who understands what we’re sitting on and because of their trust in him and us, they have been willing to wait.

However waiting for such a sum does not pay their bills so in order to get our betting program to the level where we can consistently win, I’ve shelled out quite a bit of my own money this month along with giving the developers 20K from the money earned from the hits that we had last month. By paying this we have everyone, the developers and the mathematician working overtime. In their most recent update they said there is quite a bit of tweaking to do as they progress and when asked for a realistic estimate as to when this will be ready they stated that we are 2 weeks away from crossing the finish line.

Because I am confident in our success, and in order to keep things moving forward I personally invested most all the money I have. Though confident we will meet the required investments to make our venture fly from these outside investors this process can still take up to 2 months for us to obtain the funds so in lieu of this and the fact that we’ll be ready to roll within the next few weeks, I have decided to make the following offer to all current investors for the sole purpose of raising funds now in order for me to be able to make bets for us as soon as the programs ready.

And because I believe in our success I will guarantee in writing that Zen will double any investment made now within 6 months of going live, meaning the 6 month count begins as soon as the awaited algorithms and validations are in which will begin the day test bets end.

Because such investments would afford us to start our venture sooner than 2 months from now, the investment would have to be by cash or check (no credit cards) and in hand and clearing the bank within the next four weeks. No extensions offered, meaning two months from now this offer is no offer anymore and presented now for the sole purpose of raising money to make our bets.

In other words should you invest $1,000 , Zen would guarantee in writing $2,000 back within 6 months of going live. Invest $5,000 and Zen will guarantee $10K back. Invest $25 and Zen will guarantee $50K back and so on.

To be clear, this investment is not for obtaining shares and purely for working capital so I can make our bets. It is very possible that raising capital this way now will suffice and we won’t even have to open any of the remaining shares because with enough money in hand we can win enough to roll….

The offer to double this investment is exclusive to current shareholders. Would appreciate anyone with interest letting me know via email that you decide to participate.

Where we are Now

Now that I have assistance I am free to accomplish the rest of the things that remain to be done in order to get our venture rolling………. full speed ahead, out of test bets, and making money for us all.

My First order of business is to raise the money for our betting pool through the 8 and 1/2 investment shares that I’ve purposely held back. We require a betting bank of $200K, plus $30 to $40K to cover for the next two months operating expense And $165K to pay the long time money due the developers of which I’ve managed to keep to the $165K existing balance due them prior to August by using the big money we won from the Superfecta, Pick 5 and Pick 6 wins to take care of August’s $15+K operating expense.

Though in itself a great accomplishment, especially by being able to pay a full months worth of bills from our first few weeks out, doing so has put me back into the position of using my own money for our test bets and quite frankly this is Not where I want us to be. So now that I have competent, reliable and able assistance I began negotiations towards accomplishing this.

From the beginning our venture took vision, Ed’s vision and an understanding of what we were building and a knowing that once here that we’d have potential investors getting in touch with us instead of the other way around. And I’m happy to share that this is so and even began before we were this far along.

At present I am in discussions with several potential investors, all of which are financial Whales, and I expect this may take a few months to unfold as we continue to integrate the mathematicians validations and remain in test bet mode and at this time I am not exact on the amount number I am going to open these investments shares for. However my goal is to raise this money through opening 4 out of the 8 and 1/2 left, leaving us a reserve.

Even though I am confident this will happen, of the upmost importance factors to me is that any new investors that I let in, must fit. We’re sitting on a rocket ship that is launching into the limitless sky that in just a few short weeks will have all of us in awe and anyone who has the option to enter now, must be of the same mold. To date we have the good fortune of 30+ shareholders that share and have shared the same vision, the same positive outlook all possessed with good energy And this Is what got us here, to this point, And any new investor should be the same.

I’ll close with some news about our program.
We’re loading this up as we speak, already implemented race day changes including change of surface and surface condition and jockey switches and over the next few days and into next week we will start to see the wins pop which will save an enormous amount of time from what it currently takes to cull through the races for a potential bet.

And since the successful formula for the bulk of our bets is they should be 70 to 75% bet on win, place and/or show, I plan to wait till the ratings are popping rather than where they are now, trying to figure out who is going to win from the top 3 and instead select sporadic exotic wagers like superfectas, and exactas like I initially successfully did at first with the test bets. Though it is through test bets that I came to realize this because at best it was break even with several more days a loss.

If any of the exotic wagers we bet hit big I will certainly let you know 🙂

PICK 6

Afternoon. As mentioned I’m in the process of getting my assistance set so I am able to devote my full attention into what we have so when I have bet it’s mostly been through culling each card and test betting win, place and show because these will be 70 to 75% of our wagers. Nothing stellar to report just yet. Been holding our own and plan to wait till additional algorithms are in so I’m not having to choose so much between the top 3 program selections.
Today I’ve taken a stab at a few exotics and one of these being a Pick 6 at Gulfstream. Here’s what we have:

GP RACE 7:
$0.20 PK6 on 1,3,7/4,5,7,10/8/1,3-6,8,9/3,6,8,11/1,4,5 $201.60

Where We Are and …….

To date I’ve been pretty much running our entire venture alone which is the precise reason for the space between updates. However, now that we’ve arrived at this juncture where I am actually making our test bets, it’s imperative for me to have time to delve into what we built and continue to refine. So at present I am taking the necessary steps to ensure this is accomplished and to do so requires me to temporarily switch gears. Though I plan to continue to test bet Thursday through Sunday.

Recently we’ve had the good fortune to enlist the help of two very qualified assistants; one whose primary role is to maintain our daily updates and the other is a personal assistant to me who will aid in keeping all shareholders informed and in addition will take care of other necessaries in order for me to be able to explore this rocket ship that we built.

And what do we have now and what can we expect?
Well we have enough algorithms to identify potential bets, with additional ones being added to our arsenal weekly which will continue for some time, so at present, and until the bulk of these mathematical validations are incorporated in, the task to identify potential plays continues to be a laborious.

Since test betting involves regular feedback to the developers and our mathematician in order for them to make adjustments and tweak, I find this manageable by targeting specific tracks that I personally prefer to bet and being able to bet them regularly will allow me to gauge the amount of time we’ll be in test mode. This will happen once my assistants are regularly handling all the other tasks. My estimate is this will take about two weeks for things to run smooth and then I will be giving my full attention to our test bets.

In other words you won’t be hearing much from me until my assistants are set and in full motion unless of course we have another sizeable hit. We’re not doing too bad so far 🙂

A Special Tribute to Ed

Russell Staggs, a good friend, one of our shareholders, and a long time equistats partner recently became a thoroughbred owner and when he designed his silks said he would like to add this special tribute to Ed on his silks sleeves. I just had to share this great gesture with You.

So Where are we now and What Happens Next?

Now that we’ve reached this point in our endeavor we can expect a continuance of starts and stops in order to refine the program outputs. Not that we’ll notice much interruption, probably only an occasional delay in posting the daily potential bets, however, these steps are necessary. They will be tweaking and validating by viewing the previous days results as well as from the feedback I give them on our test bets towards improving accuracy and having a finished product that we can confidently wager from.

I’m including a video of our program and the previous days results for what our program calls the “Standouts” that we publish under our Potential Bets – all list. Since there is no sound, note that the top part of the program lists 12 potential bets on the list and as you’ll see from this screen shot that below is the list of how the program projected the horses would run each race and to the left the word Pos stands for finishing position. Right now we’re averaging 50% wins from the top 3 program selections for all races and in order to show you this, I will uncheck the Standouts link so you’ll see each race at all racetracks running yesterday. And when I tallied yesterday’s results there were 119 total races where only 48 did not have the winner selected in the top three which means 60% of the races had the winner selected in the top 3.

In a sense I am sort of opening up a can of worms by sharing this because there is so much more to share that I will cover later, like why there may be more runners listed on this list than we posted however since it’s important to me that you follow along with our progress I want to show this to you now. Only ask everyone to hold back any questions until I’ve had the chance to fully update.

In addition, the mathematician, Nick, who I am happy to say is now one of us (a shareholder) and our head developer (who is my partner in equi-stats and also a shareholder) are tweaking and validating, and tweaking and validating the integration of Ed’s algorithms towards additional accuracy. When this reaches their pinnacle, they will go to work on integrating the mathematicians first group of validations and at yesterday’s meeting was informed should be in place in two weeks. From here we’ll notice a big, big change in the numbers, rating wise and accuracy though this integration will also require necessary tweaking and validating.

Not all algorithms will debut in this version. To explain what this actually means is we could only estimate the process of the massive undertaking we chose to initiate, the size of the database, and all it’s components as well as all the data points we’re asking to include and these can only be validated as the clean data is made ready. So what they have chosen to do is tackle the essential base first which is Ed’s brain and the 4 race form cycle that is track specific, class specific, distance specific and surface specific. The results of 50% winners from the top three selections is better than anyone projected and this was right out of the gate, prior to any tweaking.

Though I can confidently bet with what is already in place, it still requires a lot of looking through things on my end, meaning hours of handicapping, and until the mathematicians algorithms are in, I’m finding the bulk of our wagers from the full race card list as opposed to from the Potential Bet All list though those are also hitting at a 50% win rate from the top three and one of the main reasons I’m fully aware that at this point can not be too much higher is because we are awaiting surface and surface condition to be applied. Horses do not run the same on a muddy track verses fast and the same applies to a good turf verses firm however these will be in over the next few weeks.

Going to stop here so I can post this update. At present I am not betting every day though I am when Del Mar is running because they offer Parlay bets through the Casino. This is something Ed wanted most of all and we didn’t know if this would be possible. Another topic that I plan to delve into a little later however for now this is the only track I can place these wagers on. Since I’m wearing a lot of hats right now and the development of our program is essential to our progression I’m going to resume these updates early next week.

Also on board is my new assistant who possess presentation skills like no other so you’ll get to see a lot of good over the next few weeks as we let em roll………….

Thank You!!!

As we embark upon the beginning of our wonderful venture that is certain to change our lives, I want you to know from my heart and my love Ed’s heart that we know none of this would have been possible without You. Each of You and your years of support and belief in us and what we have put together is literally what has kept me moving onward.

I’m in the process of putting together an additional update. There is much to share, where we are now and truly how things will unfold. The progress continues daily and testing and checking things as of late is the reason for most of the update delays though plan to have the next one posted for you some time tomorrow. Stay tuned 🙂
