Going to horse racing events on Sunday used to be something that only the elite class of society was able to do. It used to be an activity where men would go with their male friends, their wives and sometimes their business associates to enjoy an afternoon of horse racing.

He likes to think that he was spared due to a technical problem in the machine gun that was firing at him.

As for Nadal, this upcoming Memorial Day, his thoughts are “a sense of loss for the lives that could have been and pain at the loss of my soldiers.”

Nadal, along with his communications sergeant, then decided to retrieve the lieutenant’s body amid the heat of battle, only to find another wounded soldier alongside the officer. “They are your friends, your buddies. North Vietnamese deaths totaled 834 and Nadal received a Silver Star for his efforts in the battle.

Shortly after his company dropped into the 100-degree temperatures of the central highlands, Nadal recalls the Army capturing a prisoner, who said his unit – which was there to “kill Americans” – was taking up residence in the nearby Chu Pong Mountain.

“Col. Moore realized for us it would be a battle of survival,” Nadal said, noting that the Americans’ forces were heavily outnumbered at the time and having to shift their focus to protect LZ X-Ray, the landing site in the jungle.

“I always felt my duty was to move to the sound of the guns,” he said.

Ramon “Tony” Nadal can forget a lot of things in his life, but even the passage of half a century has not dulled the memory of three scorching days in the jungles of Southeast Asia during one of the most significant battles of the Vietnam War.

- Retired Col. aircraft, Nadal and his company were able to rescue the isolated platoon — but not without heavy losses. Nadal first recovered the lieutenant’s body, then went back a second time — under enemy fire and grenade blasts — to save the other soldier.

“I had told my soldiers we were not going to leave anyone behind”

On Nov. At least 79 men died as the Americans desperately fought their way out of the jungle in what would become known as the Battle of LZ X-Ray, one of the first major clashes in a war that would drag on into the next decade.

“I also think about the absurdity of war,” he told “There has to be a better way.”

After getting in touch with Joe Galloway, the author of “We Were Soldiers Once… what you are left with is anguish. I have found help — and the help is that the soldiers that fought at LZ X-Ray have been gathering together for the last 22 years and we have annual reunions. Hal Moore to inspect a mountain in Vietnam’s Ia Drang Valley for enemy troops who had attacked a military base weeks earlier.

Less than an hour later, heavy fighting broke out between the two sides. Check your weapons and fix bayonets. Ramon ‘Tony’ Nadal. I then climbed out of the creek bed and said, ‘follow me.'”

Amid the fighting, a platoon also became isolated from the rest of the American forces, and Moore instructed Nadal to lead his tired troops to rescue them.

Cooney said during production of the film he showed Nadal the scenes of LZ X-Ray, and at one point, Nadal said “oh that’s me, that’s me right there.”

The AARP video, titled, “The Battle I’ll Never Forget,” features rarely seen footage of LZ X-Ray, including scenes of Nadal himself.

“I had told my soldiers ‘we are not going to leave anyone behind’,” Nadal said.

“He was so pleased to see that it was film of him,” Cooney told “And it really brought him back to that moment in time. Moore.”

Producer TJ Cooney told that the search for actual battle footage was arduous as text descriptions of videos in Washington, D.C.’s National Archive initially were mislabeled.

With the assistance of white phosphorous smoke that was shot at enemy positions from U.S. Army colonel in a new short film released by AARP Studios for Memorial Day.

A mission to hunt down North Vietnamese troops who had attacked a military base in their area turned into a fight for survival as Nadal and his fellow soldiers quickly found themselves outnumbered 2,400 to 192. His company lost 15 men in the fighting at LZ X-Ray and the battalion had lost 79 men overall. And Young” — which was later adapted into a movie starring Mel Gibson — Cooney said he was mailed Galloway’s copy of video from the battle and was able to sync it up to footage from the Archives.

Cooney said the AARP, which featured Nadal’s heroics in a magazine article, decided to make a film after seeing YouTube videos of him speaking online.

In the charge to rescue the isolated troops, Nadal said three of his friends were gunned down to the left and right of him – but he was unscathed.

“I feel the loss of all my soldiers,” Nadal said. We have gotten very close.”

“We saw the passion and he had for his soldiers and thought he did a really good job articulating that passion he had,” Cooney said.

Nadal, a Georgia native and West Point graduate, says in the film that as a young soldier he eagerly jumped at the opportunity to volunteer in the Army’s Special Forces units, which were shipping out to Laos in the early 1960s.

“I was ready to give my life for my soldiers,” said the retired U.S. At one point in the first day of the battle, Nadal recalls running into a platoon sergeant lying in the grass, who said his leader was dead.

“We have to go bring back a platoon from B company,” Nadal told in an email, recalling the pep talk he gave to rally his troops. It was really great to have actual footage of Tony Nadal and Col. 14, 1965, Nadal, then acting as a rifle company commander for the Army’s 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry unit, was instructed by Lt. B Company will be with us. “When you get through all the bravado… Gen

Vitek said the model once again raises the question, “Is it unfair to make an individual who is 40 and who has been trying to conceive wait for 6 months before declaring her infertile?”

The study did not find substantial differences in women’s chances of conceiving between the ages of 25 and 30, but the odds did drop off for women over 35 years old.

But fertility experts say the formula confirms what we’ve already known about conception, rather than changing current advice for couples with fertility challenges.

“Our study makes use of such evidence, and makes what we consider to be reasonable assumptions, which build on a body of previous work,” he added.. “Couples are generally advised to try and conceive for 12 cycles or one year before they go to a doctor.

For example, women who are 25 and have been trying to get pregnant for three months have an 18 percent chance of getting pregnant in their next menstrual cycle. James Grifo, director of the New York University Fertility Center, said the new data confirm that younger patients should generally wait a year before seeking fertility treatment, which carries with it the risk of twins or higher order multiples. If you’re over 35, and you haven’t conceived in 6 cycles, then you should be evaluated.”

“There is a lot of very good evidence that couples who have been trying longer for a baby without success have less chance of getting pregnant in the next cycle, and that older women have a lower probability of getting pregant than younger women,” Peter Sozou, a researcher with the London School of Economics who worked on the formula and its accompanying study, told The Huffington Post. Researchers in the UK have attempted to bring some clarity issue by developing a computer model that predicts women’s chances of becoming pregnant in any given menstrual cycle according to their age and how long they’ve been trying to conceive. However, he agreed with Vitek that women in their mid-30s should consider treatment at 6 months, and that women over 40 should consider it even sooner.

One of the biggest challenges for women trying to get pregnant is determining if and when they should keep trying to conceive on their own, and when it is time to seek medical help. “It’s in the nature of probabilities that we can’t say for certain when, or even if, pregnancy will occur in a particular couple.”

Fertility experts often estimate that one-third of fertility problems are caused by women’s reproductive issues, such as ovulation problems, while one-third can be attributed to male factors, such as low sperm quality or quantity; and one-third are a combination of problems from both partners or are unexplained.

Vitek said the model does provide strong evidence that women who are over 40 and have been trying to get pregnant might want to think about going to their doctor even sooner, say after just three cycles.

Dr. In that case, however, patients can’t necessarily rely on insurance to help cover treatment. You can look at charts and graphs until the cows come home, but you can’t predict the future.”

But Grifo cautioned that mathematical models are useful for health care providers and “policy wonks,” not for individual women trying to better understand their odds of getting pregnant. They do not take into account essential individual factors, such as a woman’s ovarian supply and the sperm quality of her partner.

“I think that [the model] validated our current standard,” said Dr. Of the 15 states in the U.S.

One focus of the paper, published in the online journal PLoS ONE, is how maternal age affects the chances that a couple having unprotected sex, but not necessarily timing intercourse according to peak ovulation, will get pregnant in the next month.

“There’s only one test of fertility,” Grifo said, “and that’s trying to get pregnant. After one year of trying, 25-year-old women have a 10 percent chance of getting pregnant in their next cycle; 40-year-old women have a 3 percent shot.

“All we can reasonably hope to do is give probabilities, based on the best science available,” said Sozou, the study’s author. By contrast, women who are 40 and have been trying for three months have only a 7 percent chance. that provide some coverage for fertility treatments, most require couples try for at least a year on their own before coverage kicks in. Wendy Vitek, director of the fertility preservation program with the University of Rochester’s Strong Fertility Center, who did not work on the study

Unlike human athletes, horses have no say in what’s injected into them for the purpose of glory and human profit. Some are seriously injured or killed in transit. You can help by actively supporting the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, bipartisan legislation that would end the export of American horses for slaughter abroad, once and for all.

Behind these celebrations is a sad truth: thousands of equines become homeless each year through no fault of their own, and many end up at livestock auctions where they’re purchased for slaughter overseas. Learn more about the ASPCA’s mission and programs at

2014-04-25-horse.jpgNearly 150 years ago, ASPCA founder Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for horse mistreatment on April 26, 1866. Soring is when trainers use purposefully painful methods, including filing hooves down to the nerve and inserting sharp objects into the hooves, to force horses to exaggerate their gait with high strides. horses for human consumption, and it’s no wonder. Last year, more than 144,000 American horses were sent to cruel deaths by foreign industries that produce unsafe food for consumers. Again, there’s good legislation waiting in the wings; all it needs is strong public support. Their ideas include parading rescued horses down a local main street, having a community “horse wash,” running a horse-themed carnival, and hosting a rally on the steps of a state capitol. While the practice is effectively banned in the United States, there’s still more we can do to permanently ensure no horses are slaughtered here, or sent overseas for slaughter.

Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of the slaughter of U.S. While the European Union, the Middle East and Japan all ban the use of drugs for horses on race days, the United States has no uniform rules on the practice.

This is why ending horse slaughter has been one of our strongest recent campaigns. The slaughter process is also inherently cruel, as horses are difficult to stun properly and may be repeatedly injured or stabbed during the procedure.

Horses have such a rich tradition of helping humans work, explore, play, and be simply less alone on the journey. Horse welfare advocates know that lax drug rules are partly responsible, and have called for a ban on drug use for horses on race day, including a permanent ban for repeat offenders. Some contests actually reward this tragic training with medals and ribbons. They’ve been so strong for us. The grants were primarily awarded as part of the ASPCA Equine Fund, which provides life-saving resources — including financial help, in-person and online training, and sharing of best practices — to non-profit equine welfare organizations in America. You may have seen this at exhibitions and contests, but that high step is actually the horse’s flinching attempt to avoid pain. The bill would also create “one and done” and “three strikes, you’re out” penalties for strong enforcement. More than 80 groups in 32 states are participating — probably some near you. Check here to learn how you can help.

Learn what else you can do to help, including direct donations to the Equine Fund, visiting our Advocacy Center, or just by learning more, and sharing what you discover.


Our commitment to horses is steadfast, and takes more forms than words alone. Learn how you can help protect racehorses by supporting this legislation.

See hidden-camera footage of the practice in this ABC Nightline report, and learn how you can support the PAST (Prevent All Soring Tactics) Act, which would require horse show organizers to, among other things, prohibit the use of certain devices that intensify the pain caused by soring.

Matthew Bershadker is President & CEO of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act would prohibit the use of performance-enhancing drugs in horse racing and improve the safety and integrity of the sport. Instead, they’re often transported without food, water, or rest in dangerously overcrowded trailers. These are typically young and healthy animals that could go on to live productive lives. The Jockey Club, the organization that maintains the breed registry for all thoroughbred horses in North America, released a study which determined that racehorses in the United States die at a rate twice that of any other country. Isn’t it time we be strong for them?

This commitment is the driving force behind Help a Horse Day, our nationwide contest on April 26 awarding five $10,000 grants to equine rescues and sanctuaries that succeed in saving lives and raising awareness about at-risk horses. However you feel about the sport, there’s no denying that the use of performance-enhancing drugs is unacceptable.

Unscrupulous trainers take full advantage of America’s weak legal protections for horses, routinely and repeatedly violating medication rules.

Horse soring — nothing short of the deliberate infliction of pain — is another reprehensible practice that requires our immediate attention and action. Protecting horses has been a core part of our mission ever since, but we also rely on a strong public voice — people playing direct roles in their communities and through government to save these majestic, loving animals from cruelty and neglect.

2014-04-25-horse2.jpgFinally, there’s the equine event we’re all familiar with — horseracing. Last year, the ASPCA awarded $1.4 million in grants to support equine rescues and sanctuaries in 43 states and the District of Columbia

I bought horses from the big

guys 90% of the time, not the little guys. So the taxpayer would take the hit. On three

occasions Dillon happily informed the court that Penn National gave him

a letter telling him what a good job he was doing. Again, that’s seven

breakdowns at Penn National with 820 starts, and one out of 1,400 starts

at other tracks.

Penn National doesn’t want you to pay attention to the horses; they want

you in the casino. Do you think the trainers would

tell the owners that they lost their $40,000 claiming horse for $20,000

because they were cashing a bet offshore or would they say that Gill

made it a $40,000 horse because he was cheating? What do you think?

So how did I get kicked out of Penn National? I just had 2,247 horse

races without a single bad test. They have never come to my defense

because they are made up of horse owners and trainers that do not want

me in the industry because I am cutting up their pie. To put this in perspective, if you combined all

of the race tracks across the country you might not have fourteen fatal

breakdowns collectively during a two week period. The barns are a

disaster and the track is dangerous, but the casino is just wonderful!

You tell me where Penn National is spending their money. In fact in 2008, just one year before, it had fourteen fatal

breakdowns in two weeks.

In fact they did not even investigate before or after ejecting me or

Adamo, not one of them.

I guess miracles can happen.

I got into Penn National when John Krulock (agent for jockeys Thomas

Clifton and Willie Otero) offered me 49 stalls if I rode his Jockeys

first call. They had nothing else. This was more money than next the top 15 owners at

Penn National combined. All my horses were sold. I knew at that moment that since

Krulock got me the stalls at Penn National that he could take them away.

Let’s move on to the National Horsemen’s Benevolence & Protective

Association (HBPA). This is the exact

accusation I had made when I fired him. I wasn’t doing

anything special.

Every time I see my name it is followed by the word, controversial. I was able to accomplish my goals because I believed they were

possible. I also quickly learned that it is possible for people to be

totally corrupt.

I really tried to make a difference. They had the State of Pennsylvania do their dirty work and we

learned in last week’s trial that Commission’s lawyers warned them that

I could sue the Commission. He must have

forgotten about an email he sent on January 24, 2010, just before my

ejection, stating that my trainers, Adamo and Delahoussaye had 3 and 4

breakdowns respectively for the year. In fact Delahoussaye

still trained and he had his other owners buy my horses that wound up

back in the same stalls that they were in when I owned them a day

before. So that is how they came at me.

So Krulock had the two top racing outfits in Penn National using his

jockeys. As reported in the Thoroughbred Times, “It

was a surprise visit, and I found nothing wrong in the facility,” said

Gail Emerson, a former trainer. Krulock said that he could not do that because

Dana was riding first call for my biggest competitor, Stephanie Beattie.

You would be interested to know how little these Commissioners know

about horse racing. Sometimes the thing that separates the

haves and the have-nots is opportunity. I have now

just introduced you to all the players.

You may remember reading Otero saying my horses were dangerous. Therefore, I think this qualifies me to speak about the


In fact in a federal trial held last week, Michael Dillon, former Acting

Executive Secretary of the Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission said

under oath that he spoke with three jockeys about their concerns, one

was Clifton and he just could not remember the other two. Since that wasn’t possible, Krulock turned to what he

could control…the jockeys. Every year the track

has had major issues with breakdowns. They want you in the Casino at


Christopher McErlean is the Vice President of Gaming at Penn National. For all those

concerned, you have taken your best shot at me and I am still standing. Dillon also declared our innocence. I had a passion and a love for this industry. I said that I would, but that I would not use Clifton as I

felt he was an inferior jockey. More money than any owner made at any one

race track that year. Instead what I got was an anonymous

phone call to the Large Animal Protection Society.

I’m no longer in horse racing so I have no motive to share my story

other than the truth.

Penn National knew that I had complained multiple times about the racing

surface. They sent Gail

Emerson to my farm. I’m

sure they were the jockeys, Krulock’s jockeys, which was the reason for

Dillon’s sudden loss of memory.

I will finish by telling you that in the purest sense I am a competitor,

I find no victory in cheating. I noticed how one Commissioner after another on the stand

appeared more hesitant, guarded and confused than the one before.

The Commission and Dillon listed three separate complaints: 1) Penn

National, 2) Jockeys and 3) the HBPA. She was accused of shock waving horses by her

foreman/boyfriend and her grooms, but wrote a letter, representing horse

ownership, to the Commissioner saying I was bad for racing.

Not convinced yet? If you think Penn National cares about jockeys and

horses, why are they racing at 12:00 midnight in the middle of January

instead of 12:00 noon? Do you think it is colder at midnight than at

noon? Do you think it is more likely to have a frozen track in the

middle of January? Isn’t it possible it is about making money? Otherwise

they would be racing during the day. To my knowledge this was the only race track in the country where

all horses didn’t get checked by a veterinarian before each race.

My dream was always to win the Kentucky Derby; instead this has been my

living nightmare. I made it possible for the

trainer to make money and the owners to make money, rather than have the

trainer survive by cheating the owner. They then said in last week’s trial that they never accused me of

having sore horses. Then it became very clear. I was trying to create a path to

operating a successful business in the horse racing industry that I

loved so that other owners could do the same. I claimed horses for $20,000 and won for $40,000. What if

I told you he has just given a sworn deposition, under oath, that they

were never were dangerous? What jockey would know better if my horses

were sound than the jockey that was riding them all? How could any other

jockeys say anything if they didn’t ride them? Also, what if Otero and

Jockey Clinton Potts just said under oath that they did not give anyone

express permission to use their names on the jockey petition?

Now I am going to get really insidious. When he could not give me Dana Whitney, I fired him as an agent

and the jockeys he represents. My understanding

is that they do vet check now, why didn’t they then? I offered to have

the state vet at Penn National check all my horses on the grounds and at

my farm, Penn National declined. When you look at it, you see nothing but

locals. They still had major issues two

months after I left. I claimed horses from people

that were cheating and winning races unfairly to defraud the betting

public. It is journalism, like

the recent New York Times article and a former ESPN interview,

that have made it difficult to stay in business and impossible for me to

come back by painting me as “The Most Hated Man in Racing” where I might

have been the most honest.

The Commission’s own investigators recognized the fact that the horses

were back running at Penn National and what I was saying was actually

true. Even when the

subject was about life and limb, he forgot. They do not like cutting up their share of the pie. Want proof? Simply walk inside of the casino and then

walk out back to the stables where the horses live. Penn National operates

under a license, as I do. No

offense to The Blood-Horse magazine, but it is not ALL that these

commissioners should know.

I came into horse racing hiring the little guy and giving them an

opportunity to prove themselves. There must have

been some magical wand that was waived to make them all instantly sound. By now it was a moot point. “The slippery slope is if the measurement or action taken is

going to be on when this occurs, as it may also involve others who

people feel are not an issue.” McErlean wrote this in his email, a copy

of which I have in my possession.

It was my intent to have stayed in Horse Racing the rest of my life,

what better job to have than one that you love. This was a horse that raced on the grass for

the first time, slipped and clipped heals. The vast majority went back to Penn National. I made $3.1

million dollars there in 2009. They raced a total of 820 times

during the year. So why would they want me out?

. Only the Commission could take their

license away. Krulock then gave me Willie Otero to

ride all my horses and then hired Dana Whitney. I was in horse racing for 33 years and have been told

that I have had more starts and won more races than any horse owner in

history. It is also ironic that I was still able to race at Philadelphia

Park, but not at Penn National, even though both are governed by the

same Pennsylvania commission. I would not be

bought and I would not be intimidated, that is a dangerous combination

in horse racing.

I spent $51 million dollars in horse racing, why would I need to cheat?

If someone had a better horse in the race, I would buy it. It seems they rely heavily on reading The

Blood-Horse magazine. I watched them go up on the

witness stand, one after another saying that I had done nothing wrong. Weeks later, Otero was suspended from

racing for making no effort for a horse to win. But they blamed me, not the track.

So, if you had a couple of Commissioners that you could manipulate, I

would say it was a hell of an insurance policy and defense Attorney

Augusto was the puppet master who protects the tracks and dials in the

Commissioners. This is the same organization that I have paid more

money into than any other person. The president of

HBPA at Penn National at the time was Stephanie Beattie, my biggest

competitor. Penn National has me thrown out;

they knew they did not have a reason so they gave it to the Commission. They could possibly lose that license if they

were operating a dangerous track. Those that wanted me out would have

given their eyeballs to have come up with a bad test to make it easy to

get rid of me. Sore at Penn, sound at Philly?

Penn National continues to be scrutinized for their unsafe track


He has commented publicly about my horses breaking down. He seemed to be very

proud of that letter.

Those same complaining owners bought them, the same complaining trainers

trained them and the same complaining jockeys rode them. Typically, trainers survive by

finding a new owner before the old owner goes broke.

Penn National Race Track in Grantville, Pennsylvania is, like other race

tracks, a closed community. Tell

me this, what is more controversial than telling the truth?

I went into racing knowing it was a business and I believed I could be a

champion. I then asked to have Dana Whitney

ride on all the horses. He was pulling

horses to prevent them from winning. This trainer was Stephanie

Beattie. I am not kidding, read the transcripts. Out of the 100 jockeys I am

going make a guess at the other two: Dana Whitney and Willie Otero. When the largest stable in the country moves in, it is cause for

concern. I have spent my career defending myself

from the corrupt, with their fear of you hearing me.

They believed that the Commission had immunities that they could hide

behind. That is

not what I want.

There came a time in late 2009 that I fired Willie Otero. I noticed how they looked frequently at him for approval

during trial.

MANCHESTER, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Michael Gill Racing today made the following statement regarding horse


Penn National can’t say they are concerned about horses and jockeys when

they don’t even vet check horses on their own grounds. It was not a coincidence

that it is these three jockeys that led a boycott of riding my horses in


At the trial, I listened to three Commissioners (Hamm, Hannum, and

Sweeney) and the Executive Secretary Dillon. They were cheating. “It was clean, and the horses were in

good condition.”

I am no longer in horse racing, but I spent $51 million dollars from

1999 to 2009 on horses. Look back at all my years in

racing and tell me this isn’t the truth. I had raced over 1,400 starts in 2009 outside of Penn National

and only had one breakdown. At the time,

horses stabled on the grounds did not get even a vet check before they

raced. There was actually one trainer with more total

breakdowns with only about 600 starts

What he’s referring to is consistently profiting week after week and year after year from punting.

He then put these horses through a set of betting system simple rules to eliminate any risks they may be carrying. Ok now don’t go all skeptical on me at this point. The majority of punters that lose money on horse racing try to make big sums of money from just a few dollars. Few betting systems deliver on what they promise. This is a betting system that really delivers.

Horse Racing Betting Systems – Do they Work?

Don’t get me wrong. In the limited space I have available in this article there’s no way I can fully convince you about how much you can learn from this guys betting system. The twist is, you don’t even bet for a win! By betting for a place only you dramatically increase the odds in your favor. Its safe, quick and easy… it’s so easy that at times it feels almost unfair. Also why place betting on favorites is the safest and easiest way to profit from horse racing betting. It is theoretically possible to make a consistent profit on investing in high priced non favorites at the track. I can say in all honesty that as a former frustrated punter it is well worth the time checking out this information. Its simply a matter of consistently following the betting system.

Let me assure you that the betting system is written in plain English and it’s easy enough for a 11 year old to use. Doing it this way is going to take you 18 hours a day of research just to figure out which horses may produce the goods. Occasionally they will get lucky and succeed. The guy shows you how he maintained a win strike rate of 89.52% and a place strike rate of 96.35% using his own betting system.

There are lots of so called Horse Racing betting systems out there. For a betting system, believe me, that’s pretty revolutionary!

First off all let me clarify something, when he talks about making money from horse racing betting, he’s not talking about a few freak or lucky wins in a month. Does anyone really have the spare time to do this consistently? Call me lazy but why make things hard for yourself betting on hard to pick non favorites when you can very, very easily profit from the favorites! . I’ve been ripped off before with horse racing betting systems so I understand exactly where you’re coming from. However investing on certain favorites that have passed a set of Ali’s betting system rules will definitely set the odds in your favor in a very big way!

So the Horse racing betting system in a nutshell goes something like this:-

Everyone knows that the favorites have a high chance of winning a race right? What Ali’s system does is to select only certain types of favorites that have even a much higher chances of winning. If you want to be shown a step-by-step outline of exactly how you can use Ali’s betting system, How to ‘Place Bets’ on Favorites for a Living, to consistently earn an income from horse racing betting, then head on over to the website at

He answers the questions of why place betting on favorites is simply the quickest way to profit from horse racing betting. What you end up with is a set of very secure favorites that have an extremely high chance of winning. You’ve sent away for stuff that never quite reached you, or you bought something and it didn’t live up to its expectations. Most never even try a betting system, something which is essential to actually make a consistent profit on horse betting.

I recently came across Mohammed Ali’s Betting system, How to ‘Place Bets’ on Favorites for a Living. Its already been extensively used in America, Hong Kong, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, UK and most of Europe for over 13 years by thousands of people. He lays the complete betting system out before you, why bet on favorites and why for a place? The answer… With How to ‘Place Bets’ on Favorites for a Living , you don’t need any prior horse betting or statistics knowledge. Plus it takes only 10-20 minutes to use on any race day. The word here is lucky, in the long run they will certainly lose money. When you bet on well priced non-favorites, you are effectively betting against the odds.

Ali’ betting system can be applied to any gallop horse race in the world

Character motivation can be especially interesting for authors, novelists, playwrights and writers, which will give them a reason to understand why characters behave in a particular fashion in real life.

Character motivation creates action and individualizes character. All these behaviors are pre-decided by character motivation.

So, what is character motivation? Character motivation is what that motivates characters to behave in a particular way. Some characters may behave in a positive way, some in the negative way and some may be neutral. Suppose a character, John hates Miranda because according to the novel (play), Miranda insulted John in the past, which he could not forget. They behave differently in the same situation and also in different situations. Use of character motivation will help them to make the character more congruent and true.

Author’s Bio: 

In a novel or a play, character motivation explains why a particular character of the novel or the play, act in the way they do. you) do something without any reason (motivation), people surrounding you on interacting with you, will not be able to understand you and will not believe you, because you behaved in a way without any reason. So, inability to forget the insult caused by Miranda is the character motivation for John for hating her.

Character motivation is very important because it provides the character a reason to do something.

Let’s take an example,

. Character motivation is attached to general life. Suppose, characters in a novel, do something without any reason, then the viewers will not be able to believe them because there is no reason for their behavior. But it is also used in case of writing such as fiction writing, drama, movies, plays and others. Likewise, in real life also the same rule applies.

Character motivation results from many different factors. They will be able to make the characters more consistent and believable with the help of their knowledge about character motivation. It propels the personality of the character.

Bikash writes for Big Poker Star,which is a reliable and trustworthy poker review site that provides poker reviews, strategies, rules, stats and other resources to help you play better poker online and earn more money.

Character motivation is what that propels inside characters. All these factors in the individual affect character motivation. Depending on these factors, a character will behave or react in a particular fashion.

Not all characters behave in the same way. If your character (i.e. If there is no reason to do something, people will not be able to believe in the characters. Their behavior is governed by their character motivation.

We often hear the phrase “character motivation” and wonder what it is. These factors may include upbringing, ethics, aspirations in life, thinking habits, environment and others. Without character motivation, characters will not be able to react in a particular fashion and so all of them will look similar. Character motivation describes why a particular character behaves in a specific way

Of course you can check out our system by looking at the previous results to see how good it really is! Just check the results in the national press and you will see that a favorite will win at least 1 race in 1 of the race meetings, every day!

If this horse wins; you have now recovered the 28.57 you lost in the first race and the 19.64 in the second plus the additional £50. So to win £98.21 you will need to place a bet of 49.10.

1. This means across the country there are in excess of 20 races and if just 1 out of the 20 races the favorite wins, YOU’RE A WINNER. The higher the % the more risk you have of needing to “top up” your bank with more funds. CONTRATULATIONS, YOU’RE A WINNER. After holding onto these secrets and amassing a private fortune over the past 16 years, he finally decided it was time to come out and share some of his knowledge with the world.

If this horse wins, you have recovered the £28.57 you lost in the first race, plus the additional £50 target. Target winnings, giving a total of £98.21. Please see for the latest winning tips and strategies.

This can be worked out by dividing 4 by 7 (7-4 odds) and then multiply it by 50 (£50)



This can be worked out by dividing 1 by 2 (2-1 odds) and multiplying it by £98.21.

. Let’s say the favorite is 7-4. Such as or you must go to your local bookies and check the odds in the last 15-10 minutes before a race.

If the favorite didn’t win again, simply continue with this method remembering to up your stake to ensure you win back all your losses as well as your targeted winnings until the favorite does win. As you can imagine the chances of not a single favorite winning out of the 20 races is very small.

So here’s the horse racing system (see for full info)…

3. So to win 78.57 you will need to place a bet of 19.64. remember your in this only to win!)

Try this out for yourself for a few days without actually gambling any money. Simply put, if a favourite wins, you win.

The first step in using this system is to set a value of how much you wish to win each day. (Of course it could be just a bank of £100 and your target winnings be £5, it’s up to you and the size of your pocket. If the horse doesn’t win, again don’t despair, simply go on to the next race following the same procedure as in 2. He’s flown under the radar for virtually his entire adult life, beating the casinos and stockpiling his winnings.

Now quit for the day!

The most important rule of this system that you should never break is that once you have reached your goal winnings for that day, YOU QUIT AND WALK AWAY.

Now quit for the day!

So for this example we say you have a bank of £1000, and therefore require our winnings each day to be £50. CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE A WINNER. In order to win £50.00 you will need to place a bet of £28.57.

This system relies on the fact that in all of the days race meetings that at least 1 favorite will win one of the races. There are usually 3 or 4 race meetings each day 6 of 7 races per meeting. Locate the favorite for this race, take its odds “to win” and then calculate how much stake you need to put down in order to win £50.

To ensure you always choose the favorite of each race, you will need to either open an account on line.

Now follow the most important rule of the day and quit for the day!

As you can see the more races that take place where the favorite doesn’t win, your loses become more and more, therefore meaning you need to place a larger stake on the next race to win back your loses. CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE A WINNER. A total of 78.57. The favorite in the next race is 2-1. Newspapers do like to give you their suggested favorite; however these will not always be the excepted and agreed favorite. In the first meeting of the day you currently have a bank of £1000 and you wish to win £50.

Yes it’s true: Ellison Mansfield has made a career out of gambling. This is why it is suggested to only place 5% of your bank.

If this horse wins you are now £50.00 up. In the last 9 months of using this system, I have never witnessed a day where that happened.

View More Videos from the “Hobbies” category:

This can be worked out by dividing 1 by 4 (4-1 odds) and then multiply it by 78.57 (£)

Of course no system is 100% guaranteed to win every time and we do not give this guarantee either, but you will agree that the odds of not a single favorite winning any of the races around the country in one day is as close to impossible as you can imagine. If the horse doesn’t win, don’t despair, go on to the next race, but this time in order to be £50 up for the day, you need to win back the 28.57 you lost in the last race plus an additional £50 for your on target winnings. As a rough rule, the safest figure is 5% of your total bank.

This is purely down to you. Target. Remembering that in order to be £50 up for the day, you will need to win back the 28.57 you lost in the first race and the 19.64 in the second race, plus the additional £50. Let’s say for the next race, the favorite is at 4-1
