Whatwins is a pay site that has been in operation for about a year now. Dave is a computer programmer who has crunched hundreds of thousands of harness races, and comes up with an odds line, value plays and ROI plays. He has graciously offered the card free of charge ($10 value), all you have to do is email him at and he will send it your way. For the Pool party, Dave allowed us to reprint his system picks here:

"ITP" chimes in next, with his picks. He is a professional player and has been for a great many years. You can follow him on Twitter here.

In what looks to be a probable chalky sequence, it leads to....
1. Taking the obvious, which is not what you want to do
2. Narrowing one or two of the races down so you can maybe hit it a few times
3. Trying to beat Foiled Again as he will be a single on most tickets and that is where the overpay will occur
I'm going to play a combo of 2 and 3.
9th race looks like a 1,3,5,6,8 spread but I'm going to gamble and narrow here.  Yannick launched #3 Village Janus last week as she rattled off a 27.4 3rd Q in an impressive win.  #1 Monkey On My Wheel was a very good 2nd in her first race off the layoff and gets the rail.  Hoping that Yannick can out-drive Brewer (#5 Camille)...#6 Mach Lady gets roughed up if she leaves...#8 Lauren will be behind #1 Monkey, who has never been passed.  Easy as that #1 & #3
10th race seems like Foiled Again is a cinch, but I can't stand keying a horse that will be singled on most and on almost every ticket. So let's try #3 Foiled Again, #4 Aracache Hanover, #6 Art Professor and #8 Atochia
11th race seems impossible and can't really seperate any of the top 5 contenders.  Using #1 Call Me Yours, #2 Miss Maverick, #4 Exquisite Alberta, #5 Racy Gal Hanover and #7 Chief Karen....and hope.
12th race looks like #1 Blissful Breeze, #2 Daddy Mac, #3 Four Starz Trace, #4 Part Shark and #7 Upfront Hoosierboy.  I like #1 & #4 better than #2 (missed 3 weeks), #3 (not very good last week) #7 (bad post, bad spot).
So the main ticket would be 1,3 with 3,4,6,8 with 1,2,4,5,7 with 1,2,3,4,7
Extra ticket would be 1,3 with 3,4,6,8 with 1,2,4,5,7 with 1,4
If you think Foiled Again can't lose, I would play this ticket multiple times 1,3 with 3 with 1,2,4,5,7 with 1,4
