When I signed up for the Remington Park THOROENDURO fantasy horseracing challenge in August, I knew I wouldn’t have time to do remote viewing for 62 race days. Instead, I opted to rely on intuition–in other words, to just “guess” based on which horses’ names appealed to me.
My participation in Dave Silverstein’s group gave me the confidence to try something besides associative remote viewing. In that group, I’ve been using the pendulum to make sports predictions (over/under, winner/loser).
Here’s how the game worked: participants survived THOROENDURO until a race day when none of their selections finished in the top four of their respective race. Only selections that finished in 1st, 2nd or 3rd position received “virtual bankroll” credit based on the official pari-mutuel payoffs for that selection’s respective race. If a contestant failed to have any of their selections finish in the top four positions of any game race on a THOROENDURO contest date, they lost one Eligibility Life. This could force the contestant to go “In the Barn” for a period of time before being allowed back “In the Race” of THOROENDURO.
Because of my early sign-in, I had four “lives” before being disqualified. I managed to stay active through Nov. 21, Day 51, without being sent to the “Barn.” In the end, my intuition didn’t fail but I got distracted. I was traveling and didn’t enter any selections for two race days when I only had one “life” left.
My ranking throughout the contest was generally in the top quarter. For instance, on Day 45 (Nov. 9) I ranked 365th of 2,480 players. When the challenge ended on Dec. 15, despite missing ten race days, I still ranked in the top half–784th of 2,480 players. All in all, it was a fun way to gauge how well intuition can work.
