The day begins at 11:00 am when we meet at the "Big Red Spring" tent for light refreshments. At 11:30 we will enjoy a fun and informative presentation by Kelly Smith-Lawless on how to apply our analysis skills and techniques to the field of horse race handicapping.

On weekdays, Kelly is the Director of Agency Program Services for the Department of Motor Vehicles. In this capacity, she oversees the Department's PMO, Program Analysis, and Data Services units that provide project management, business analysis, and data sales/analytics services for the agency.
Her alter ego, Togafilly, can be found at the Saratoga Race Course. She competed at the 2011 National Handicapping Contest in Las Vegas, as a result of coming in 2nd at the inaugural 2010 Saratoga Handicapping contest. Kelly is passionate about the sport of kings (Horse racing) and enjoys sharing her love of the game with anyone willing to listen!
After the presentation we will share lunch at the meeting site, and then spend the afternoon together enjoying the Saratoga experience. And see how well we can apply our new found handicapping skills! We have use of the tent for the entire day.
