Outstanding Day

Today was Florida Derby Day at Gulfstream Park and I made three wagers on the card and returned a nice 9.46 point profit on the account. The Derby was a main selection as Always Dreaming romped in the 1 1/8 contest beating a 4/5 favorite who managed to finish a distant third.


This is certainly an up and down game as I roller coaster my way through out the year ahead and then manage to give the profit all back. I want to gain some type of consistency in my betting so I will be concentrating on the place and show pools looking for realistic value with my advantage selections.


All the Best!!

One Bet debacle

Made one wager today at Fairgrounds with my horse not finishing the race because of a nasty spill...enough said. I will regroup by taking off the last day of the month, enough said!

6 day Update

A loss of over 6 points on the account over the past six days. Most of the horses ran into trouble throughout the race, however, that's racing as once the gates open the 'chaos' begins! But we love the game!!


Thankfully the inner dirt track at Aqueducts Winter Meeting was completed on Sunday, the main track opens on Friday for the Spring Meeting with turf racing in the near future.

2 Day Update

A small loss of 1.375 points on the account on Tuesday and Wednesday with 3 wagers and only one successful transaction. A bit of a slow wagering days which is normal on the 'dark' days when my regular circuit the New York racing Association is dormant.

Positive Monday

Today I wagered on three races from Fairgrounds that produced a fine 6.465 point profit. Very solid selections that were high percentage situations. No careless or reckless behavior today!!! I take it one day at a time.

Same Bad habits

My old habits surfaced over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday racing cards producing a loss of almost 30 points on the account. I wagered on a Pick 4 and a Pick 3 with a substantial investment of racing capital ( my bad excuse), is that I was in the black! I have to control the urge to wager on these highly speculative serial wagers because they are very low percentage though high yield bets. My discipline was disturbed by these wagers and the greed factor which is a hard control at times.


Still ahead 5.105 points after the melt down. will I learn from my destructive mistakes?????

Gulfstream Park ( Again)

Once again I visited Gulfstream Park on this Thursday and concentrated on two races the 5th, which I passed ( too many variables), for a confident wager, and the 11th. The 11th was a maiden claiming event at 7 1/2 furlongs on the turf. Miss Biondetti was my selection and rewarded with a 5/1 win and 8/5 show payoff to produce a nice 13.425 point profit on the day.


Tomorrow Aqueduct is back in action, my home circuit.


All the best!
