Decisions

Two wagers  on this Saturday with both cashing situations for a 4.03 point profit. I showed good discipline on a day that offered plenty of validated value spots, of which I passed when the edge was not clear. these last minute decisions are a product of the wagering strategy that i have chosen as i use the latest odds available before each contest.

All the Best! Jake

Good Days

A couple of good days with Thursday and Friday producing a 22.65 profit on the account with 4 winning wagers out of 5 wagering place or show. As the Spring season begins with today's opening of the Keeneland Spring Meeting with it's full fields of competitive racing including grass racing the opportunities for profits are enhanced.

Some might argue that wagering a limited amount of time in the win pool is not the greatest path to successful wagering. This premise might be factual, but the long losing runs that occur with the straight wagering can have a detrimental affect of the players psychology...with me this is a fact as i am not suited to the long losing runs.

Anyway i have chosen my charted path after much thought and research and I will proceed with confidence. Plenty of possibilities on the Saturday cards from Aqueduct and Keeneland with their Derby Prep races.

Update

The account is now at a +8 points. I have been concentrating on the [place and show pools] mostly and recording some nice value. In the past few weeks i have lost a few photo finishes on the win end that has me backing off from this straight bet and wagering in the back holes as a hedge against jockey error and the short head loser.

Some days I have wagered on 7 or 8 spots while the average has been 3 or 4 for each day.

All the best!

Patience Pays

Yesterday i sat without making a wager through a busy Sunday of racing. Today, i continued in the waiting mode until the Parx 3rd event where my horse I'M SLEEPING IN the second choice @ 3/1 in the morning line, was 7/1 at post time as they made the race favorite the 3/2 over bet choice in the betting.

RULE: When you see excellent value 7/1 on what i thought would be 5/2 i doubled my wager and watched as my charge waltzed around the oval on the lead for a mile and 70 yards and won the race going away paying $16 to win. Yes, it does pay to be patient in this game. especially when they are giving double odds offered on your selection.

A profit of 22.5 points on the account on this one bet day!!

Quiet Sunday

Viewed dozens of races on this Sunday but kept my money safe with no wagers. I am working on my discipline to wait for the best opportunities and when a potential wager has a negative that i deem serious I pass. The game plan is to wager with confidence and without any wishing, hoping or guesses...enough said.

Big Racing Day

A very busy Saturday with big races at a number of tracks. I settled in for the Gulfstream Park Race3 a 7 furlong claiming event with AMACE my selection @ 5/2. Though he stumbled at the start he recovered raced in mid pack made a middle move at the half mile pole and won by a 1 1/4 lengths with steady urging.

The remainder of the day i made place and show wagers on high probability realistic value horses that brought an additional 2.95 points to the account.

Two Month Update

After a two month absence from posting(what else is new) LOL My current status is +3.15 points. It has been a difficult beginning of the year as my home town track Aqueduct has been racing about three days a week and has had numerous weather related cancellations. These cancellations and the wet weather has forced a very limited participation searching for legitimate good value betting situations. The betting cards will improve in March and that is a good thing,

Best of luck to all!
