Lost five points on the account today with two 'valuable' wagers at Parx that were the typical good bet bad result scenario. I have squandered my profit to date and will take a few days off for the Thanksgiving Holiday on Thursday. If something is strong on the Holiday I will get involved.

My update for the past ten days shows a win-lose-lose pattern which accounted for a 17.3 point loss on the account. Made some bad wagers that were under valued at post time and with the huge volume of 'late' money showing up at the final seconds of wagering I took the worst of the percentages.

All in all despite the loss I am making good wagers, for the most part and the profits will be there when the luck changes.

Small profit

A time of patience for myself with the racing cards the past few days with today being no exception. Found a suitable spot in the Churchill Downs 8th race and with my $4.20 show payoff I brought a 2.2 point profit on the account. I do anticipate more opportunities in the future to keep with my plan of a maximum of three wagers per day.

All the best!  Jake

Quiet Time

No wagers for Monday and Tuesday. There were a few that I considered but, in the final decision was not a favorable risk vs reward scenario.

Breeders Cup Weekend

The Breeders Cup had a very successful event this year at Santa Anita in beautiful sunny Southern California(one of these years I will get out there). My wagering returned a three day profit:

Friday: +8.10 Pts.  Saturday: +11.115 Pts.  Sunday: +0.975 Pts. +20.1 total profit

 I was very careful picking my spots with the insistence on having an edge. no edge. no bet...no deviations was the phrase. I tend to accept more wagers than normal on these 'big event' days and it has hurt my bottom line through out the years. I fall into the trap of value, for value alone, and the successful wagers are value with the proven edge otherwise the wager is in-complete.

I will be looking over the dark day cards for Monday and Tuesday for any opportunities.
