My 2017 New Years Betting Wish list

(1) Avoid the 'false value trap' and wager on substance only.
(2) Money management, money management and money management
(3) Discipline to avoid the exotics wagering format as it is a fools paradise (at least for me).
(4) Take advantage of the parlay format involving place and show wagers for frequent cashing wagers and limited losing runs. My records indicate consistent profit.
(5) Get into the habit of avoiding wet racing surfaces for the most part
(6) Limit listening to the advice of 'so called' experts
(7) Take advantage of research time in an ever changing game
(8) Avoid any emotional responses to tough losing wagers
(9) Stay with a businesslike wagering method for the 'Day at the Races' trip to the race track
(10) Find the discipline (and time) to post on a regular basis instead of the scattered style of posting I have exhibited in the past.


Most of all I wish a very Happy New Year to All!!!

Another update

My new job has me very busy the past few weeks ( but I do enjoy it). Not an abundance of wagers the past 19 days with a loss on the account. Looking forward to the beginning of the year and a fresh start.

Three is for me

Three wagers on this Friday with two cashes for a 4.645 point profit on the account. Both cashing wagers won their respective races with a 9/2 and 3/1 marker, however, I stick to my plan of frequent cashing wagers using the place and show pools only which offer some real value opportunities.

Another Happy update

A profit of over 10 points on the account the past ten days with a mostly grind out approach. Winning a little, losing a little and a big win day made up the composition of the results. The early  Winter racing schedule has been consistent with fairly large fields for the most part. Gulfstream Park opens up their meeting in a few days which will provide some large fields and turf races which can provide the value selections.


My best to all out there!
