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!

Sunny Florida

After the significant snowfall that hit the New York City area yesterday it was nice to dream about attending beautiful Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Florida, (reality), even by a simulcast signal. Wagered on the 10th race Bluegrass Singer Off @ 4/1 went directly to the front in the field of 10 and though drifting out inside the last 100 yards secured the victory.


A gain of 2.27 points for the day on the lone wager.

Cheltenham Festival

With the action severely limited in the States I decided to wager on the Cheltenham Festival using the commentary of Wayward Lad and his fine blog. Had Melon for the place in the opener $3.60 as he finished a game second. In the next race I wagered on  two horses to win to take advantage of the 1/5 favorite Altior, well Charbel was leading until the final hurdle and went down at 13/1 WOW! tough break as I was counting my winnings!! That's racing as you have to cross the line first to get paid.


I enjoyed the races and will watch the remainder without any betting taking my 1.14 profit for the day.

Small profit

Three wagers from Fairgrounds Race course on this Monday with a $7.80 show price allowing for a 1.36 point profit on the account. A few heavy favorites on today's card which I made no attempts to beat as they were solid comprising weak fields.


A huge snow storm is arriving tonight so I have no idea if it will have any impact across the country for Tuesday's racing cards. So I will tread lightly at this moment.


All the best!

Back in Action

Back after an almost two months hiatus from posting. All is good I simply upgraded my network and have had work duties that has kept me very busy. Since my last posting I have lost over 23 points on the account. Mainly up and down win a little lose a little with a few bad runs-standard stuff.


Hope all is going well with all!
