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!
