Belmont Park Opening day

The opening of the Belmont Park Spring/Summer meeting was today and i attended the races and kept my powder dry with no wagers through out the ten race card which is a rarity for my betting style,

I remain in profit for the year with this update but the profit margin has been cut in half with this reporting period.

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.

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!
