Horse Wagering Strategy

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

There is a lot of information out there about how to handicap a horse race. But it is just as important to have a solid wagering strategy. I have been wagering on the races for more than 10 years, and it has taken me that long to figure out how to develop a decent wagering […]

2021 Wagering Results

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

This year’s horse wagering season has been filled with highs and lows (just like every year). I decided to take a break from wagering back in August after a losing streak at Del Mar. With the 2021 Breeder’s Cup races coming up on November 5th, I am thinking twice about adding money to my TVG […]

Finding Longshots

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

Lately I’ve been having some success betting against the favorites. Most of the time I only have to bet against myself. After I pick the top 3 horses to put in my trifecta wager, it’s usually the one that I decided to ignore that ends up winning the race. So, I’ve started placing a win […]

2021 Kentucky Derby

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

Another Kentucky Derby, another wagering disappointment. Congratulations if you picked Medina Spirit to win the race. Like most who follow horse racing, I had dismissed Baffert’s chances to win the derby this year. Medina Spirit was his 4th string runner. This made it hard to bet on the horse, considering the other more accomplished entries […]

My $50 Free Bet at GSP

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

During the past year I had to cut back on my horse race gambling hobby. There has been no money in the budget to gamble with. I still log into TVG, but only to play their free pick 5 and pick 8 contests. I only had about $8 in my account after a bad run […]

Mistress of Egypt

Published by Lucky Dog under Casinos, Indian Casinos, Minnesota.

Earlier this month (October), I decided to visit the local Indian casino to see what had changed since my last visit. The last time I was in a casino was in late 2019, before the pandemic hit. The first difference was the facial temperature scanner that you have to pass before you can enter. Once […]

2020 Kentucky Derby Review

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

The 2020 Kentucky Derby was held on September 5th this year instead of May 2nd because of the pandemic. Only 15 horses made it to the race and no spectators were allowed at Churchill Downs. Tiz The Law, trained by Barclay Tagg, was the overwhelming favorite to win. I placed only two wagers on the […]

Sports Without Spectators

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing, Other.

In the world of horse racing, during the past few months, the only game in town has been at Gulfstream and Tampa Bay. There were a few other small tracks with races, but those were the two that hosted the best races. I have had a hard time reproducing the 75 to 1 win from […]

Winning at 75 to 1

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

February 18, 2020 was President’s Day, a holiday in the United States. Several horse tracks around the country were open for racing to take advantage of those who had Monday off. I was able to add to my bankroll on Friday and Saturday, my usual days for watching the races. I took a break on […]
