Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

On Friday, the day before the Pegasus, I was planning to put in a late pick 4 wager at Santa Anita. But after looking at my spreadsheet, I didn’t feel confident about my selections. Although the races had small fields, it looked like anyone could win. The last race had the biggest field and was […]

This past Wednesday TVG had one of their pick 4 bonus promos at Gulfstream Park. My pick 4 wager hinged on a single in the 8th race. Munnys Gold is a 3-year-old Female trained by Todd Pletcher who had won her first race by 14 lengths. I was concerned about the 223-day layoff and the […]

For the month of January, TVG has a late pick 4 promo running on Wednesdays at Gulfstream Park and Fridays at Santa Anita. Last week I managed to get 3 out of 4 races correct and missed out on a $296.90 payout. After coming so close, I decided to work on an Excel spreadsheet macro […]

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

2022 was the first full season of horse racing since the pandemic began in 2020. At the end of the year, I like to check out my Fanduel (TVG) account summary wagering results.

My $1 Exacta at Gulfstream

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

This past month it has been a challenge for me to place a winning wager. I have found that certain times of the year it becomes more difficult. In the early spring trainers are testing their horses to see what conditions work best. In the late fall, trainers are looking for conditions that favor horses […]

Back-to-Back Trifectas

I was bored on Sunday, so I decided to put $100 into my wagering account and try my luck at Keeneland again. I knew I would need some money in my account for the upcoming Breeder’s Cup races anyway. First, I placed two money back special win bets, one on race 7 at Keeneland and […]

Canterbury Park + 1st Bet

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

For the 2022 racing season Canterbury Park in Minnesota announced that they had changed to 1st Bet as their official betting app. Previously, they used an onsite web portal called “BetCanterbury”. I liked using their web portal. You could wager on Canterbury or races at other tracks. The only thing it didn’t have was handicapping […]
