Betting with a small bankroll

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

During the month of June my goal was to see if I could build up my bankroll by betting wiser and less frequently. My total wager amount was $126.40, and I ended up with $196.80 from 11 winning wagers. The average win was about $18. The biggest win was $32.75 on a pick 3 at […]

As promised in my last post, here is my review of Equibase’s Smart Pick tool. You first need to setup an account on Equibase.com to get access to their free horse picking tools. The tools can be found when you look at the race entries page for a race. The two I use most often […]

GTips vs. RDudes

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

If you are into horse racing, you have probably searched the Internet for websites that offer free picks. Most free pick web sites that sell tip sheets only show you the most likely winner. If you want more, they offer exotics and multi race picks for a price. I often wondered how accurate their free […]

2022 Preakness Results

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

This year’s Preakness was held on 5/21/22 at Pimlico. The finishing order was 5 (Early Voting), 8 (Epicenter), 2 (Creative Minister), 4 (Secret Oath). In my last post I listed 4,5,8 as my picks for the Preakness. I just noticed that I made an error listing Simplification as horse #5. Simplification was actually horse #1. […]

Canterbury Park 2022

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

Canterbury Park’s 2022 racing season runs from May 18 to Sept 17. For horse players they have a low 10% takeout on the early pick 4 and pick 5 wagers. There is something happening for the family almost every weekend. Although, I find the basset hound, corgi, wiener dog, and zoo animal contests an unwanted […]

Did Sonny Leon Cheat?

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

After reading this news report about Sonny Leon, who won the 2022 Kentucky Derby on Rich Strike, it doesn’t look good for him. The report says that Leon has been suspended 5 times since September 2021 for aggressive riding. This usually means blocking other horses or overuse of the whip. I found it disturbing that […]

Winning Wager – Cancelled

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

On Saturday (3/26/22) I was making some small wagers on the horse races at Meydan, Saudi Arabia. In the 9th race I had a trifecta with “Life is Good” to win with 3 other horses underneath. I noticed that TVG had a money back special on the race if your win pick finished in 2nd […]

$371 Pick 4 at Gulfstream

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

After my Santa Anita pick 4 win on Friday, I only put in a couple small wagers on Saturday. Oaklawn Park had a few stakes races including the grade 3 Whitmore stakes. I never seem to do well at Oaklawn, and Saturday was no exception. I decided to look for a pick 4 opportunity and […]

$140 Pick 4 at Santa Anita

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

On Friday (3/18/22) I placed a bet on the 50-cent late pick 4 at Santa Anita. I was once again trying to get a piece of the $3000 bonus money that TVG was offering for winners of the late pick 4 on Fridays. I had two horses in the first race, one in the second, […]
