Back-to-Back Trifectas

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

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”.

You get the experience of taking a drink without the sensation that the alcohol provides. I often watch horse racing for entertainment. That’s a sign that you are […]

Handicapping Claiming Races

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

Claiming races can be some of the hardest horse races to handicap. Many times, the horses all have very similar records. The claiming race will have entry rules like “Three Year Olds, and Upward Which Have Never Won Two Races.” or “Three Year Olds, and Upward Which Have Never Won Three Races.” The horses may […]

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 […]
