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 […]

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 […]

2019 Wagering Season Review

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

As I write this, there are still 6 weeks left in 2019, but most of the major races have been completed, so I thought I would review my season results. I put even fewer deposits into my online account this past season. I often played the free contests and needed a minimum amount of wagering […]

Cash Keeper Part 2

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

TVG has now integrated their Cash Keeper contest into their main website. It appears that most of the bugs that I ran into during the beta phase have been fixed. You can log into your TVG account and click on the Cash Keeper contest without having to log in separately to each web site. The […]

Winning big on the pick 4

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

On July 12, 2019 a guy in New York won the largest pick 4 payout in Canterbury Park’s history. The winning ticket paid $31,622. It was interesting to read about how this was accomplished, considering how many long shots have to come in to get a payout that large. The winning horses in each race […]
