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 […]

I was recently invited to try the new Cash Keeper contest on TVG. The contest is run on a separate website and you use your TVG account to log in and play. Like most contests on TVG it’s free to play. You get $1000 dollars to play with and there are 10 handicapping questions that […]

2018 Wagering Season Review

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

The 2018 horse racing season has been the usual mix of highs and lows. I invested about 50% less into my bankroll in 2018, but was able to generate enough wins to enable a similar number of wagers. Unfortunately, my biggest win was only around $300. I put more effort into pick 3’s, 4’s, and […]

2017 Wagering Season Review

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since my last update. I feel like I have gained more experience this year watching and betting on the races. This still hasn’t translated into any big wins. But, my bankroll has held up much better than last year. At the larger tracks, it was a little […]

2016 Wagering Season Review

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

As 2016 comes to an end, it’s time to look back and review what was learned from this year’s horse racing season. I was never able to come close to my $750 trifecta win earlier in the season. Tracks like Del Mar, Woodbine, Belmont, and Aqueduct proved to be a challenge. I have yet to find a formula […]

TVG Online Horse Wagering

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

In July 2016 online horse wagering became legal in the state of Minnesota. Being an avid horse race fan, I took advantage of the new law and opened an online wagering account on TVG. For the most part it has been a good experience being able to pick and choose the races I want to watch […]

2016 Wagering Tactics

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

Every year I try something new to help improve my horse wagering results. This year I’ve been using the new TrackMaster® EquiGraphix report from Equibase. The report costs $3 for one race card. It includes the TrackMaster Platinum PP’s and 4 additional online screens of info, Bubble Capper, Signals, Speed/Class graphs, and Player graphs. The BubbleCapper is […]
