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 the other on race 6 at Santa Anita. I then played a few win bets at Gulfstream that didn’t pay out and went back to focus on Keeneland. I put in a small pick 3 wager starting with race 4. But I lost in the first leg because I had singled the favorite. I had the winner of the next two races. The pick 3 ended up paying $495. Since I had already handicapped race 5 and 6, I put in a win bet and a trifecta using the horses from the last two races of my now dead pick 3. I decided to change one horse in the race 5 trifecta and used all 3 horses from my pick 3 in race 6.

In race 5 my win bet was on Street Ready #13 at 6 to 1. Street Ready was on the AE (also eligible) list with a morning line of 3 to 1. Luis Saez was fast out of the gate and went to the rail on the lead. He won the race gate to wire with the other two horses in my trifecta close behind. The win paid $15.02, and the trifecta paid $64.86. In race 6, for my win bet, I decided to use a horse that wasn’t in my trifecta. The horse I went with was a long shot at 35 to 1 which ended up in 7th place. But, to my surprise, the three horses in my trifecta crossed the finish line with #13 winning again at 7 to 1. This trifecta paid $59.90. The two money back special win bets I put in also won. So, for the day, I ended up with $150 in winnings on $33 wagered. I withdrew some of my winnings and left some for the Breeder’s Cup races on November 4th and 5th. Looking forward to seeing Flightline run in the Breeder’s Cup Classic!
