This past weekend it was in the 90’s here in Minnesota, which makes it feel like the 100’s with the humidity. The horses ran pretty good despite the warm temps. I went back to betting straight exactas and trifectas instead of boxing them. I think I would have won one extra bet if I had been boxing, but the extra money it takes to do that on every race isn’t worth it in the long run. I seem to do better if I go with my first guess and not try to play lots of different combinations. I tried some pick 4’s, but I haven’t been very successful with that. I broke even for the day by winning two exacta bets in 9 races. I usually don’t stay that long, but the crowd was thin and the last two races were quarter horse sprints which are always fun to watch. At least they have air conditioning and lots of beverages in the upper and lower levels at Canterbury so you can cool off.
