The Daily Bankroll Challenge

Matching wits--and a mythical bankroll--with the top handicappers

2003 Racing Season

Saratoga Race Course
Friday, August 22, 2003
Total for the meet...$877.70

We started the 2003 Saratoga thoroughbred race meet with a mythical bankroll of $1000. Each day we'll use this space to record our mythical best bets and calculate the accumulated wins and losses.


Finally had one of our nightcap trifecta plays payoff. We scored with the key of our top pick over our next four choices. Hit it for $1. We would have had a $2 score if the show photo had gone the other way. We also would have collected $890.00/$2 if we'd juiced the wager up into superfecta territory. But we'll take the decent score and run with it...

RACE 1/2... $4 double... R1/Naughty Prince... R2/Sejm Boogie.
Ran R1/Eased... R2/5th.

RACE SIX... $5 exacta box... Proud Beauty/Trillion Wing. Cancel if Proud Beauty scratches.
Ran 2-6.

RACE NINE...$1 tri key... Russian Sweetiepie over I Met Somebody/Titia/High Post/Ms Rapunzel.
Collected $154.25 on the tri key ($308.50/$2).

Also... $1 tri box... Russian Sweetiepie/I Met Somebody/Titia/High Post sub Ms Rapunzel if scratch.
Doh! Ran 1-2-4-6 with our sub selection winning the show photo!

Also... $1 tri box... Russian Sweetiepie/I Met Somebody/Titia.
Ran 1-4-6.

Total profit for the day...$98.25


We'd love to bet into the turf races today -- but, frustratingly, we have at least a couple picks on the AE's in each of them. That makes it tough.

RACE 1/2... $10 double... R1/Quiet Challenge... R2/Shamrock Blues.
Also... $4 double... R1/Quiet Challenge... R2/So Social.

RACE SIX... $5 exacta box... Host/Noir Et Rouge... (cancel if Host scratches).

All turf wagers are turf only

Total bet...$24.00
