The Daily Bankroll Challenge

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

2003 Racing Season

Saratoga Race Course
Sunday, August 24, 2003
Total for the meet...$781.95

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.


Frustrating. Bold Love just couldn't get it done in the 2nd -- finishing second at 5-1.

But our real disappointment was the Sheppard/Augustin runner in the nightcap. We had plenty of plays riding on that one and we received an exciting 18-1. However, the horse was bumped soundly coming out of the gate -- but thereafter jockey just never put the horse into a position to compete at any point on the track and coming down the lane we had absolutely nowhere to go and eventually the runner lost interest.
