The Daily Bankroll Challenge

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

2003 Racing Season

Saratoga Race Course
Monday, August 25, 2003
Total for the meet...$870.65

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.


It's been a long tie 'tween drinks for us -- at least a season or two -- but finally a Sheppard Special comes through. The Sheppard/Augustin runner in the 3rd was our only winner on top over on the Picks Page -- but it worked out well, scoring at 8-1 and giving us a couple of exacta tickets.
