The Daily Bankroll Challenge

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

2003 Racing Season

Saratoga Race Course
Thursday, August 28, 2003
Total for the meet...$826.90

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.


We had a solid $103.0 in plays out there on Wednesday and managed to eke out a small profit. Unfortunately we swung for the fences with the Sheppard runner in the 7th, 33-1 Blossum. If that one scores we're in the catbird seat. But it wasn't to be. Even more frustrating in that race -- even though the longshot key play there faltered we were still alive late with our tri box, but we ended up running 1-2-4. Doh!

Otherwise, there were a few nice, little nibbling scores during the afternoon that propelled us forward.
