The Daily Bankroll Challenge

by Seth Merrow
Matching wits--and a mythical bankroll--with the top handicappers

2010 Racing Season

Saratoga Race Course
Friday, July 23, 2010
Total for the meet... $1000.00

We start the 2010 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.


No racing.

Profit/Loss for the day... $


We still haven't forgotten the typo that cost us a season-long profit on the final day of the meet last year. Heck, that's the kind of thing you never forget. But we took consolation in getting it right - despite the gaffe that didn't allow us to claim the "victory". Extra careful typing this year!

Not a lot jumped off the page today - but that 7th race is kind of intriguing, so we'll just dip our toes into the water to start the meet.

RACE SEVEN...$5 WP on Malibu Cougar.
...$5 exacta box... Playing Pirates/Heavenly Pride/Malibu Cougar.

All turf wagers are turf only

Total bet...$46.00
