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.


RACES 1/2... $2 doubles... R1/Cozy Lion... R2/Elusive Tara/Niji's Grand Girl/Dixie Julep/Street Mate.
Ran R1/2nd... R2/2-3-4-10.

RACE FIVE... $2 exacta box... Changing Skies/Casablanca Smile/Gold d'Oro.
Collected - OUCH! - $7.60 on the ex box [$7.60/$2].
Frankly, this play became far less attractive after scratches reduced the field to only five.

Collected $26.20 on the ex box [$26.20/$2].

$2 exacta box... Ginger Snapit/Higher Desire.
