The Daily Bankroll Challenge
by Seth Merrow
Matching wits--and a mythical bankroll--with the top handicappers
2010 Racing Season
Saratoga Race Course
Saturday, September 4, 2010
Total for the meet... $41.10
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 2-5... $1 P4... R2/Forest Whip/Nolita/... R3/Banker's Buy... R4/City Sneakers/Tom Kitten/Adirondack Warrior/Cookram Rock... R5/Simply Delightful.
Ran R2/2-DNF... R3/2nd... R4/WON-2-5-6... R5/3rd.
RACE FIVE... $10WP on Simply Delightful.
Yep, ran 3rd - at 5-1.
...$1 exacta box... Simply Delightful/Elusive Raven/Overseas Market/Plastique.
Yep, ran 1-3-5-8.
...$2 exacta box... Simply Delightful/Elusive Raven.
Again, because of bankroll limitations - we're placing a restriction:
This next play is only to be made if we have made enough to cover it with the earlier bets.
RACE NINE... $1 exacta box... Prince Will I Am/Silver Monuntain/Cheyenne Nation/Ordination.
No bet per restrictions.
Loss for the day... $44.00
We'll essentially fire our last bullets here - last, that is, unless we win...
RACE SIX...$3W/$2P on Economic Summit.
...$1 exacta box... Economic Summit/Scotus/Astrology/Praetereo.
...$4 exacta box... Economic Summit/Scotus/Astrology.
All turf wagers are turf only
If we are interested in both halves of an entry -- in event of a scratch -- it is noted that way [in other words, both halves are named]. If only one-half of the entry is named, then we prefer that half and will move to our next pick listed [rather than the other half of the entry] in event of a scratch.
