The Daily Bankroll Challenge
by Seth Merrow
Matching wits--and a mythical bankroll--with the top handicappers
2011 Racing Season
Saratoga Race Course
Tuesday, August 9, 2011
Total for the meet... $860.60
We're kickin' our mythical bankroll up to $1200 to start the 2011 Saratoga thoroughbred race meet. In past years we've started with $1000, but with the 40-day meet a $1200 bankroll gives us a reasonable $30/day average. Each day we'll use this space to record our mythical best bets and calculate the accumulated wins and losses.
