The Daily Bankroll Challenge
by Seth Merrow
Matching wits--and a mythical bankroll--with the top handicappers
2012 Racing Season
Saratoga Race Course
Friday, August 24, 2012
Total for the meet... $974.00
We kicked our mythical bankroll up to $1200 to start the 2011 Saratoga thoroughbred race meet - and we'll hold there this season. 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.
