My Place

I have talked about playing parlays. Particularly place parlays. I have a friend who said he would have a 12 race parlay that would begin on Friday and end on Sunday. His bankroll was $50, and the best part, he is still alive with two plays left.

He has made ten plays up to this point, and he has $2,883.26 from a $50 investment. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. But, this guy is sharp and he does keep his plan no matter what.

So, on Sunday his roll is at stake. I have to say that I may have called it quits with the investment / return at this point. But this guy is one of the only folks I know who has focus and determination at the track. If he said it would have been three bets, he would have stopped. But, it is a staggering 12 wagers.

I guess by now you want to know where his last two wagers are going to take place. Here is his plan win or lose. In Race #2 at Arlington he likes #4 Rahoo. The parlay finishes out with a dead-chalk in the 4th Race at Hollywood with #6 Indian Blessing.

I guess wagers like this can make your knees weak. But, for the “Railbird” he sees it as his $50 original wagering dollars allotted. He stands to make it a good weekend. I tried not to pry too much into his plan, but this was one that caught my interest. So, if you are combing through the results on Sunday night take a look at these two final plays. I sure hope he takes it down…..
