If I were a betting man….

Yeah, if only I made a wager of two I would’ve had a great weekend. – Not only that, I would parlay some of my winnings into a Super Bowl bet to start February off in fine fashion. – But, the crying is over and there is nothing to do except look forward. – Here are a couple of my “scared money” non-plays that took a good weekend into nothing.- As the gambling adage goes; ” God hates a coward.”


Aqueduct – Race #7 – Saturday


I had $200 to put into play and try my hand at a few power plays. – I love the #1 – Big Muddy. He switched riders from Eric Cancel to Manny Franco winning 24% and showed the dropping in class icon. – He was off for 45 days and came back to score $4.10  I was only going to bet $50 to win, and that would have been a $102.50 payoff for a $52.50 profit. – The top tier runner did not disappoint.


Gulfstream Park  – Race #7 – The Hurricane Bertie Stakes

I didn’t think the big race would offer the value I was looking for and was seeking another top tier selection a little earlier in the card. – In Race #7 / The Hurricane Bertie Stakes. The top tier selection was #2 – Dream Pauline and she sported the “Monster Workout” icon and had the services of Javier Castellano in the saddle winning at a 21% win clip. – The Last Race Rating and Composite were the field best and I loved Castellano in the irons when the big money is on the table. – It was going to be a $50 win bet and she won easily to pay $7.80. – That would have been a score for $195 and $145 profit.


After leaving money on the table I lost my desire to play any more. – I had a dream of rolling up a little bankroll and sending it flying on the New England Patriots at minus 2.5. – Go ahead and jump on board as I’m still steaming for my lack of follow through with the Winning Ponies E-Z Win Forms. – I’ll watch the game, but there will be no betting on the big game. – Why should I ? – I didn’t use my handicapping weapon of choice to make my day. – Just keep it in mind when you see Tom Brady hoisting the trophy there was a horseplayer who should have used the day as a bankroll builder.

It’s not too late for you! – Just dial up the Winning Ponies E-Z Win Forms and make yourself a few solid spot plays. – I sure hope you have better horse sense than I employed. – Just download and go to the windows. Make yourself a sweet little bankroll to start off February in fine fashion. – Best of luck!
