We’ve all had them and if you’ve ever made a wager on an horse race I’m sure you have a phone book full of stories of the bad beats, big wins, and the “if-only” wagers. – The last one fits under the heading of bets I would have won if only I would made the […]

The Eyes of Chicago Are Upon You

  I love Arlington Park. You have to get there at least an hour and half to walk around and examine the manicured grounds, and see the beautiful artwork and statues. Keep this one on your bucket list before CDI (Churchill) has this one-of a-kind venue holding $4,000 conditioned races. But I digress. – I’ve […]

I thought the card was going to be good this weekend at Woodbine but this has exceeded all of my wagering expectations. I won’t be jumping in the “Bet Mobile” and heading to the track. I am going to make all of my wagers in the morning and see the Bengals brawl with the Cleveland […]
