New Plays

I do have to say that I like the idea of the wager of playing which rider will ride the most winners on the B/C cards. This takes it to the player, and offers a new twist on a great weekend…

Players from around the globe will wager on this. It may take a few years to catch fire, but I bet it will do just fine. It kinda reminds of Vegas and the prop board during football season. I love to drop a few wagers, and have some fun. I think this will fit the same bill.

As Breeders’ Cup approaches, we will start narrowing the factors. Believe it or not, it is still just a bit early to make any final decisions. This wager got me thinking about that right out of the gate. We have heard about the number of horses certain stables will be bringing to the weekend. But, you have to wait until the draw before you make your final moves.

Right now, if you held me to the task, I would take $10 on: Garrett Gomez, Desormeaux, and Mike Smith…. It all depends on the Euros for me… I may find a bit of value on a European rider, if the price looks to right… But, one thing is for certain. The bet will take off…

Maybe next year, you will be able to do “Daily Doubles” with the riders. One day to the next… I guess as a player I like the idea of the new opportunity.
