Winning Ponies Weekend

A week or so ago I wrote about a gambler having a plan and losing his bearings along the way. – That is in the past and I am re-dedicated to staying on target. I took off a little more time and wanted to come back strong. There was a bankroll of $400, and I feel good about my chances as I am going back to square one with the E-Z Win Forms. – I really don’t have the time to break down every race, plan my wagers and call the races. That starts sounding like a crazy day at work. – There is $400 burning a hole in my pocket and the best in racing was offered up. My plans have me making a three race place parlay on the top tier runner only. Now, this is not to say the other tier levels don’t offer up incredible value, but I am seeking a fast and tight selection with the best the site has to offer. So without further adieu, here is a glimpse of Super Saturday and Fall Stars Weekend.


Keeneland – Race #7 – The First Lady – 1 mile on the turf

#11 – Tepin = She is the top tier selection at (5-2) and has the services of Julien Leparoux for the red-hot Mark Casse barn. She owned the top Last Race Rating and Composite Ratings of 62, and her Turf Class Rating was the field best of 44.8. – Casse has been on fire and she looked the part. – The wager was $400 to place on #11. – She won and paid $4.00 to place. = The bankroll is at a sweet $800 ! – Great start !


Belmont Park – Race #11 – The Jockey Club Gold Cup – 1 1/4 on the main track

#6 – Tonalist = This son of Tapit sported the best Last Race Rating and Composite Ratings of 57, and I loved the Monster Workout handicapping icon, and the 45 day layoff showed me he was pointing toward a huge effort with John Velasquez (18%) and bullet work to cap off his readiness. = The wager was $800 to place, and he won and paid $2.50 to place.The bankroll has swelled to $1,000 ! – The plan is going right on target, and I’m not wasting time pouring through past performances and trying ten things at once.


Belmont Park – Race #12 – Mdn Sp Wt – Off the turf

#8 – Matt King Coal = He was the top tier selection, and I was a little hesitant to pull the trigger with a $1,000 place wager. So, I kept to the selection and kept my eye on the MTO runner with the services of Jose Ortiz for Linda Rice. He had the best LRR of 48, and my favorite handicapping icon “Monster Workout.” – It was time to play and I made a $500 place and show wager on #8.  – About five minutes later, the top tier selection finished second and paid $3.50 to place and $2.80 to show. = The bankroll stands at a crisp $1,575 ! – I turned off the race and flipped on a college football game. – I finished calling the races and felt pretty good about my $400 plan to bet three races with the top tier selection.


Greed did not play in, and I closed the day with a $1,175 profit. – Not bad following the guidance of the E-Z Win Forms, and my pals at work were rooting along watching how the day would turn out. – I think they liked the overall outcome, and a few started asking me about Winning Ponies. – It’s a good feeling when seasoned race track professionals who’ve seen about everything ask about a data provider who brings their “A” game everyday and every race. – I have my Breeders’ Cup bankroll, and the countdown in my head has begun. The plan worked out like magic, and sticking to your guns is a good feeling. Keeping your head and employing money management made this rainy weekend into a bright rainbow. – Can’t wait to the big weekend, and Wednesday I’m printing down my E-Z Win Forms for a trip to Keeneland for a day in the Lexington sunshine. – Be sure to stay abreast all month long for updates on the Breeders’ Cup runners, and how my Wednesday afternoon turns out. – I’m thinking about a 5 race place parlay betting small to add to the total. – Wish me luck !
