Day 28 (Travers Day) Recap At Saratoga — Not A Complete Washout (8/29)

Aug 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

So Travers day has come and gone and Mother Nature tried to rain on our parade and only managed to knock a few races off the turf.  The fields were still competitive and it was a good day to try and make some money when all was said and done.

So my buddy Scott Rothbort and I decided just to play my most profitable bet at the meeting and bet $5 exacta boxes in all races where I listed 3 horses.  It was a disaster and we lost every bet — $150 in all.  So why wasn’t Travers Day a complete washout?  Well, if you played my other profitable bets ($1 doubles and $1 pick 3′s) on all races, along with the exacta boxes, you made a few dollars.  I listed 7 winners, only two on top, and got hot in races 5, 6 and 7 (including a $142 double and $493 pick 3), so you made enough gains overall on both those bets to overcome the exacta losses.  I hope you stuck to the plan and made some money.
