Day 29 Recap At Saratoga — A Reversal Of Form And Fortune (8/30)

Aug 31st, 2009 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Just like horses, handicappers can have dramatic form reversals which can lead the way back to profitability.  After starting out the week very cold, I got hot very quickly on Sunday’s card.  No Travers hangover for me.  After not even being close in races 1 and 2, I listed winners in 8 of the next 9 races, including 5 on top, and had a flat bet profit of $42.20!  From races 3-8, I listed 5 doubles, 4 pick 3′s, 1 exacta box and 1 cold exacta!  Prices in the pick 3′s ranged from $83 to $374 — some nice payoffs due to listing a 10-1 shot in race 4.

After being beaten a nose in race 9 which broke the winning streak, I came back with a cold late double for $155, a cold exacta in race 11 for $147 which included a $35 horse on top!  The pick 6 came back over $36,000 and I was a nose away from listing my second pick 6 of the meet.  On a day like this, I guy can dream, but I’m only one bad day away from a nightmare!
