Had some Win and Exacta tickets pay off, but nowhere near breakeven. Next time!

# After a scratch…

Time for Trouble was scratched in Race 1, so the WM picks are now 5, 4, 6.

# 2023 Breeders’ Cup Saturday

WagerMate likes…

I’ll make the same Win, Exacta, and Pick 3 bets as yesterday.

It’ll be great!

# 2023 Breeders’ Cup Friday

WagerMate sees it this way…

I’ll bet $2 to win on every WagerMate horse that has an ROI better than 25% — that’s 12 horses.

I’ll also place $1 exacta box bets on WagerMate’s top 3 picks in each race.

I’ll place Pick 3 bets in each race, using WagerMate’s top 2 picks.

Looks like I will be rooting for some longshots.

A simple 10 cent superfecta box of WagerMates’s picks would have turned $2.40 into $19.15 — but I didn’t do that. Hope you did!

# 2023 Belmont Stakes

WagerMate likes the favorites…

I’ll bet a superfecta of 2, 6 with 2, 3, 6 with All with All.

Best of luck!

# 2023 Preakness Results

A couple of the Win bets and Exactas paid off, but without a win by Mage, it was not a good day.

On to the Belmont Stakes….

# 2023 Preakness

These are WagerMate’s picks…

I’ll bet $2 to win on every WagerMate horse that has an ROI better than 25% — that’s 15 horses.

I’ll also place $1 exacta box bets on WagerMate’s top 3 picks in each race.

I’m going to accept WagerMate’s pick of Mage in the Preakness, but rather than place a Win bet, I’ll bet two Pick 3s: in Race 11 it will be All with All with Mage, and in Race 12 it will be All with Mage with All.

How can you lose?

# 2023 Kentucky Derby Results

If I was forced to pick a headline, I think I like the first one better:

- “WagerMate picks the Derby Winner”
- “WagerMate’s picks for the card lose money”

…but, both are true.

A couple of the bets paid off in a small way, but getting two-thirds of the Derby Trifecta didn’t generate any income.

# 2023 Kentucky Derby — After Scratches

The picture has changed. Here are WagerMate’s picks after the morning’s scratches…

I’ll use the same betting scheme as yesterday, except in the Derby I will box 3, 5, 8, 18, 21 in the Trifecta.

# 2023 Kentucky Derby

WagerMates’s pick for the card…

I’ll bet $2 to win on every WagerMate horse that has an ROI better than 25% — that’s 5 horses.

I’ll also place $1 exacta box bets on WagerMate’s top 3 picks in each race.

I’ll place Pick 3 bets in each race, using WagerMate’s top 2 picks.

In the Kentucky Derby, I’ll bet a trifecta using 8, 9, 18 with 5, 8, 9, 15 with 5, 8, 9, 15.

Have Fun!

# 2022 Breeders’ Cup Results

Thanks largely to one nice exacta ($196.20), WagerMate made a profit of well over $5 on the two days of racing at Keeneland. What an easy game!

I think if I actually did some handicapping to supplement WagerMate’s picks, I could have made a $10 profit. Maybe next year.

# 2022 Breeders’ Cup Saturday

We’ll use WagerMate’s picks…

…with the same Win, Exacta, and Pick 3 betting scheme we used yesterday.

How could we lose?

# 2022 Breeders’ Cup Friday

WagerMate’s picks for Friday…

I’ll bet $2 to win on every WagerMate horse that has an ROI better than 25% — that’s 17 horses.

I’ll also place $1 exacta box bets on WagerMate’s top 3 picks in each race.

I’ll place Pick 3 bets in each race, using WagerMate’s top 2 picks.

Good luck!

# 2022 Belmont Stakes Results

Mo Donegal won (as the favorite) and Skippylongstocking was third; hope you did better than I did!

# 2022 Belmont Stakes

WagerMate likes Creative Minister more than then crowd does…

I’ll bet 5 to win. I’ll box 2, 4, 5, and 6 in the exacta.

In the superfecta, I’ll go with 4 and 5 with 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 with 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 with 1, 2, 4, 5, 6.

Best of luck!

# 2022 Preakness Results

WagerMate picked the second, third, and fourth horses in order… but there isn’t a bet for that (maybe I should claim we nailed the Placefecta).

Simplification finished sixth, so none of my bets paid off.

# 2022 Preakness

WagerMate doesn’t like Epicenter as much as others do…

I’ll bet 1 to win. I’ll box 1, 2, and 8 in the exacta and trifecta.

For the superfecta, I’ll use 1, 2, 8 with 1, 2, 4, 8 with 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9 with All.

Enjoy!

# 2022 Kentucky Derby Results

WagerMate picked the wrong long shots — not Rich Strike (at 80-1).

# 2022 Kentucky Derby

WagerMate likes long shots…

I’ll bet $5 to Win on Tiz The Bomb.

I’ll bet an exacta with 8,9,13/All and another with 3,6,8,9,10,13/8,9,13.

I’ll need one of those long shots to do well.
