# Race 5 after Scratch

Updated my bets based on this…

# 2021 Breeders’ Cup Saturday

WagerMates’s Saturday picks (I’ve manually scratched any horse with a number over 14)…

I’ll bet the same way as yesterday, but add superfecta boxes for the 9 races where WagerMate shows 4 picks.

How can you lose?

# 2021 Breeders’ Cup Friday

WagerMate’s picks for the first day…

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, boxing WagerMate’s top 2 picks (A,B/A,B/A,B).

Have fun!

# 2021 Belmont Stakes Results

The finish order was 2, 4, 3, 6.

The good news is that means the superfecta bet was a winner. The bad news is that the $12 superfecta paid $6.07.

There’s never a long shot around when you need one.

# 2021 Belmont Stakes

WagerMate likes the four best horses…

None of them are good win bets.

I’ll bet an exacta with 2 and 3 over 1, 5, and 8.

For the superfecta, I’ll use 2,3,4,7/2,3,4,7/2,3,4,7/All.

I’ll also bet the Pick 3 starting with race 10: 5 & 10, 2 &3, and 1 & 3.

Good luck!

# 2021 Preakness Results

The horses finished 6, 5, 3, 2 — a good match to the WagerMate predictions.

With 13-1 Rombauer as the winner, the payouts were good. The $1 superfecta paid $1,025.50.

If you used WagerMate’s selections, and bet the minimum of $3 on the exacta, and the minimum of $2.40 on the superfecta, it turned your $5.40 into $102.55.

That was a fun race!

# 2021 Preakness

WagerMate makes some reasonable picks…

I’ll bet 5 over 2, 3, and 6 in the exacta.

I’ll also box WagerMate’s four choices in the superfecta.

Best of luck!

# 2021 Kentucky Derby Results

Don’t you hate it when your three horses bump into each other just out of the gate? None of them recovered from that mishap. Tough business.

# 2021 Kentucky Derby

WagerMate likes three reasonable horses…

But the Kentucky Derby tends to be an odd race, so this year, I’m going to bet it in an odd fashion. I’ll make two exacta wagers: 14,15,17/All and All/14,15,17.

I’ll be hoping for an unpopular horse to come in first or second.

# WagerMate 4.1

Just in time for the Kentucky Derby, Version 4.1 of WagerMate has been released.

The new version has an improved Jockey Variant and an updated Daily Track Variant.

How can you lose?

# 2020 Breeders’ Cup Results

I blame the pandemic for those picks.

# 2020 Breeders’ Cup Saturday

WagerMate likes a mix of favorites and long shots today…

I’ll place $2 win bets on every horse that WagerMate says has an ROI over 25% and I’ll also place $1 exacta box bets on the top 3 picks in each race.

# 2020 Breeders’ Cup Friday

WagerMate’s picks for Friday…

I’ll place $2 win bets on every horse that WagerMate says has an ROI over 25% — that’s 7 horses on Friday.

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

Best of Luck!

# 2020 Preakness Results

Not even close on the superfecta.

# 2020 Preakness

WagerMate goes for long shots again…

Let’s make the bet simple: a super box of 2, 5, 7, 8, and 9.

# 2020 Derby Results

Ummm, well, the ROI is easy to calculate; zero.

The only thing WagerMate got right: doubting Tiz The Law.

# 2020 Derby Late Scratch

I’m using 8 in place of 10.

# 2020 Derby — after scratches

After a couple of scratches, WagerMate is willing to admit that Tiz the Law has a chance…

I’ll place win bets on 2 and 12.

I’ll use Tiz the Law in the rest of my bets.

I’ll bet the exacta of 16, 17, 18 over 2, 10, 12.

I’ll bet a trifecta of 16, 17, 18 over 2, 10, 12, 16 over 2, 10, 12, 16.

My superfecta bet will be 16, 17, 18 over 2, 10, 12, 16, 17, 18 over 2, 10, 12, 16, 17, 18 over 2, 10, 12, 16, 17, 18.

Have fun!

# 2020 Kentucky Derby

WagerMate refuses to love Tiz the Law…

I’ll place win bets on 2 and 12.

I’ll use Tiz the Law in the rest of my bets.

I’ll bet the exacta of 17 over 2, 6, 10, 12.

I’ll bet a trifecta of 17 over 2, 6, 10, 12, 16 over 2, 6, 10, 12, 16.

My superfecta bet will be 17 over 2, 6, 10, 12, 16, 18 over 2, 6, 10, 12, 16, 18 over 2, 6, 10, 12, 16, 18.

Enjoy!
