09July Play Of The Day

Belmont Race 3

Dig this now. I have never knowingly posted chalk as my play of the day as I focus on value with these picks. However Digger in Race 3 at Belmont look infallible. Those might be the famous last words of a capper but I looked at this heat from every angle and the only thing that could beat him is racing luck. He will not add much to my total but he may improve my strike rate.

That was as easy as it gets in this game. Digger broke first, set the pace and improved his position. Short price at $3.40 but a solid single in all wagers.

Picking the chalk in a four horse race? That is your play of the Day?
Gee, I guess we should be upset you did not give us the "Exacta Play of the Day" that paid a whopping $6.60.

Hopefully you did not already spend your $1.40 of net proceeds.

C'mon Anonymous, sometimes a smart call on a legitimate favorite is the play of the day. Barring any freaky incidents or wild shenanigans, Digger was an absolute standout dropping to $30K with those connections, that work pattern, his back class -- and he was even more so when three scratched out. You don't often get locks in this game, but when you do, you should try to figure out how best to play them -- and if you can't do that, then don't knock the people who can.

Thanks Jessica. Digger was a clear standout and a investment quality wager. We have all sorts of picks, bombs, value and can't miss locks. This one was from the can't miss file.

Rather than breaking my chops if anonymous was a little craftier he/she/it could have keyed Digger in the $3,146 pick 4.

As a anonymous troll posting on this blog you are not privy to my personal wagers. While the winners winners listed here show a flat bet profit never forget that they are used as keys in the exotic pools. If free winners are not enough to resolve your losing condition you may require additional counsel.

If the empty feeling about parimutuel failures is driving you to troll on-line, perhaps a personal power cap seminar would help take you from the red to the black. It would certainly be more constructive that trolling blogs anonymously with nasty negative comments. If you would like to join the winners and would like a private wagering seminar that is available for a fee, inquire within.
