OK,a new betting year is nearing. Are you ready to kick butt or will you go back to your losing ways. horse players, what is your most profitable method of wagering, straight bets, gimmicks parlays? Do you have a plan of attack when making your bets or do you wager until your busted? With the advent of simulcasting, patience becomes extremley important. Can you concentrate on only one or two tracks, if you can't, your probably burning up your money.Is racing a way to kill time for you or are you trying to make this a business. You are after all a sole proprieter trying to make a PROFIT. I challenge you handicappers to keep dailey records to see where your money goes and what type wagering is killing you.Of course this takes time and we players don't like to see how we're failing. I hope all TB have a outstanding year. I will post my bets, expenses etc. Lets see if I can make a profit or go out of business. I'm not a big better. a 50$ bet would be large and I don't play alls in gimmicks. Anyone care to join me in keeping track on their bets? WELCOME

I don't bet everyday, but I think it would be fun to get a little friendly competition going among you real horsepolayers.  Someone more computer capable could surely set up some kind of format. Kiss

I already do.  I have a big spreadsheet that tracks a whole bunch of things.  I use a line graph to chart the year's overall progress.  Unfortunately, it looks like a ski hill with the skier heading down it. Have a Happy Betting New Year!

Heres this clockers plan for 2006.

1. well I already eliminated the one unprofitable bet from my betting
this year namely place wagering. That was my only category of losing bets
for 2005 and has been eliminated.

2. Concentrate on what I do best.Dirt Sprint MSW, dirt Sprints high class races. Turf routing. and oh yes. The triple crown and its prep races.

No more cheapie claiming routes for me. I can't figure them out for the life of me.

3. My NJbets card already logs in each bet I make (both on the net and Live racing) so thats done.

Clockerter,please explain the stoppage of place betting. Were you just betting horses to place and not to win? I back up everything, keeps me in the game sometimes.

I stopped betting place becuase it was simply unprofitable. I was making 2.21 on win bets
but my ROI on place bets was 1.90.

I don't like to lose money so I simply stopped betting to place. Now I know I kills me when a 20-1 runs second and pays 19.00 to place. I just repeat to myself. "this type of bet is a loser over the long run"

If you bet a hoss becuase you believe he is best you should get more wins than places. I know I did.

Handicapped today's races at Beulah and made 2 bets both win

 race 1- 2 to win on the 8 horse Batten, only raced 3 times and had good excuses the 1st 2 times he ran. Won 15.00

 race 5-  5 to win on the 11 horse Skip Irish. Didn't like his last 3 races but he was coming off a layoff and I was hoping he would go back to his Fairgrounds form. He came in next to last. Lost 5.00

I am ahead today by 8.00

Big C, since winners come so seldom for you, maybe the IRB can come up with bets for 4th of 5th place.

Big C howls to the masses:

Sorry, you must be speaking to someone else.

Quote

Win bets, either individual or serially.

Quote
Do you have a plan of attack when making your bets or do you wager until your busted?


If the situation arises when there is an overlay with a sufficient figure edge, hammer the crap out of it.

Quote
I will post my bets, expenses etc

And I thought JF was wasting bandwidth...

Quote

You want me to join you to keep track of my bets?  No thanks.
