ITS A LONG WAY HOME EVEN WITH A CHECK
$3200 PURSE AT 5% $160 MINUS $25 FOR DRIVER= $135 LASIX $15= $120 PADDOCK $50= $70 SHIPPING $50 =$20
So you finish 5th and you get 20 dollars and maybe your trainer get 30 dollars a day in Illinois .
In turn you GOT A CHECK ON RACE DAY AND LOST 10 DOLLARS
Even if the horses wins the race by the end of the month with all the bills you won't make much money
aint dat da truth
pay attention sulkyfrommarssellingdimebags...this will be your story in a few months. bail when you first think you're gonna lose more than expected because at that point you havent lost it ALL yet
and trust those instincts, you may throw a few grand down the commode (initial investment) but think of all the $ your gonna save by not having that bill next month, and the month after, and the month after that.
and btw: keep an eye out for your nags qualifiers/races because VIP doesnt let the owners know jack squat about their investments either. only emails you get from them are pushing more stock
quite the operation they got going on there
....let me tell you bout a filly that made it to her SS FINALS
2 years in a row and still couldnt turn any sort of proffit....100% fact.
