Betting the Ponies
Do Not Bet Trifectas
I do not bet trifectas. If only one horse is a stand-out, I’ll spread my bets over win and place. If I like a horse to win, I sure think he’ll place. Watching the tote board allows me to spread my bets, so as to take advantage of the odds.
I will bet less win and more place on a 5-1 or higher horse. If my choice is anywhere from 4-5 to 9-2, my bulk of the bet will be on the win, with the place as a backup. When a horse drops under 4-5, I pass, as the value of the bet has decreased.
If I lose on that sixth race, I revert to the $40 predetermined amount on the next race.
Is there a need for money management at the races? Is there a need for water in the desert?
