This Saturday Gulfstream Park is going to host a trio of stakes races that feature some top talent.

In the Donn Handicap, Invasor is returning to defend his Horse of the Year honors.  If Premium Tap  is entered, he will provide some competition based on his last races of 2006 but my pick will be Invasor. 

In the Holy Bull Stakes featuring 3 year olds, my early Kentucky Derby favorite, Nobiz Like Showbiz looks to mow down the competition in his first prep for the mint julep contest.  His second fastest workout time of the day at five furlongs this weekend indicates he's ready to run.  My Best Bet of the Day.

In the Canadian Turf Classic, Miesque's Approval appears to be the horse to beat.  But if English Channel is entered, expect some major competition.  English Channel beat the top one by 3/4 length in this same race last year and is being prepped for the Dubai Sheema Classic on March 29th.  He also boasts a very consistent record.  The nod goes to English Channel among these two.

It should be an exciting race card.

Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

    Just checked the entries for tomorrow's races.  Premium Tap and English Channel are not racing, making the choices clear.

    Gulfstream Park 2/3

    6th race:  # 8 Miesque's Approval (6-5)

    7th race:  # 8 Nobiz Like Showbiz (8-5)

    9th race:  # 1 Invasor (6-5)

    Good luck to the pony players in the house!

      I've mentioned before on this site that I was a horse player for 20 years before I got into the pick 3.  In fact I used to have a horse racing website.  The pick 3 hasn't been treating me too well the last few years so maybe it's time to get back into the ponies. 

      Horse racing has a couple advantages over the lottery...it is not random and the state only takes 17-18% of the win-place-show betting pool as opposed to the 50% that the lottery takes.

      Betting increments for the races posted above will be 1-3-6.  That is, $2 to win, $6 to place and $12 to show.   My goal for the year is at least a 20% profit.  Payouts will be based on official track payouts.

      I know there's not many horse racing fans on this site, but that's cool.  I'm doing it for myself and anyone else that wants to tag along.

      Thanks to Todd for the forum to do this.  Thumbs Up

        Thanks Rick for sharing the Gulf Stream 'best bets' for 2/3 and interesting that you called two out of the three chalky races above. I just saw the message so I wasn't on them this time but there is always the next time.

        When you had your racing web site what was your average ROI? 

        Wouldn't you one love to get in the 'Good Vibes' book (AKA Let It Ride- movie) frame of mind ? Smile

         

        Best Wishes for continued success!

          Your odds at horse racing is a lot better then the odds in lottery..In fact lottery is the worst odds at any gambling......

            Eddessaknight,

            Sorry it took so long to get back to you...didn't catch your response till now.

            I can't remember my ROI from that time...that was about 8 years ago and I was using different methods all the time.  My best win was a $74 win from River Downs.

            These picks will all be "chalky" because I'm playing the horse not the horses, if you know what I mean.

             

            Tiggs...you are so right about the odds!

                Eddessaknight, that was for something different I was doing.  But I would have done better money-wise to bet win only.

                Now I'm checking out how my top 4 do in the gimmicks and a spot play exacta method.  My goal is to have my top 4 win a superfecta straight.

                I've transferred my daily post to my blog.  Today's race (2/27) is listed there. 

                Thanks for your interest!  I knew there were other horse players here.
