10 Cent Superfectas
Posted 18 July 2008 - 07:20 PM
for the last month or so i've been betting $2.90 on the belmont superfecta races--the 9th & sometimes the 4th & 7th--with 50 cents straight & 2.40 to box it--with mixed results--often i hit 3 of the 4--anyway, calder also takes 10 cent superfectas & i noticed the rail has been fast there & last month a coupla 4321 races came in, so when i get the form if i like 2 or 3 of the inside horses, i've been putting a dime on 4321---today i bet the 5th & 9th at calder & the 5th sure enough came in 4321 & paid $68.01 to the dime--ha--the 9th was 2341 & paid 43.21 to the dime, but i dint box it.

what was sorta funnier was that i also hit a triple straight there in the 2nd for the sad sum of 6.10/buck & hit an exacta in the 7th which paid all of 2.70 to my 2 buck box--lol--neverthesless i am doing much better betting calder than the spa.

on mondays, wednesdays & thursdays i bet saratoga off the daily nooz page.
i try to keep my weekday bets under $30, so i boxed one superfecta for $2.50 & played the 5 others straight for 10 cents.
sure enuf--the 4th today had the french filly ardnavagh on the grass--so i bet her $2 straight & put 10 cents on 4512. ard wuz 4, the 2nd fave was 5 & the rail has been fast. the 4 was favored, the 5 & 1 were liked & the 2 was 45-1. sooooooooooo the 4 sure enuf wins, but the fuckin 2 dont know she shud be 4th & noses the 5 for 2nd. & the 1 runs 4th. so, instead of 4512 it comes out 4251 & the 4 pays 4.90, so i wins two eighty on the race. of course (wudda,cudda,shudda) the 10 cent box paid $116.85.
there are tooo many bets to cover at ratasoga what with the rollin double & pick3s--& to box all the superfectas adds like another 20 bucks to my daily losings, so fuck it. also, now that i look at it, i had the 678 race pick3, but dint play it--it paid 33.75 to the buck.ha--johnny velasquez had a good day & i ended up like 5 bucks ahead--whoopty dam do. sadderday is de travers.

today was travers day, with 12 races at ratasoga, so i bet fairly heavily.
pennington was entered in the 7th, but was the 15 & got scratched. now the 2 outside horses left (the 14 & 13) came in 1-2 & the 14 (slambino) paid like 179 to win & the 13 was long too & the 8 who came in 3rd was long too so the triple is over 100K & the superfecta is listed as 1.5mil. I dont think anyone had it but someone had the dime superfecta (not me) & it paid $76,159.40. no shit 76K to the dime.
anyway i lost the 1st 10 races cold & was down 80 bucks going into the travers but hope springs eternal & the best california horse in the race--colonel john, who won the california derby this year, won it--the photo showed that mambo in seattle's hoof was over the line first, but colonel john had the nose-- & i had him in the late double with another california horse (iron gate) who was 9-1 & sure enuf he won too & the double paid 88 to the buck so i ended up the day like 30 bucks up--not all that impressive, but it was fun--about equal to that of the jetsos beating the jints.

in the 6th, a 1 mile maiden claimer, i had lexington ave. on top (a frankel horse--had been favorite last time in 47K race & came in 7th--today was entered in 21K race). noone showed a 1:03b work, so i ranked the others by average winning per start & put $2.90 on 4 10 8 7. I also had the 2 3 exacta boxed (the one was scratched) & the 4 10 exacta too. well, the 2 is 32-1 & runs off on the lead so i'm looking for the 3 & the 3 is far back & the race is long (the 2nd & 3rd races were 6 furlongs) & the 2 tires & the 4 & 10 come up--so i figure i had the exacta, sorty chalky, but then the 8 & 7 were next so i hit the super straight for a mighty 60 cents & got back $137.40 for it.
i tend to do best in january--not many exotic shippers into aqueduct's inner track & the horses that winter here run against each other a bunch & when it rains the rail is fast. so i'll be boxing the 2 inside horses in all 6 furlong races here automatically until the track dries out.

also at gulfstream in the 4th--2 horses in a maiden race showed 1:03b works so i boxed them & they came in with the exacta paying 86.60 to the buck.
tomorrow there a re a bunch of good races with derby hopefuls specifically old fashioned in the rebel at oaklawn, friesan fire in the louisiana derby at the fair grounds & pioneerof the nile in the san felipe stakes at santa anita.

i've been playing gulfstream & keeneland too & i've been beating gulfstream--yesterday i had a horse pay $68.90 to the buck to win in the 3rd (it was a turf race & he had the highest average winnings per turf start--i dont know why it went off at 67-1)& i won the 4th too & holy shit the 3-4 double was like $2000, but i dint play it--ha, i played the 4th 5th double cause there was a 1:03bg horse in the 5th, but he came in 2nd--what the fuck i cant play every bet at every track--keeneland i cant beat at all--blame it on the polyturf crap--but gulfstream i do good at--i started playing the florida tracks regularly when i noticed a bunch of 4321 superfectas come in at calder--& today there was a 4321 superfecta at gulfstream that paid like 2 grand, but i dint have it--but i did have the 9th today--a maiden race where noone showed a 1:03 work so i played it straight by average earnings per start & sure enough it came out straight & added up to $179. not bad, hitting 2 of 4 superfectas played. first time i ever hit 2 in the same day--i wudda made more playing them straight for a buck rather than boxing them for a dime & playing 50 cents straight--where i end up with 60 cents on it when i hit it straight.
some decent races tomorrow--most at keeneland tho--& thats a lost cause--the trainer of my favorite ky jelly derby horse--i want revenge--is in trouble for giving one of his aqueduct horses an illegal drug, some sort of anti congestion horsey advair-like thing.

in the 5th, i boxed the 7246 for 10 cents & put put 50 cents on it straight & another 60 cents on the 72 with the 468 boxed. it came out 6745 so i lost $3.50 on it.
the 6th was a flat out killer--it was a nys race on grass--i had the johnny velasquez horse boxed twice with the prado horse & they went off at 28-1 & 12-1 & i had the prado horse on top to win & in doubles & pick3s & he had the lead on the turn & looked good when the velasquez horse came flying & took the win (paying 58.10) but the favorite was on his heels & got prado in the last two jumps--oh well lost like a $600 exacta---johnny v now definitely my favorite jockey over prado.
but i did have the double with the johnny v horse & missile in the 7th & missile led the whole way & the double was $99 to the buck so i was up. now the 7th was like the worst race ever with only 2 possible winners & 2 other who could run at all & i had 20 cents on the superfecta with missile & the 10 horse over the 4 & 5 boxed--all of a 20 cent bet & it came in & paid all of $3.57 to the dime---whoopie.
but in the 10th, another nys grass race, i had the 6 12 2 1 boxed for a dime & 50 cents straight & it came in 12 1 2 6 & paid $6590 which was $329.50 for me.

anyway today i'm doin ok again at belmont & win the 7th & 8th & need da' tara (who won the belmont a year back & hasnt won since) to take the feature & i'd get around 200 from the pick3 but tizway (one of 3 tiznow horses in the race) takes him clean. ok. now there were 6 superfectas at belmont today & i bet $2.90 on each of them--10 cent box & 50 cents straight & hit the 6th---holy moley it paid $4.22--a big $1.33 win for me & then in the next race i hit it again & this time it pays $10.70--whoopee. anyway after da tara got beat i wasnt watching the last race too closely, it was a maiden grass race so i had bet it by average money won per start on grass & prado had the best horse but it got scratched & i put the next 4 into the superfecta. the favorite the 3 was on top with the 8 a long shot 2nd--anyway the 8 wins the race & the 3 aint around--i boxed the 38 exacta so if the fuckin 3 wudda made 2nd id've done well, but wait i had 3 8 11 4 for the superfecta & it came in 8 4 11 3 aha & was long & paid $234.85 to the dime.
betting maiden races by average earnings per start is not a bad move--in today's calder last race--a lousy maiden one--one horse showed a 1:03b work so i put him on top & of all the other horse 2 horses averaged 2 grand a start & a fourth had won $200 & the others zip so i played a buck triple with the 1:03 horse on top of the 2 2 grand ones & it came in, but sideways & paid like a grand which i dint get--the thing is is that the $200 horse came in 4th & the dime superfecta was aroun $150.
the last 2 mondays i've won & its sorta fun watching the otb channel cause they run philly & delaware (both of which i can bet a buck on) & thistledown & colonial & finger lakes in fast rotation--so i got the form & ll play tomorrow.

anyway lately i've been doing well at aqueduct--i hit 2 superfectas wednesday & 2 again yesterday--none of them paid more than $30 to the dime but still its sorta fun to hit the allbeit boxed 10 cent superfectas 2 races in a row--anyway i like betting maiden races the most--especially maidens breezing 5f in 1:03 & if none show that i bet them by money won per average start & today the 2nd at aqueduct was a maiden & i boxed the top 3 horses for $1 quinellas & low & behold i won it & got back $2.45 for my $3. LOL then in the 3rd i hit the triple clean & got all of $9.90 to the buck & like the jets i was on a minor roll & the 4th was a maiden race with 2 horses showing a !:03b work & i boxed those with the 2 top money winners & the longest of the 4---Even Frisky--with an apprentice J. Musarro whom i have never heard of comes tearing 5 wide down the stretch to just nose Citizen Balley at the wire & sure enough i had a boxed superfecta which paid $115.60 to the dime. also i had a win bet on the Frisky horse & it paid $44.25 to the buck. way to go rich.
also i generally do well at the gulfstream meet & in the 7th there--a maiden special weight--i had the j velasquez horse on top of two 1:03b maidens & a horse who beat one of them in the previous race & sure enuf the sunnovabitch came in & paid a lucky $70.77 to the dime. sonofabitch if the damn 7 wudda held off the 11 id'ahad it straight & gotten 420 outof the race, but he dint. anyway, like the jets im sorta on a roll now & will get the sadderday & sunnyday forms tomorrow.

theres always a race or 2 that are totally unfigurable--last week i had a horse on the lead in the last race who went down with 2 broken legs on the turn & took out 3 other horses too. today i won the 4th, 5th 6th & 8th--& in the 7th had dominguez on a pletcher horse with the highest average winnings per start in a 5 horse field at odds-on who got to the lead & then just pulled up. stopped cold.
the inside has still been strong & in the race where dominguez pulled up as the favorite, the triple came out 123 & paid $142.50
this weekend is the 1st derby futures tranche--boys at toscanova aint in it no mo--which leaves uncle mo as the heavy chalk--tho historically the field is usually made the chalk in the 1st tranche.
