    I’m playing a lot of gulfstream park lately and noticed fanduel has a free contest today. I’ll share my betting card and my picks/advice for FD for those interested. I hope I don’t miss Any races but that’s possible. Also I’ve been playin ponies for years but I’m not a pro so following isn’t advised, this is for entertainment.

    I’m not posting the amount I wager, but I keep my wagers the same for all my standard bets. For this post, and to track progress, my standard wager will be labeled as $2 each, even though that’s not the amount I’m watering.

    Please post below if anyone has interest in these horses today or future weeks. Does anyone else like to play the Ponies? Does anyone play FD at gulfstream park? And post below if you don’t play these games but still want to see how I do.

    Race 1:
    The favorite #9 scratched which leaves things Wide open.

    Win on the 1 horse
    Win place show on the 11 horse

    I like the 1 or 11 horses best in FD at just $2 each.

    I will try to spell this out but please ask if my terms aren’t clear.

  • Mitchstein

    Race 1 couldn’t have gone worse.
    Total -8

    Race 2:
    Exacta 3-1
    Exacta 3-8
    Exacta 3-9

    Use horse 3 in FD. Costs $3 but this the most likely winner

  • Mitchstein

    Race 2 (late add):
    Daily double races 2 &3:
    3 (race 2) & 4 (race 3)
    3 (race 2) & 5 (race 3)

  • Mitchstein

    Still losing. I hope people aren’t yet following.

    Race 3:
    Win place show 1 horse
    Exacta box 1-3
    Exacta box 1-4
    Exacta box 1-5

    In FD, I like the 5 over the 4 but both are good if you have $3. The 3 is good at $2 and that’s where it’s smart to go, the higher risk higher upside is the 1 horse at $1

  • Mitchstein

    Risked $18 on race 3 to win $448.40.

    The 1 horse was the biggest underdog in the entire race and I was all over it. Huge upset makes for a huge payday! It’s time to play with house money the rest of the day!

  • Mitchstein

    Fair warning, I now have a bottle of bourbon next to me after that huge upset victory. I will be sticking to my notes for the day, because this isn’t a one-day game.

    Total +412.40

    Race 4:
    Win place on 2 horse.

    I like the 2 horse in FD for $2

  • Mitchstein

    Total +408.40

    Race 6:
    This 6th race is very wide open. Almost anyone running has a chance to win.

    Win on 13 horse
    Win place show on 6 horse
    Exacta box 6 & 13

    The 13 horse is $2 and the 6 horse is $1 on FD, choose between those 2.

  • Mitchstein

    Race 7:
    I don’t like much of anything here.

    Spending $1 on horse 1 is my FD play and also
    Show on horse 1

  • Mitchstein

    The 1 was a big underdog in the last race and it showed, im glad I kept the card small.

    Race 8:
    Daily Doubles below (first horse is for race 8 and second horse is for race 9)
    1 & 4
    1 & 5
    7 & 4
    7 & 5
    9 & 4
    9 & 5

    The 1 and 7 horses both cost $3 on FD and I like the 1 more than the 7, this is a good spot to spend the money. At $2 though, the 9 is great if you cannot afford them $3

  • Mitchstein

    Race 9:
    Two daily doubles are still alive after the 7 horse won race 8. If the 4 or 5 horse win race 9, the daily double hits. Nothing else will be added to the card.

    I like the 4 more than the 5, but they each cost only $2 on FD so Id look no further and choose between those two.

  • Mitchstein

    The 9 horse beats the 5 horse which means the daily double loses.

    Race 10:
    7 horse to win
    Daily double: 7 horse & 10 horse (race 11)

    this is the race to spend $3 on the 7 horse but $2 on the 6 horse is worthy too if you’re short on cash.

  • Mitchstein

    Race 11:
    The 10 horse to win
    Exacta box 10 & 14

    The 14 is the better FD play at $2, but i can’t argue spending $3 on the 10.

  • Mitchstein

    Race 12:
    Win Place show On 9 horse

    $2 for the 9 on FD is ideal but $3 on the 2 is great if you have extra money

  • Mitchstein

    Race 13:
    4 to win
    Exacta 4 & 2
    Exacta 4 & 3
    Exacta box 4 & 9

    Finishing FD today strong with the 4

  • Mitchstein

    What a day.
    I made a Huge profit today!!!
    Surprisingly I also had quite a few close misses, which means this day was almost quite a lot more profitable. And that’s hard to imagine. I doubt anyone followed along but thanks if you did. I doubt I’ll do this again because there appears to be a lack of interest which is understandable. Anyone following and only placing $2 bets would have made a little under $400, which is awesome for a single afternoon at the track.
    And I also won some free change in the FD contest. The bottle I started earlier is getting quite low. Have a good night

  • yisman

    nice win

    I saw this too late to tail

    if you do it again, I’ll tail your bets

  • gje627

    Dude … I followed along all day !!!

    The singular +1 above for the big win earlier? … That was me. :)

    Congrats on a great day and thanks for the commentary ….

    And keep it up !!! …. Please.

    You’ve got me wanting to play the horses !!! :)

  • Jesoral

    Wish I saw this earlier! Thank you for doing it. Good job today

    I didn’t post the 5th race by accident, so I didn’t count it in my total here. It figures because I had the winner in that.
    I bet the 2 and the 6 to Win Place show. It finishes 6-9-2. The 5th turned a small profit of +5.40, and it didn’t bother me that I forgot to post it because I didn’t know anyone was following. Now that I know, I’m sorry I forgot to make the post, and hopefully I only forget to post losers next time.
    Playing the horses is dangerous so I hope I didn’t fire up a bad habit. But it’s just about all the gambling action I have access to, so I’ve spent my free time researching, watching and fortunately winning. I’m glad you caught me on a great day and you won big too. Do you have a favorite track?

    I’m glad to see some interest, and I’ll absolutely be posting more now that I know there are requests. Tomorrow may or may not happen, but keep an eye out. Otherwise mid or late next week is most likely. Do you have a favorite track?

    No worries … I imagine I play a lot bigger money elsewhere ….

    Favorite track?

    Martinsville Speedway … but mostly any local high-banked dirt track. :)

    …..

    As you can tell ….

    I know absolutely nothing about horses …. :)

    Gulfstream Park

  • Moszman

    Keeneland, Saratoga, Del Mar, and Belmont is where most of my money goes. Been playing a few pick 4/5’s at Oaklawn and Gulfstream lately but haven’t hit yet. Did take first the first week fd did the free horse thing and cashed again yesterday. Looking at Gulfstream today to play some but waiting for scratches.

  • gje627

    FYI.

    Per ESPNBettor turns 50-cent Pick 5 into more than $500K at Gulfstream yesterday.
