Aqueduct is awful, with short fields and Yonkers-esque payouts, so making my first meet long foray at Tampa. Full fields, great turf action, and a handful of sharpsters.....Will post here. Hopefully we can scrape out some long ones:

Race 8
$20 Win #8 Cantcatchchanneled 8-1
Trainer Bradley is definitely a sneaky f$(k, and is hitting at around 50% off these long layoffs. Good ROI as well, so appears to be under the radar with this move. Hits 30% claimers, to boot.

Good luck.

I'll try this one rd, think I will get into Tam hate  GP I refuse to bet there. Tam has good field sizes might give it a whirl this meet.

How about FAIRGROUNDS?

INTERVIEWER: Would you say that you write your music for the man on the street?

SID VICIOUS: No, I've met the man on the street, he's a cunt.

Played every race at Tampa last weekend since I was in Vegas and did pretty good...three things to keep in mind

1. It’s pretty chalky for first place but a lot of bombs finish in the money

2. Front-runners/speed types do well...don’t see a lot of late closers here very often

3. Look for horses that have run well at Tampa previously

Does Tampa still have one of the biggest takeouts in the country?

Louisiana racing is a tough nut to crack. I’d be so far behind the curve that I’d have to do too much losing just to get an idea of who’s sharp and who to stay away from. Have a puncher’s chance at Tampa as I’m familiar with a handful of trainers there.

Sticking with Bradley today. Based on his recent history here, he’s a guy I want to follow all meet:

Race 3
$20 Win #7 Mikebravozerothree 6-1
$1 Pick Three 7/ALL/3
Bradley has a robust ROI in maiden claimers and dirt sprints here. Hoping that trend continues. First Lasix should help.

Race 5
$20 Win #3 Yahtzee Queen 6-1
More juicy ROI here for Bradley. This time in Allowance races and Turf routes. The guy is really plus ROI in just about every category, yet doesn’t get bet.

Good luck, folks!

0-1, -$20

do you like it there?

 

i used to spend a lot of time in the tampa area, enjoyed going to derby lane (ocean's eleven) and jai alai more than horse racing

 

30 minutes between races can be an eternity if you're not betting other tracks

Love it here, so far. I have an 8 year old son, so there’s a ton of things here for him to do, compared to Winter in NY. Sanford Orlando Kennel Club is a short ride away for simulcast action. Plus everything here is dirt cheap compared to NY.

They increased limits

 

But in the beginning one could only buyin for $100 on NO LIMIT games, in those times it was just an ALLIN shootout until stacks were built.

The angle was simply playing NO LIMIT against bad players, all in all, not worth the time,........ but it killed 3-4 hours daily, was able to get some PPH accounts to bet into, and consistently made a few bucks playing..........................one PPH was a gravy train for soccer, with 2k limits.

The Florida Pari-mutual pools were manipulated by a couple longtime advantage gamblers I've known well since the early 90's...............they made a KILLING!
