Man, I can't believe how stupid I can be sometimes.
I turned a $50 bitcoin deposit at Dimes into a few hundred betting sports so I figure I'd give the horses a try (again).
So I buy a Gulfstream past performances form online and login to the 5Dimes racebook.
I played a $42 pick 5 ticket at Gulfstream Park West Wednesday: 2 X 2 X 3 X 7 X 2 = $168 combinations at 25 cents each, races 4-8.
I get the 1st 3 winners, no heavy favorites and one 9-1 shot that beat a 3/5 shot. In the 5th race I have 7 of 9 horses. Why I didn't just spend the extra $12 and take the all I'll never know but I left out two horses in the 7th race, the #1 & #2. Of course the #1 horse wins and kills my tickets. Of course I have the next winner so I get the consolation of $17 7 times. Big deal. If I use an all in the 7th as I should have I cash over $2000. For a $50 bet.
Here is the awful truth:
