We managed three wins on the Saturday card at Turfway Park, and we did chip in with four exactas that returned $29.80, $32.00, $11.20 and $15.80 for each $1 played.

But?

But. But. But.

We missed out on the mammoth exacta that returned nearly $900 for a $2 play when we stopped our key just one horse short. Oh, man. That hurts just a tad.

But?

We are doing OK to start the new year and we look forward to bouncing back when racing returns this week.

I didn’t publish my Saturday picks at Santa Anita. But I did a private event at the LTS for some fine friends and handicapped for them. Here is how I did at “The Great Race Place:”

Had 4 winners out of the 9 races, and won with 2 of 3 “Key Plays of the Day.” Also hit 6 of 9 exactas that returned the likes of $6.70, $10.50, $39.90, $13.00, $16.30 and $3.80 for each $1 played.

Nice day. Cashed some tickets. Made a little money.

See you later this week.
