Yet another busy day working on the brochure. But I’ve just made a PDF of the final product (as far as formatting is concerned) and sent it to the guys who wrote it. Now they will read it one last time and on Monday morning will give me last minute edits and then we’ll ship it off to the printer. I’ll be happy to see this thing leave my hands. And I’ll feel quite accomplished.
Tomorrow is Preakness Stakes and now that I’m done with the brochure I plan on stepping over to OTB to place my bets. Having read articles about folks who won lots of $$ just buy betting randomly, I’ve opted to do the same thing.
No studying (haven’t had time), no tricks. I just randomly selected a bunch of number combinations for Exacta bets and plan on putting down $1 bets on all of them (if the OTB will only allow $2 bets then I’ll randomly pick half of my combinations and bet on those). Only things to note: Giacomo, the Derby winner, is at post number 13. Malibu Moonshine, a horse whose name I like, is post number 1.
Here are my combinations:
That’s $32 worth of bets, about the normal amount I bet. I’ve got just as good a chance as ever before to win some money, and on Exacta bets you can win more than on a regular win/place/show bet (if you recall, the $2 Exacta bet for Kentucky Derby paid almost $10K). So even if I bet $1 and a low-odds horse combination comes in, I’m presuming I could still win $500 or something like that.
