Dear ValueCapper and Friend,
It’s time for the 141st running of the Preakness Stakes, to be run this Saturday, May 21, 2016 at Pimlico.
I’ve made a video for you analyzing the race as well as some races on the Pimlico undercard.
Before we get to that, I want to say a big thank you to all of you who wrote such kind things about the Kentucky Derby Rant.
I have to admit, it was a spectacular day. There was the Derby, of course, where the obvious colt, Nyquist won, but the other three races on the Churchill undercard were amazing.
In the first race, the horse was scratched, in the second race, the 9 horse, Call the Colonel, won and paid $38.60, and in the 11th race, the 8 horse, Diversidero, won and paid $15.60.
In addition to that, there were two races discussed on the Wizards’ Forum, the CD 4th and 7th, that paid amazingly as well.
Now, I have to say this, and listen carefully:
This was a remarkable day where the winners clustered. Having 4 good priced winners on one card of races is fantastic, and that it happened on Kentucky Derby day is just great.
But, even if those horses didn’t decide to run, I hope that what you took away from the video was the process of ValueCapping-the interplay of the fundamentals of the race-like the pace/position scenario-with the prices involved.
It’s all about making good value bets.
Having said that, I’ve received several emails with reports of jaw-dropping results on Derby Day, and I couldn’t be happier for them.
In this video, I’ll briefly recap those races on Derby Day, and show you some of my tickets. I don’t usually do this in a public video, but one viewer questioned whether I actually bet (and cashed on) these races.
I’ll tell you the story on the video.
I talk a lot about discipline and patience, and a sober, investment-minded approach to the game. Yet, a day like Derby Day can remind us of why we love this great game.
I hope you enjoy it, and I thank you again for your encouragement and support. I can’t say thank you enough for the kind words and emails. And for those of you on the Wizards’ Forum, the support and help you give one another is something for which I am grateful every single day.
Enjoy, be sure you get your price, and let the bet make you!
All the best,
