Breeders Crown: Bet $100, Get $100

Email

Using my theory that if you sign up for a new DRF Bets account you get $100 after you wager $100, here is what I would do with $200 on Breeders Crown night at Woodbine.

I’m not an overly aggressive player, but I do enjoy action. That is why you will see me taking a shot in every race. I’ll keep most of my wagers small ($8 to $12 per race) and step out to $16 on key horses I like. My biggest wager amounts will come in the Pick Four, where I hope to hit a David Freese-like home run.

If you want to see my in-depth race-by-race look at the races, check out my Breeders Crown Analysis or my video analysis with Dan Illman.

NOTICE: This is a mythical bankroll and my suggested plays. I’m not guaranteeing you will win. You wager at your own risk.

Let’s get started.

Derick, thanks for posting your ideas, it was fun to follow along. The results were mostly too chalky for me tonight, but what can you do... And thanks for getting this blog going! It's great to see harness racing covered in the Form. And the live video was priceless - no way I was going to Canada today, but I got to see every minute of racing. That's the kind of service that keeps customers coming back for more. I'm eager to see what else you cover here - best wishes!
