Goldfeder: Using churn to positive effect

There are many approaches to take as a horseplayer. It doesn’t hurt to mix things up to prevent getting into a rut and to keep your approach fresh. Last week I discussed the topic of churn and mentioned that I would be reviewing my play each week as I to try to raise my handle and improve my play. My goal is to churn 50-100 percent of my bankroll and end the day with a positive ROI of +.10/$1.00. I usually try to bet around 5 percent of bankroll on any individual race.

King: Gulfstream Park pick four for Saturday, March 25

With a ho-hum first half of the card Saturday at Gulfstream, the most appealing wager of the day is the late pick four, particularly since I have a 4-1 price horse to single in the featured Skip Away Stakes in Fear the Cowboy.

Bernier: How I'll play Santa Anita on Saturday, March 25

The featured event on Saturday’s Santa Anita program is the nightcap, the Grade 2 San Luis Rey. I’m planning on keying in on two separate double sequences – one linking races 4 and 5, and the other races 8 and 9.
