    TVG Money Back Promo Tracking Thread

    I have been playing around with TVGs Money Back Promo and feel like its a decent deal. Math guys check in!

    basically you get insurance on your win bet up to 10$ if your horse finishes second or third.

    Saratoga race 8

    Be careful if you only play the promo races. They will cut you off the promos if you do.

    I always play the moneyback races. Seems like I run 2nd and 3rd a lot.

    I also play the exacta insurance races all day Thursday at Saratoga and Sunday at Delmar

    Excellent promo. I think yesterday I made like $60 doing it. Forgot a race today and one race only had 5 horses so I didn't bet it.

    Good way to pad the horse roll. I don't bet the ponies often but these promotions are excellent.

    Haven't ran the numbers, but to me, you'll want to hit the favorite at 3/2 or better. 67% of the time you will get your money back at least, 33% of the time you'll cash the win bet.

    I mix the favorites and long shots based on my capping (heads/tails) but that’s good info

    Joe, I have contributed more to para pools than I will ever make back so I’m sure TVG will oblige me a few days when I only play the promos. I’m not really a nit or a sharp player so if they cut me off I’ll take it as a sign I’m getting better. Probably Would be a blessing in disguise honestly.

    Del Mar race 6

    the class of the race appears to be the 2 and the 3 horses. Rispoli has been pretty hot as has Prat although imo Prat gets a lot of premium rides but I guess that’s the game when you’re good.

    anywho I am going to play the 3 Brix M/L 3-1

    Brix hits pays 9/2

    risked 20 for +35.00 profit for the day on the promo.

    I had a small 2$ win bet on that 5 horse so I was hoping for a 5-3 finish there but I will be happy with the win. In these sprints, the betting public gives no love to the Los Al TB's who run the 870/1000yd sprints and it seems like they do pretty well at Del Mar even though the class differences are huge.

    Here's the thing to do:

    Bet any favorite at 3/2 or better. If the favorite is below 3/2, bet the 2nd choice. You'll be +EV.

    A little off topic here but did anyone see that bridge jumper in race 4 at mountaineer? Someone bet 50k to show on a 2/5 in an eight horse field.

    the 8 horse ran second and paid $111 to show
