Around the Track
Well Chok’s Choices had one its best weeks of the meet last week showing a profit for both first and second choices. Unfortunately in Vegas at the National Horseplayers Tournament I didn’t fare as well, finishing in the middle of the pack. But, there is always next year right Saint’s fans? Here are the up-to-date season totals for Chok’s Choices:
436-79-94-65= 18% Win/55% In the Money/.76 Return or ROI
For Chok’s Second Choices or “the unders”
418-88-81-57= 21% Win/54% In the Money/.93 Return or ROI
Our Best Bet will be in Race 5- No. 7 Don’t Split Tens (turf only) Big win in last points to another win today.
Good luck and may they all come home safely.
