Sunday, June 8 – Our selections for Saturday’s Belmont Stakes went down the drain along with California Chrome’s bid to win the race and become the first Triple Crown champion since 1978.
None of our $50 in recommended bets produced a wining ticket.
Still, we came out ahead for the three Triple Crown races because of our winning bets on the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.
Our combined three-race wagers of $138 produced a payout of $235.60. Our recommendations made $97.60; a 71 percent return on investment.
Our Belmont bets lost because we did not include second-place finisher Commissioner and only had the winner Tonalist second in an exacta and on the bottom in a trifecta and a superfecta.
We will resume our handicapping in July, with analysis of the stakes races at Gulfstream Park.
