Betting With Surelock : The Silicon Sleuth

December 02, 1990

Once again, SURELOCK's penchant for exactas instead of straight bets on his choices cost him a nice payoff. Big Warning, his pick in the ninth Saturday, paid $14.60, but the computer lost $90 because it couldn't come up with the place horse.

SURELOCK's bets for today are $100 to win on Plenty Of Grace, a $40 exacta, Plenty Of Grace to Royal Touch, and a $20 exacta reversing the two in the eighth race.

SURELOCK's Sat. Bankroll: $1,4444

Saturday's Loss: $90

Current Bankroll: $1,354

Bob Mieszerski lost $60 when his key exacta horse finished ninth in the fourth race. Bob's bet for today is $100 to win on My Boy Adam in the fifth race.

Bob's Sat. Bankroll: $1,397.20

Saturday's Loss: $60

Current Bankroll: $1,337.20

Both started with $2,000 bankrolls.
