A takeout from the piece:

" However, in this sizzling economy and with the Internet, there is finally a close analogy for horse race betting—it’s called “Day Trading.” I’m sure you’ve seen these kiddies on TV. The TV financial networks love them as five-minute color pieces on the hot economy."
When the hell did Carroll originally write this thing: in 1999? What hot economy? No one day trades anymore. He's recycling old stuff that he wrote and posting them as recent. That's bogus.

Also he writes about taking $100 to the track and with a 25% ROI returning home with $125. Huh? You can bet $200 or more over 10 races if you keep your head above water. If you bet $20 a race and are even after 5 races you can bet $200. In fact you can bet $300 if you bet $30 a race and are even after race 3 and race 6. A 25% ROI on that would be $75 profit.

The whole piece is idiotic.

You know your right, I had a feeling I had read this before, went to his site, he wrote this couple years back.

Like most "authors" I guess he pulled on the utter once to often
amd came up dry.

There is also a big difference between spending all that money at the track and phone wagering.

The ambience of the paddock and the odor of the "substance" that effects the sense of smell is worth every dollar.
