Impressive Start to Annapolis-to-Newport Race:
Annapolis, MD (June 3, 2017) – A large spectator fleet turned out on the Chesapeake Bay for the second start of the 2017 Annapolis-to-Newport Race. Vessels of all types, shapes and sizes congregated at both ends of the starting line and they were treated to an impressive display of size and power when the Volvo 70 Warrior raised its massive asymmetrical spinnaker and launched off the line on starboard tack.
Skipper Stephen Murray was at the helm of the high-tech racing machine and patiently picked his way through the fleet, most of which started on port. As soon as Warrior was clear of the other boats, Murray pointed the bow down a bit to achieve maximum speed on a reach towa…

Do you have a good horse racing system that you use for handicapping races?Â While we often think of betting on horse races as a carefree thing that many people doÂ just for fun, the truth of the matter is that if you’re wagering real money, and you need that money, betting on races is very serious.Â If you’re the kind of person who’d like to just leave the outcome of your life to chance, then don’t waste your time reading this article, but if you believe that things you do affect the outcome and quality of your life, then read on.
I don’t want to take all the fun out of betting on horse races, but if you’re wagering money and trying to get ahead, let’s be serious.Â You need a good system to evaluate the horses.Â Next, you need a strategy.Â A strategy is the way in which you’ll use the information that system produces to wager on the horses and that is part of the plan.
For instance, you may say, “My plan is to handicap the horse races using one of my three favorite systems that I’ve learned and once I’ve evaluated the horses, my strategy is to watch the odds for value.”Â That is how a plan, horse racing system, and strategy all work together to produce success.Â Of course, every plan needs goals and milestones.Â A goal is a final result you wish to accomplish.Â For instance, maybe your final goal is to one day make a living from betting on horses (by the way, this is extremely difficult to do).
You write down your goal and start to think about steps you’ll have to take and how you’ll know if what you are doing is working.Â For that you’ll need milestones.Â You may think of them as mini goals along the way.Â Milestones, as the name implies, mark your progress along the way.Â One of your milestones may be to increase your starting bankroll by 50% after several months of handicapping.Â Next, you will need to write down the steps you will take to reach that milestone.
An example of the steps would be how many bets you will have to make and what you’re return on investment (ROI) might be to reach that milestone.Â Obviously this should all be written down and incorporated into your plan.Â If this sounds like a lot of work and planning, just think of how hard you worked for that money you are willing to risk on your horse racing bets and how hard you’ll have to work if you don’t plan to succeed and pull it off.
Financial success in business, gambling, and almost any other endeavor in life requires plans, strategies, and systems.Â Learn to use them in one part of your life and see the results and you’ll soon be applying them to other areas as well.
