I honestly think every bet against a bridge jumper is a good bet.
i don't think i would agree with that statement because in betting against bridge jumpers, the many times the bridge jumpers don't want to jump you will often get a shrunken payout because there is such a little amount of money to split. in the race i linked here, betting against songbird in the show pool the #1 horse finished second at odds of 7/1 and paid only $2.10 to show. it's a small field but you would normally expect a horse at 7/1 to pay at least even money to show. in the 2nd link in betting against california chrome betting the #4 horse to show he was 26/1 to win. and he paid only $2.80 to show. west virginia may be a greatly different story because of the higher mandatory payouts.
But, one out of 10 times, you're probably going to be ending up winning $100 on average.
that's a very interesting comment you made. I cannot dispute it because I have not been tracking the results of bridge jumpers' horses. but I will say that if that is your experience it is very surprising to me. I would have guessed that the jumpers' horses scored much more often than that. if your sample size is large enough to indicate blanket correctness then that is one of the VERY VERY VERY VERY FEW legitimate systems for making money at the track. also, tracks are known for sometimes refusing show bets in small fields which suggests that their experience has not been good with bridge jumpers even though they get a windfall when the horse fails. and express bet and twinspires will sometimes terminate the account of bridge jumpers who have won. here is the link to a 2011 DRF story:
this is kind of interesting. in googling around i found a twitter feed re bridge jumper alerts. lol
Never, ever. Bridge jump against Hotspur harriat at the mountain....you're welcome
The horse will probably hit the board 9 out of 10 times.
