The Tiger Report: ROI on hunch bets

So it seems that there’s some money to be made in adultery, and not only by the Florida PD, the wronged woman, and those accepting checks for selling their stories. A quick run-down of Wednesday’s Tiger picks, with thanks to those who posted their own in the comments.

Brooklyn Backstretch Aqueduct picks

Race 2: Smokey Eyes: scratched

Race 3: Magic Tiger/Strategic Move/Come From Behind: You’d have needed to box it, but the Magic Tiger/Come From Behind/Strategic Move triple paid $48, the exacta $21.40, the win ticket $7.90.

Race 4: Siren’s Call: Won and paid $4.40; the double with Magic Tiger paid $16.40

Race 5: Embrace Change won and paid $3.50

Race 7: Bold Union over Yes, She’s a Lady. The latter scratched; the former won and paid $4.00.

Race 9: In the Spotlight: finished last.

Still, not bad, and perhaps part of a trend, if we consider the results of the Eliot Spitzer hunch bets of March 2008; of the nine horses picked in that post, six finished in the money: one finished third; three finished second; and two won, at prices of $26.80 and $23.40.

Now on to the picks left in the comments:

From Mr./Ms. Anonymous, Laurel picks:

Laurel 4th: Mylilsecret finished fourth

Laurel 5th: Faithful One/Pillow Pal exacta. Faithful One won and paid $9.80; Pillow Pal finished last.

Laurel 8th: Official Affair/Stone in Love. Stone in Love was third, Official Affair last.

Brock Sheridan’s Hollywood picks:

3rd: Yankee Romance, No More Travelin’ and Euro Girl. One reader wrote to me: “No More Travelin’ made, ahem, one final surge, to um, get up over Yankee Romance.” The exacta paid $6.60.

5th: Blame the Wine and Moma Rosa. Blame the Wine was third, Mama Rosa eighth.

And from Claire Novak:
