Blog life has been a little slow for me recently, I stopped posting Hialeah selections in favour of just focusing on betting. Luckily it's gone well, I'm in the black on the meet, and my handle has gotten up to a point it has never been to for me.
This week, I will get my first rebate from my ADW. I have bet just over $1,400 this week, and I am getting back $8.98. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, it's (almost) $9 I didn't have before. But let me ask a question: what should I do with my $9?
This is a big question. $9 can't buy me a full lunch at the track. It doesn't pay for a Pick 4 ticket. It could buy one DRF, but I have an Equibase PP subscription for the Quarter Horse races I bet and most of the time if I need a DRF I can find a way to get it for free.
The $9 I'm getting back for my $1,400 in handle really doesn't do much for me. It certainly doesn't encourage me to get any closer to the $3,750 handle/week tier where I get a slightly higher % back. I really have no idea what I'm going to do with my $9 rebate.
EDIT: $9 buys about 4 and a half coffees at Tim Horton's. That's probably what I'll do.
