My name is Sam Wilson. I have been a Full-time Horse racing trader since 2006. These betting markets are constantly evolving to present fresh challenges to even the most seasoned traders. I will share my knowledge and experiences here as I continue to Adapt & Survive.
Can be fast and furious with races going off every 5 minutes it does get quite hectic. It’s harder to stay focused so sometimes I will skip races at poorer meetings with lower liquidity. This also gives me more time to assess the next market and possibly get a decent early position.
I started slowly and was probably being a bit too reserved after my awful start on Friday.
I missed the boat on more markets than I’d of liked and had one hefty losse where I didn't bite the bullet and get out of bad a position, saying that the P&L was in a healthy state in the end so I can’t complain.
My best race today was the at Haydock. I took a screen shot just after id got into some decent positions and took another just at the end as I was greening up.
Saturday rounded off an amazing week for me. I missed Monday due to Notting Hill Carnival partying. I’ve rarely pulled that much profit out of 104 markets especially in whats supposed to be a quiet week.
I’m putting a good chunk of this into my football account to try some in-play next week… I think it’s important to keep different trading banks separate especially when trying a new sport seriously for the first time. There’s a whole new load of lessons to be learnt and it would be silly to be reckless and throw away money you’ve spent years building
