Welcome, horse racing enthusiasts! Our renowned sports handicapper, Ron Raymond, has a host of insights for the Belmont Park races this Friday, May 19, 2023. Let's dive into his picks for Win, Place, Show, along with his Exacta and Trifecta picks. Moreover, we will also be delving into his favorite wagering system, the “Double Dutch” Betting system.
For those unfamiliar with the “Double Dutch” Betting system, it is a strategic approach to horse racing wagering, where the bettor selects one horse to win and/or place in a race. This system provides an added layer of safety; even if your chosen horse finishes second, you could get your money back, depending on the odds. It's a practical and exciting method that allows you to engage with horse racing with a strategic edge.
