Murray Slough Picks

Murray Slough is the announcer/racing analyst at Century Downs in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He also fills in occasionally at Century Mile in the Edmonton area.
 
Murray has been betting on horse racing since 1986 and is happy to report that he has beaten the takeout and made a profit — with NO REBATE — several of those last 35 years, including the years 2019 and 2021. He says he must still be on top of things somewhat as November of 2021 was one of his most profitable months ever.
 
He also wrote the (now out of print) book ‘Bet Like A Chicken, Eat Like A Chicken: A Guide to Winning at the Harness Races’.
