Results from 3/25/17 Turfway Spiral Stakes and Pk 4



Saturday wasn't a day we'll always remember because of the handicappers selections. Honestly, it was a rough go for the guys predicting the Turfway sequence and winners. Prices galore out there if you had them...17-1 in the 8th, 14-1 in the 9th, 25-1 in the 10th and 23-1 in the 11th. 

The guys teamed up with Spanky and did a Pick 4 ticket where they went a little deep into the card. They came up with the winners in the 8th. and 9th. Scott gave you the winner in the 8th and in the ninth...our buddy Dr. Tom Childers had a horse going (Purely A Dream) and won!  and we included the horse in our pick 4. Unfortunately, no one tossed in the #3 in the 10th race. Paulie gave you the winner in the 11th...but no pick 4 cashing...it paid over $79,000 on a 50 cent bet. 


PAULIE provided 16 horses to consider. One scratched. Out of them, he had three third-place finishes and a winner. His best bet and top jock of the sequence fell short...but his value play (Ingadore) in the 11th won and paid $47.20 to win! He leads the points total for today with 16 

SCOTT offered 16 horses to look at also and had that same scratch (Royal by Nature) His remaining horses got him a win and four shows. None of his multipliers came through...he ended the day with seven points.

ARCHIE ended up with 15 horses answering the starting bell. No winners for him and three third place runners. He struck out also on the Best Bet, Value Play and Top Jock areas. His day produced 3 points.


In the overall race...Scott stays on top with 91 points. Archie is second with 83 and Paulie stays third with 80.

Recap of Saturday 3/18/17



We had some ups and downs in handicapping the late pick four at Oaklawn that surrounded the Rebel Stakes but we still provided winners in three of the four races and had some successes. Here's the recap.

SCOTT HARRIS gave us 16 runners and six of those hit the board. Two winners, three seconds and a third. Two exactas hit and his value play (Leofric)  won...plus his top jock (Javier Castellano) won twice. A total of 47 points...making his the runaway winner on the day out of the three of us

ARCHIE KAREL provided 16 horses over the four race sequence and five paid out. Two winners, two places and a show. His top jock for the sequence won a race (Mike Smith). Give the Vegas insider a total of 21 points for Saturday.

PAULIE'S 16 entries ended up returning money on six of them. Two winners, two seconds and two thirds. His best bet of the day won (Mor Spirit) won also. He ends up with a total of 22 points for the day...an OK but not spectacular day.


After two weeks....SCOTT leads the contest with 84 points. Archie is close behind with 80 and
Paulie follows with 64.

RESULTS FROM 3-11-17



HANDICAPPERS CLEAN UP ON TAMPA BAY DERBY DAY

A nice start to the 2017 HANDICAPPING HEROES selections. The guys did well in navigating the Tampa Bay Derby Pick 4. Scott Harris provided the sequence for you in his picks...a $190.60 payout on the .50 cent bet. 

ARCHIE KAREL rushes into March with a total of 59 points! He gave us 16 horses...and 10 hit the board. Three winners, three seconds and four thirds. He also had two exactas and two trifectas in his selections. his top jock, Jose Ortiz won twice and his best bet of the day...Tapwrit..won also. The bread man had the oven blazing! 

PAULIE ended up with 42 points. Out of his 16 selections, he had eight horses get paid. Two winners, three seconds and three thirds. He also hit a trifecta and two exactas. His top jock was Ortiz also...but his best bet and value play didn't connect. Not bad for a guy who has taken the last three months off of handicapping, I guess. 

SCOTT HARRIS was on the mark with his 16 horses. 37 points on the four race sequence. 11 of them were in the money! Four winners, three seconds and four thirds. 69% for the pool shark! Toss in three trifectas and three exactas for a nice day of going to the window. We don't add Pick 3's or 4's into the stats, but Scott had two Pick 3's and the Pick 4. Unfortunately, his top jock (Leparoux) didn't win, his best bet (Isabella Sings) ran third and value play (Dynatail) did not win. 

Those individual categories can either make or break you in the contest...sometimes. 

Good work, gentleman!

Getting ready to get back into it



Our radio show HANDICAPPING HEROES is ready to make its 2017 debut! We'll start up again this Saturday on WCHQ 100.9 FM at noon with a look at the Tampa Bay Derby and the Pick 4 that surrounds it.

We look forward to jumping back into the horse-racing review and have the same cast of characters lined up for you.  Paulie is hosting again and he'll have Scott Harris and Archie Karel as the expert handicappers back also to provide their views. You never know just who may drop in to provide comments and thoughts...our guess is that Spanky, Professor Bicker, the Big L and others will be heard from over the next nine months.

We've missed being on the air...hopefully you have missed us as well.
