HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FROM THE LATE PICK 4 -- CHURCHILL DOWNS 11/24/18

 The Handicappers fired away at the Saturday "Stars Of Tomorrow" card at Churchill and had a few success. No one saw the 10th race major upset coming...where Forloveofcountry scored at huge odds, maybe you could pick this horse because of hot riding Tyler Gaffalione but he certainly wasn't in any of our top four picks. 

The results: 

ARCHIE picked 16 horses for the four race sequence and had two winners, two places and a show. 31% "in the money". He also had an exacta in the 12th race along with the other Handicappers. HE FINISHES WITH 13 POINTS. 

PAULIE also sent 16 choices to the dirt. He had two winners, three seconds and a third. A 38% "in the money" percentage. With the exacta, PAULIE SCORES 15 POINTS 

HOLLYWOOD selected 16 horses for the sloppy/muddy conditions. He ended with three winners, two seconds and a show. Good for a 38% "in the money" rate. HOLLYWOOD TAKES OUR FINAL 2018 HANDICAPPING CHALLENGE WITH 16 POINTS. 

FINAL CUMULATIVE STANDINGS

PAULIE             303
ARCHIE            285
HOLLYWOOD    256

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- SELECTIONS FOR LATE PICK 4 -- CHURCHILL DOWNS -- 11/24/18


This is our final Handicapping Heroes post until the spring of 2019, when we'll resume giving you analysis and picks on the Derby trail, most likely starting off with the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream on March 2nd. 

We've had some peaks and valleys in 2018. What stands out the most is the loss of co-founder and "heart and soul" of the site and show -- Scotty Harris. It was Scott who started things off with me when we were doing podcasts on his phone for racing and putting them on Facebook and YouTube. 

We miss Scott every day. Hollywood came in to be our new "third" with me and Arch and has done admirably. We appreciate him joining us.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FROM LATE PICK 4 CHURCHILL DOWNS -- 11/17/18


The Handicappers tried their skills against the Late Pick 4 (Races 8-11) at Churchill Downs yesterday and had some successes. Although they did not take down the Pick 4, they did give you some winners and exactas and a trifecta. Here 's how they did: 


HOLLYWOOD had 14 of his 16 picks start. Out of those, he had two winners, a place and two shows. That's a 36% "in the money" percentage. He also gave you an exacta. HOLLYWOOD FINISHED THE FOUR RACE SEQUENCE WITH 12 POINTS. 

ARCHIE saw 15 of his 16 runners break from the gate. From those, he scored two winners and three seconds. That's a 33% "in the money" percentage. He also provided you an exacta in the 10th. race...like Hollywood did. ARCHIE ENDS UP WITH 14 POINTS. 

PAULIE ended up with 15 of his 16 picks running. He had three winners, three seconds and two shows. That's a 54% "in the money" number. He added two exactas and a trifectas to those numbers. PAULIE EASILY TAKES THE DAY WITH 24 POINTS. 

Sometimes, one race can wreck a sequence. That happened to the Handicappers in race 9, where they couldn't come up with the winner, a 6-1 morning line horse named AUSPICIOUS BABE, who hadn't won since June, but got a nice ride from up-and-coming star Edgar Morales and barely nosed out GO GOOGLE YOURSELF at the wire (who all the Handicappers had.)

Give Archie credit, he did mention AUSPICIOUS BABE as his fifth pick on the radio show. 

Horse racing can be -- like any other sport -- a game of inches at times.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FROM CHURCHILL DOWNS LATE PICK 4 -- 11/10/18



The Handicappers went after the late Pick 4 and Archie Karel took it down! Great efforts, as well, by both Paulie and Hollywood as well in the Race 8-11 sequence under the Twin Spires on their Saturday picks.

Here's how the handicappers did:

HOLLYWOOD saw 15 of his 16 picks break from the gate, suffering one scratch. He gave out three winners, two seconds and a third. Chalk him up for an exacta as well. That's a 40% "in the money" percentage. HOLLYWOOD SCORES 16 POINTS ON THE DAY. 

PAULIE picked 16 horses in the four race sequence and all competed. He had three of the four winners, two places and two shows. Credit him with an exacta, trifecta, superfecta and the late Pick 3. He ended up with a 50% "in the money" percentage. PAULIE PUTS UP AN IMPRESSIVE 29 POINTS ON THE DAY'S PICKS...good for second place.

ARCHIE'S 16 radio and website selections all went to the post. He handed out four winners, two seconds and a third.. He also cashed in on two exactas, both Pick 3's and the late Pick 4 ! A VERY GOOD DAY FOR ARCHIE, WHO TAKES THE CONTEST WITH 31 POINTS. 

We've said it so many times here and once again, it comes to fruition. We give you winners here at Handicapping Heroes! Pick 4's that return almost $400.00 on 50 cent wagers. 10 cent superfectas that bring back almost $100. Nice exactas and trifectas. And winners!
