HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FOR ARLINGTON PICK 4 -- 8/11/18

The Handicappers fired away at the Pick 4 that included the Arlington Million yesterday at Arlington Race Course (races 9-12) and had some nice successes in the sequence. Although they did not provide all the horses that won Pick 4 races, they got you off to a great start by giving you a 38-1 long shot (Carrack) who won the 9th. race and got you through the first three races of the Pick 4 with winners.

That Pick 3, by the way, paid almost $360 on the .50 cent wager. By taking all of Archie picks in races 9-11, it would have cost you $32...so that's quite the profit. 

One of us probably should have given you Secret Message -- who won the 12th. race. If you tossed this one in and used it, congratulations....the Pick 4 returned a whopping $4380.00 on the .50 cent wager.

Here's how the Handicappers did:


PAULIE saw 14 of his 16 picks leave the gate (scratches in the 11th, unfortunately) and out of those runners...5 returned you money. That's a 36% "in the money" figure and 41% of the total payouts in the four races. He had but one winner, three place horses and a show. Add in a exacta also for ol' Cardinal Couple guy. PAULIE totals 12 points in the contest. Much room for improvement there.

ARCHIE had all 16 of his picks go down the stretch. Seven of his selections finished in the money. That's a 43% "in the money" number and 58% of the possible payouts. He was "en fuego" with three winners and four seconds. Chalk him up for three exactas and the early Pick 3 also. ARCHIE was much the best in yesterday's contest with an impressive 26 points. 

As we draw closer to live racing in September at Churchill Downs and Kentucky Downs, we're considering a couple of additions to the Handicapping Heroes crew. We'll keep you up on that and the progress there.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FOR SARATOGA -- 8/5/18


The Handicappers picks were cut in half when Saratoga Race officials decided to not run on the turf Courses in the final two races on Saturday's card and postpone them for a more favorable racing day.  A wise decision, since the rains in that area of New York had the turf course in deplorable condition. Those two races will be run next week, according to track management. Safety first, right?

So, we'll watch for those. There was a lengthy delay between races 8 & 9 because of another storm in the area with lightning.  Here's how the Handicappers did.

All eight of PAULIE'S runners broke from the gate in races 8 & 9. Out of them, he had two seconds and a win. He also hit the exacta in the ninth. A 37.5% "in the money" percentage and 50% of the possible pays. PAULIE turns in 9 points. 

ARCHIE did well with the two races we handicapped, hitting the winners and place horses in each. That's a 50% "in the money" success race and 66% of the possible payouts. He also took both exactas. ARCHIE takes the most points with a nice 14 points total.

We'll see how our picks in races 10 and 11 turn out  and who the overall winner is when these races are officially run.

I did talk with Scott Harris' wife Jamie last evening. He won't be with us today here at the site or on the HANDICAPPING HEROES Radio Show. He's had another setback (He can't catch a break, it seems). In the hospital for a medical procedure, he fell in his room and may have cracked a few ribs.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FOR SARATOGA LATE PICK 4 -- 7/28/18


The Handicappers took on the challenging late Pick 4 at Saratoga Saturday and met with some very good racing luck. As it goes up at the "Spa", sometimes favorites fail to fire...as we saw in the ninth race when huge morning line long shot Glorious Empire (Julian Leparoux) at 20-1 managed to dead-heat with morning line 10-1 runner Channel Maker (Joel Rosario) for the win. Big favorite Hi Happy failed to hit the board and Money Multiplier scratched out of the race.

Here's the Handicappers numbers.


ARCHIE had 15 out of his 16 picks go out of the gate. Of those, he had three winners, two seconds and two thirds. That's a 47% "in the money" ratio. He also gave out two exactas. ARCHIE ends up with 19 points, based on our scoring system. 

PAULIE also had 15 of his 16 compete. He gave you four winners, two seconds and three shows. That's a sizzling 60% "in the money" percentage. When you figure the best anyone could do in the sequence is have all twelve of the win, place or show finishes...that is 75% .(9 of 12). He also gave out two exactas, a trifecta, both Pick 3's and the Pick 4. PAULIE had a very nice day with 36 points.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FOR SARATOGA LATE PICK 4 -- 7/21/18



Two of the Handicappers took on the second day of racing at Saratoga and did not fare so badly. It takes a bit of time, usually to pick up trends and "hot" trainers and jockeys at any track. Yesterday, in the Late Pick 4, four different jockeys won and only Brad Cox had multiple victories as a trainer in the sequence with two wins. Trainng wise,  Pletcher, Asmussen, Brown, Casse, Donk, Henning, Jerkens, Lukas, McGaughey, McPeek, Motion, Rice, Romans, Servis, Stall, Ward and Wilkes --and that doesn't even scraatch the surface. Say what you will about West Coast and Del Mar (and it's all good out there as well). the best and brightest are in eastern New York.

Here's how the Handicapper's did:

PAULIE gave you sixteen horses he thought might hit the board and six managed to. 37.5% in the money.  He had two winners, two places and two shows. Give him two exactas on the day as well. An OK start to a tough first week of Handicapping at the Spa and he finished with 16 points.

ARCHIE also provided 16 horses to watch and out of those seven got you paid. 43% in the money. Archie had three winners, two seconds and two thirds. He also hit an exacta and the late Pick 3. A nice $102.50 payout on that late Pick 3 for the dollar. ARCHIE takes the contest today with 20 points. 

Such is the chance one takes when they take on the best. Ortiz's, Geroux, Leparoux, Castellano, Velazquez, Saez, Rosario and Santana. One heck of a starting nine, right? A Hall-of-Fame riders' contingent, for sure.
