Handicapping Heroes -- Results from Arlington 8/12/17


The Handicappers tackled the late Pick 4 at Arlington and, although they didn't bring it down...they did have a good deal of success with nailing the late Pick 3 and providing some very profitable exacta and trifecta suggestions. Here how it shook out:

ARCHIE had eight of his sixteen picks finish in the money. Two winners, three seconds and three thirds for him. He also had an exacta in the final leg. His Best Bet Keystonetovictory ran third, his Value Play Grand Jete also ran third . His top jock of the sequence Julian Leparoux failed to win, though, in the four race sequence. ARCHIE FINISHES THE DAY WITH 17 POINTS. 

PAULIE saw nine of his sixteen picks draw money. He finished with two winners, three seconds and four thirds. Give him two exactas and two trifectas on the day as well. His Best Bet Deauville finished a disappointing third, his Value Play Ghost Hunter did not hit the board and his top jock of the sequence was also Julian Leparoux...so no cigar there. PAULIE FINISHES SECOND ON THE DAY WITH 26 POINTS. 

SCOTT got seven of his sixteen suggestions on the tote board. Three won, three placed and one showed. He scored on two exactas and two trifectas...plus nailing the late Pick 3. His Best Bet Dona Bruja ran second. His Value Play Sensitive failed to hit the board but his top jock of the sequence was Irad Ortiz, Jr. who won on Dacita in the 10th race. SCOTT WINS THE DAY WITH 33 POINTS.

Leparoux was disappointing on the day with just one third place finish and three out-of-the-money rides. Postulation surprised us all in the opening sequence (Race 9) with a win. A shipper from Delaware...maybe we should have considered his six length win in a 50k stakes race up there last out....but, honestly, there were better horses to choose from and the horse was 1 for 6 since last summer and beaten by Bullards Alley and Ghost Hunter...runners on yesterday's card. Sometimes, it can be the jockey change...J.A. Vargas, Jr. hopped on board for the first time. He came in from Parx to ride and it was one of two mounts he had on the day.  Veteran DRF handicapper Marcus Hersh did make Postulation his top pick in the race...

The winning jockeys in the sequence (Vargas, Joel Rosario, Miguel Mena and Irad Ortiz) all shipped in from other tracks and don't regularly ride at Arlington.

Check these numbers out. $1 exacta pays $71.80. .50 cent trifecta returning $173.45. Pick 3 gets you $295.25 on the .50 cent wager. All profit makers, all enough to make you a winner on the day and all available here....FREE...at Handicapping Heroes.

CUMULATIVE TOTALS: 

Paulie -- 360
Archie -- 325
Scott -- 286

Handicapping Heroes -- Results from 8/5/17



The Handicappers took on the challenging late Pick 4 at Saratoga and, although they did not take it down, they did quite well in picking horses that finished in the money. The downfall for all the guys came in Race 10...when none of them came up with morning line 15-1 winner THUNDERING SKY...out of the George Weaver barn and ridden by Rajiv Maragh. A scratch of the #2 SASSY LITTLE LILA (who all three picked) sent the handicappers scrambling for a replacement horse...but none of them came up with the eventual winner. Saratoga proved once again that it is the "graveyard of favorites"...with only two of the four favorites in the sequence getting home first. Let's see how the guys did!


SCOTT HARRIS gave us 16 runners to look at and out of those...eight made the payoff board. He had three winners, three seconds and two thirds. He also picked two exactas and a trifecta. His best bet (GUN RUNNER) did hit the line first, but his value play (TEQUILITA)  ran third in the 8th race and his top jock of the sequence (LUIS SAEZ) did not win in the sequence. SCOTT FINISHES THE DAY WITH 34 POINTS.

ARCHIE KAREL picked 16 horses in his handicapping efforts and nine of his finished in the money. Archie had three winners, three seconds and three thirds. He also had two exactas and two trifectas. His bet bet of the day (NEOLITHIC) did win the 11th. race but his value play (WAR STORY) was fourth in the Whitney. He did have top jock JOHN VELAZQUEZ get a win for him in the final race. ARCHIE ENDS THE DAY IN SECOND WITH 48 POINTS.

PAULIE also provided 16 to consider and 11 of his returned money at the window. He had three winners, four places and four shows. Give Paulie three exactas and two trifectas also. His best bet (NEOLITHIC) won but his value play (TU BRUTUS) must have taken a side trip to the Spa infield for a beer and dog. His top jock (JOSE ORTIZ) came through in the 8th race for a win. PAULIE TAKES THE DAY WITH 52 POINTS. 

Trifectas that pay $349. Exactas that triple your four-horse box investment amount. Jockeys that win and profits for the day. That's what you get here at HANDICAPPING HEROES and what you'll find each week! At no cost or fee to you. Just read the site and listen to the radio show. 

in the overall standings: 

PAULIE -- 334
ARCHIE -- 308
SCOTT  -- 253
