Churchill Downs -- Handicapping Heroes -- Results from 9-16-17
The Handicappers took on the late Pick 4 sequence yesterday at Churchill Downs and had a fair amount of success. They couldn't quite bring it down....thanks to a surprise 11-1 winner in the final leg, but still produced some nice winners. Here's how they did:
PAULIE sent 16 out of the gate and seven of them hit the board. He had two winners, four seconds and a third. Two exactas that paid well. No Pick 3's nor Pick 4's for Paulie. His Best Bet of the Day missed the winners circle, same with his value play and his Top Jock sequence pick Corey Lanerie was excluded as well from any wins. PAULIE finishes with 19 points.
ARCHIE also gave us 16 options and 10 of them were first, second or third. He produced two winners, four seconds and four thirds. Struck out on the Pick 3 and Pick 4's but he nailed two exactas and two trifectas. His Best Bet of the Day turned out not to be so good, but his Value Play (THE TABULATOR) did win. We'll still give him credit because obviously he couldn't control the odds and the horse dropped from morning line 6-1 to 4-1. His Top Jock (Julian Leparoux) missed winning a rider in his only mount of the sequence . ARCHIE ENDS UP with 38 points.
SCOTT had a nice day. Eight of his 16 selections got paid. Two firsts, four seconds and two thirds. Two exactas and a trifecta in his wheel-well also. No Pick 3 or 4 tallies unfortunately. His Best Bet wasn't, his Value Play didn't but he scored nicely on his top Jock (Brian Hernandez, Jr) who won twice!
SCOTT WINS THE DAY WITH 43 POINTS
It's the first round in this Race to 500 so, Scott sprints out of the gate and is the early leader. .
