HANDICAPPING HEROES -- KEENELAND -- RESULTS FROM LATE PICK 4 -- 10/13/18

The Handicappers took on the challenging late Pick 4 at Keeneland yesterday  and had a faily good day. With so many good horses, trainers and jockeys on the premises, it's quite a feat to be right every time with one's selections and sometimes the hunches, training angles, past performances and jockey switches are for naught. Some horse just pops up there that you didn't consider too strongly and wins. Usually at a pretty decent price. 

That's why they call it gambling.

Here's how the handicappers did: 


HOLLYWOOD saw all 16 of his picks test the dirt and turf. Out of those, he had two winners and a third. That's a 19% "in the money" figure. No exactas, trifectas, Pick 3 or 4 success for him yesterday. HOLLYWOOD finishes the four-race sequence with 7 points. 

ARCHIE also had all of his 16 selections try the distances. He ended up with three winners, a second and two thirds. A 38% "in the money number. He also got shut out on the exactas, trifectas and the Pick 3 and 4 sequences. ARCHIE ends up with 13 points.

PAULIE had 16 go forth for him also. He totaled two wins, three seconds and two thirds. He did manage hitting an exacta in the ninth race, but had no trifectas nor the Pick 3 or Pick 4 contests. PAULIE squeaks by as the top point-getter with 16 points. 

None of us could figure out the filly and mare affair in the 8th race yesterday and did not pick the winner between the three of us. A horse that hadn't won in over a year and had been beaten by a combinated 45 lenghts in her last two (QUICK, QUICK, QUICK) proved to be quick enough and took the six furlong race. I wouldn't have had it unless I would have hit the "all" button for the race.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- SELECTIONS FOR LATE PK 4 -- 10/13/18


The Handicappers head again to Lexington to try their skills against the Keeneland runners in Races 7-10...the late Pick4. A good variety of events to look at, a maiden 67K, two nice allowance races and the Grade I Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup stakes. The first two on the dirt, the final two on the turf. 

We know not, this early, what track conditions will be like by the time of the seventh race...a guess would say a "good" dirt condition and maybe "yielding" turf...but it's anyone's guess. With Kentucky Football on a "bye" week,I expect the bourbon drinkers and college kids to stay around for the entire card...which could skewer the odds.

We don't pay a lot of attention to odds, anyway. We just pick winners...so here goes:

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FROM KEENELAND LATE PICK 4 -- 10/6/18


The Handicappers tried their best to decipher a very challenging late Pick 4 at Keeneland Saturday and had a bit of success...but, as can happen early in a meet with so many talented trainers, jockeys and horses on the premises...things can sometimes not go as envisioned. They were unable to bring down the Pick 4. A huge payout there of over $15.000.00 and horses that scored at 70-1 and 23-1.

Bombs exploded in the ninth and tenth races that we weren't able to come up with and those who were lucky enough to successfully predict them got rewarded handsomely. It's horseracing. It can and does happen.

Here's how they fared:

PAULIE had 14 of his picks go forth (two scratches) and out of those he had two winners, a second and two thirds. That's a 36% "in the money" percentage. Add an exacta to his totals but no Pick 3's or Pick 4. PAULIE ends the day with 12 points. 

HOLLYWOOD saw 15 of his selections get a call. He had two firsts, two seconds and a third. A 33% "in the money" percentage. Give him two exactas as well. HOLLYWOOD takes second in the day's point totals with 15 points.

ARCHIE had no scratches and all 16 of his picks contested the distances. Two winners for him, with a place and three shows. He ends up with a 38% "in the money" percentage. He adds an exacta and trifectas to his successes. ARCHIE narrowly takes the day's competition with 16 points. 

Keeneland is tough, no doubt about it. Too early yet to determine any tracks biases, hot jockeys or sizzling trainers. We'll keep firing, though.


CUMULATIVE TOTALS

ARCHIE   143
PAULIE    135
HOLLYWOOD   118

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- CHURCHILL DOWNS --RESULTS FROM 9/29/18



The Handicappers took on racing under the stars at Churchill Downs Saturday night with a run at the challenging late Pick 4 sequence and took it down. Although the payout wasn't extremely high, as we say here, we can just predict the winners...we can't choose the payouts...

Here's the replay:  https://soundcloud.com/chradio/handicapping-heroes-2018-09-29


PAULIE gave you 16 horses and 15 went forward. Out of those he had three winners, a second and four thirds. That's a 53% "in the money" percentage. He also added the early Pick 3 to his totals. PAULIE FINISHES THE DAY WITH 18 POINTS. 


HOLLYWOOD also had 15 break from the gate. He gave us three winners, a place and three shows. Chalk him up for an exacta and the early Pick 3 as well. He ended up with a 46% "in the money percentage. HOLLYWOOD ENDS UP WITH 19 POINTS. 

ARCHIE had all 16 of his picks go. Archie provided four winners, one second and four thirds. Archie also gave us an exacta, trifecta, both Pick 3's in the sequence and the Pick 4! That's a 56% "in the money" percentage. ARCHIE TAKES THE DAY WITH A DOMINATING 33 POINTS,

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FROM CHURCHILL DOWNS LATE PK 4 -- 9/22/18


The Handicappers took on the late Pick 4 at Churchill Downs Saturday. A track that had devolved into sloppy conditions. We had some successes but, at least speaking for myself, handicapped the races for a fast track. We record the show early Saturday morning, so we don't exactly know what the track will be like later that afternoon.

A huge surprise in race 10, when Calvin Borel guided massive long-shot DIVINE QUEEN through the field and down the rail to win. An over $100 payout on a $2 wager there. We didn't have it between the three of us.

Handicapping for wet weather involves a bit more study. You look for horses that have run in the slop and how they've done. Any races on the track they're running on that day...you pay particular attention to. A look at Divine Queen shows us that, although she had never run on a "off track", she did have a win at Churchill with Borel on board the only time that she had run at Churchill.

With these two-year old fillies, we see that, upon further review, only (2) of them had ever tried the sloppy going. #7 EveryoneLovesJimmy tried the slop once (at Churchill) lifetime and won the race. That would have been a logical choice, but the filoy did not hit the board yesterday. The #10 Naples Legacy had run three times on an off-track and never hit the board, including an eighth-place finish at Churchill back in late June. Once again, she did not hit the board.

So, sometimes the "angle" works, sometimes it doesn't...but it remains a useful handicapping tool.

Let's see how the guys did yesterday:


HOLLYWOOD had 14 of his 16 picks break from the gate, with two scratches. Out of those, he had two winners, one second and two thirds. That's a 36% "in the money" percentage. He also had one exacta. HE FINISHED THE SEQUENCE WITH 12 POINTS. 

PAULIE had 15 of his 16 picks remain in the races, with one scratch. He gave us three winners, three places and a show. That's a 47% "in the money" percentage. He also gave us two exactas, including a huge one in race 11 that paid $136.40 on a $2 wager. PAULIE ALMOST TOPS ARCHIE WITH 20 POINTS IN THE SEQUENCE. 

ARCHIE saw all 16 of his picks try the dirt with no scratches. He produced three winners, three seconds and two shows. He also gave us two exactas, with a nice one in Race 8 that paid $64 on a $2 investment. HE EDGES OUT PAULIE FOR THE TOP SPOT IN THE CONTEST WITH A TOTAL OF 21 POINTS. 

Even though we did not hit either Pick 3 or the Pick 4, we still gave out some nice payouts via the exactas.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- CHURCHILL DOWNS -- RESULTS LATE PICK 4 -- 9/15/18


The Handicappers fired away at the late Pick 4 at Churchill Downs and had some nice successes. Although they didn't hit the Pick 4, or either of the pick threes in the sequence, they gave you some nice winners. Race 10 and Brian Hernandez, Jr on Cairo Cat...at 17-1 was the culprit that ruined their Pick 4 party.

Let's see how they did:


ARCHIE saw 15 out of his 16 break from the gate and, out of those, he gave you three winners, four places and one show. That's a 53% "in the money" percentage and he had eight of the possible twelve best finishers innthe four races. Give him three exactas as well. NOT A BAD EFFORT AT ALL FOR THE BREAD GUY, HE ENDS UP WITH 24 POINTS. 

HOLLYWOOD had all 16 of his picks run down the stretch and from those he accumulated three winners, four seconds and one show. He hits 50% "in the money numbers. He also gave out three exactas and a trifecta. A NICE RUN FOR HIS MONEY TODAY, OUR APPRENTICE FINISHES WITH 27 POINTS

PAULIE gave you 16 picks and they all got a call. He also had three winners...plus four seconds and two shows for a 57% "in the money" ratio. Out of the 12 possible money spots, he grabbed nine of them. He also gave you three exactas and two trifectas. PAULIE TAKES THE DAY WITH AN IMPRESSIVE 31 POINTS. 

Sometimes, we tend to overlook things on a form or sheet that make sense AFTER the race. One could have easily played Cairo Cat in the 10th race. Good jockey, won his last race at Saratoga and turned in a bullet work preparing for this one. The bettors ignored him also, his 8-1 morning line odds drifted up to 17-1. As our co-founder and friend the late Scotty Harris used to say, always watch Brian Hernandez, Jr at Churchill. We watched him yesterday. We watched him beat us. 

WE live and learn.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- KENTUCKY DOWNS -- RESULTS FROM LATE PICK 4 --9/8/18


The races took place yesterday at Kentucky Downs on what was classified as a "good" turf for the riders and horses.

It was also a "good" day for the Handicapping Heroes crew...they din't hit the late Pick 4 but gave you the late Pick 3 and winners in all the races except the seventh.

Let's see how they did.


HOLLYWOOD had 15 break from the gate with one scratch. Out of those, he gave you two winners, two seconds and a third. That's a 33% "in the money" percentage.  He also provided an exacta and trifecta. Not a bad second outing for our newest handicapper. HOLLYWOOD finishes with 16 points for the day.

ARCHIE also had 15 try the turf and one scratch. He gave you one winner, two places and one show. He ends with a 27% "in the money" number. Add an exacta, trifecta and superfecta to his totals also. He completely owned the 8th. race. ARCHIE noses out Hollywood for second place in the points total with 17 points for the four race sequence. 

PAULIE brought his "A" game to the handicapping contest yesterday. All 16 of his started and he gave you three winners, three seconds and a third. That's a 43% in the money percentage and seven out of the possible 12 money payout slots available (58%)in the four races. He also correctly handicapped two exactas and a trifecta...plus the late Pick 3. PAULIE splashes home in the rain much the best with 26 points to take yesterday's contest. 

WE give you winners. That's what we do here. WE apologize for continued technical glitches concerning the "live" broadcast...but Paulie was able to give out the handicappers picks "live" in the studio following The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour. He also posted the original recording
of the show in yesterday's Handicapping Heroes selections. Listen for yourself.  I think I may have discovered the source of the "clicking" and "static". The test run sound pretty clear. WE WILL NOT BACK DOWN NOR GIVE UP. That's how we roll. Scott never would have and we won't either...

HANDICAPPING HEROES --RESULTS FROM KENTUCKY DOWNS -- LATE PICK 4 -- 9/1/18



The Handicappers tried their skills at boutique track Kentucky Downs yesterday. Opening day at the European-style race track that features only turf racing during its short meet. Turf racing or the cards must have agreed with the boys...hey produced some great results that included hitting both Pick 3's in the sequence and the late Pick 4. True, it was a day of favorites at the end of the card, but as our mentor and friend Scott Harris used to say:

"We can pick the horses but we can't pick what they're going to pay us."

With Hollywood joining us for the handicapping duties...Paulie and Archie took aim on the course that has the uphill stretch. Here's how they did:


HOLLYWOOD gave us 16 runners and one scratched. Out of the 15 that ran, he had three winners, a place and three shows. He also provided us with an exacta and trifecta in his picks. That's a 46% "in the money" percentage.  HOLLYWOOD MAKES HIS DEBUT HERE WITH 19 POINTS

PAULIE also saw 15 of his leave the starting gate, suffering one scratch. From those, he had four winners, a second and two thirds. That's a 46% "in the money' percentage also.  In addition, he gave out one exacta, both Pick 3's in the sequence and the Pick 4. A NICE DAY FOR PAULIE AND HE FINISHES WITH 28 POINTS. 

ARCHIE sent 15 forward and did quite well. Four winners, two seconds and two thirds. A 53% "in the money" number for him. Chalk him up two exactas, both Pick 3's and the Pick 4 over the four-race sequence. ARCHIE TAKES THE POINT TOTAL HOME WITH A VERY STRONG 32 POINTS. 

Handicapping presents one a lot of options but the ultimate one is to pick winners. The Handicappers did that quite well yesterday.

To hear a replay of yesterday's show, go to the link below. We apologize on the sound quality over the second half of the broadcast, we re working with the WCHQ technicians to get rid of that annoying "clicking" sound.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- SELECTIONS FOR KENTUCKY DOWNS -- 9/1/18



Today the Handicappers take on the opening day of racing at Kentucky Downs.

R.I.P. Brother Scott
They do so with a heavy heart. We had two major losses over the week. SCOTTY HARRIS, who was an integral part of this site and our radio show, passed away last Saturday. He came up with the idea for the venue here and the radio show back in 2014 and remained faithful, energized and encouraging about us until the end. He was 47. Then, on Monday Churchill Downs spokesman JOHN ASHER left this world. John was Churchill Downs, as popular as the Twin Spires, the Kentucky Derby or anything else related to the track.


Both will be greatly missed and we dedicate our efforts today and in the future to the two bright and shining lights these two men provided.

We bring on board "HOLLYWOOD". Nahshon Tanner is a bright, young handicapper who has impressed us with his skills and successes. No one can ever replace Scott, but we'll look to Hollywood as an addition that we know Scott would have been proud of and in favor of joining us.

Archie and I welcome Hollywood into the fold while sadly saying "See you further on down the road" to Scott and John.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- SCOTT HARRIS PASSES AWAY -- RESULTS FROM SARATOGA -- . 8/26/18



It is with deep regret and extreme sadness that we report our friend and fellow handicapper Scott Harris has passed away. He left us on Saturday morning. Arrangements are pending but we understand he'll probably be at Evergreen on Preston Highway. 

Handicapping Heroes will not be the same without our friend. We will continue with Nashawn (Hollywood)..another good friend of Scott's...offering his selections here weekly and on the radio, along with Archie and I. May God accept Scott into his loving arms. His pain and suffering is over. We will miss our friend.

Scott was the one who came up with the idea for Handicapping Heroes. He was proud of what we and he did here and, even in the final days, was planning ahead for the site and talking with me about some of the things he wanted to do and explore when Churchill's September meet came along. He was an inspiration to me, Archie and many others with his battling, positive spirit and outlook on life.

He is survived by his wife Jamie, daughter Angel and a son. 

Scott Harris. Gone at 44. 

The song clip below is for you, buddy: 

There's A Place In The World For A Gambler

-- Paulie


The Handicappers gave you a total six different race selections yesterday at Saratoga. I handicapped Races 8-11 and Archie did Races 10-13.

Archie had 16 runners compete for the money. Out of those, he had three winners and two shows. He picked the early Pick 3 in the sequence. That paid $979. He had a 25% in the money percentage. Archie ends up with 14 points.

Paulie also gave you 16 selections. He had three winners, a second and three thirds. That's a 43% "in the money" percentage. He also produced an exacta, trifecta and superfecta. Paulie takes the day's competition with 23 points. 

If you had taken Paulie and Archie's picks and played the Pick 4 for races 8-11, you would have hit it for $2741. It would have cost you $80. That's a pretty nice return on investment.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- SELECTIONS FOR SARATOGA PICK 4 -- 8/25/18


First off, our deepest thoughts and sympathy go out to the family and friends of our Handicapper and friend Scotty Harris. Scotty is in hospice and pallative care and not expected to be with us much longer. Sometimes, words escape you and this is one of those times. I can only tell you that he was a good friend, great husband and father, intelligent handicapper and a joy and pleasure to be around.

Handicapping Heroes won't be the same...our lives won't be the same with Scott in our midst. I'll miss seeing him in the chair at the desk at Churchill and miss his smile, sly comments and sage advice. He'll be free from the pain, the suffering and the worry soon. I guess God needed a good handicapper to help him hit a few Pick 4's up there at Heavenly Downs and I can think of no one finer than Scott to assist him. I will miss my friend, but I will help to keep alive the great memories of him, the times we shared on the radio and in life and the things he did for me and all of us.

Go easy, bro.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FOR SARATOGA LATE PICK 4 -- 8/18/18



The Handicappers tried their luck at the Late Pick 4 at Saratoga yesterday and met with some racing luck. There were a more than normal amount of scratches in their selections, so in some races only two of their four picks ran. A soft turf was the culprit and since three of the races were on the turf courses at Saratoga, we saw a combined total of 17 horses scratch out of the four races in the sequence and the final (10th) race was moved to the dirt...

Here's how they did:


ARCHIE had four scratches in his sixteen horse total selections. Out of the 12 remaining runners, he got (1) winner, (3) seconds and (2) thirds. That's a 50% "in the money" effort and ARCHIE ENDS THE DAY WITH 11 TOTAL POINTS. 

PAULIE also suffered four scratches in his picks. He saw 12 break from the gate also and produced (2) winners, (2) seconds and (2) thirds. Another 50% "in the money" here.. The key race for him was the ninth race..The Alabama...where he had the exacta, trifecta and superfecta. He had a little better day than Archie because of that race. PAULIE TAKES THE DAY WITH 21 POINTS. 

I'll modify a statement Scotty Harris likes to use. He's said that "we can pick the winners but we can't pick what they'll pay". I'll change that up for Saturday's card by commenting that "we can pick the horses but we can't guarantee they'll get to the starting gate".

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.

HANDICAPPING HEROES -- SELECTIONS FOR SARATOGA LATE PICK 4 -- 8/4/18


The Handicappers have quite a challenge in front of them today as they head back
to Saratoga to take on a VERY challenging Late Pick 4. Two Grade I's, a Grade III and
a challenging $100,00 stakes race on the docket.

Rain, rain....go away. These pick were made for a fast track and firm turf. If the weather gets messy, the accuracy here might be a bit off.

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.

Keep him in your

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.
