Handicapping Heroes -- Results from Keenland 4/7/18
The Handicappers took on the Pick 4 that ran from Races 7 -10 at Keeneland
yesterday and met with a great deal of success. Between Paulie, Archie and Scott --
they hit three of the four races, two exactas, two trifectas, a superfecta and the late pick 3.
Just a reminder on how the scoring works. A winner is worth (3) points. A place is worth (2) and a show (1) point. Hitting an exacta is worth (2) points, a trifecta worth (3) points and a superfecta (4) points. Correctly picking a PICK 3 is worth (3) points and a PICK 4 gets you (4) points
WIN 3 pts
PLACE 2 pts
SHOW 1 pt
EXACTA 2 pts
TRIFECTA 3 pts
SUPER 4 pts
PICK 3 3 pts
PICK 4 4 pts
One thing we've changed from last year is selecting and awarding points for the contestants BEST JOCKEY, BEST BET and VALUE PLAY for the sequence. We felt that
too many points were being awarded for these and so you won't see those in the pages here.
So, how did the guys do?
PAULIE had 15 of his 16 horses go forth with one scratch. Out of them he had two winners, four seconds, four thirds, two exactas, two trifectas and a superfecta! HE FINISHED WITH 32 POINTS on the day.
ARCHIE had all 16 of his picks break from the gate. Out of then, he had two winners, four places, four shows, two exactas, two trifectas, and a superfecta THE ARCH ENDS THE DAY WITH 32 POINTS.
SCOTT saw 15 of his 16 runners go...with one scratch. He produced three winners, three seconds, three thirds two exactas, a trifecta, a superfecta and the late Pick 3. SCOTT ALSO EARNED 32 POINTS.
No typo here...all three tied with 32 points.
We will be exploring more options as the seasons continues. We've discussed "guest" or "celebrity" handicappers to go up against the boys...plus interviews with people in or studying to get in the industry. All that in a mere 30 minutes?
We'll have to speed up in some areas, but we can do it!
