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.
