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.
