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.
