HANDICAPPING HEROES -- KEENELAND -- RESULTS FROM LATE PICK 4 -- 10/27/18
The Handicappers fired away at the late Pick 4 at Keeneland on the final day of the Fall meet and had some nice successes. As the horses, trainers, owners and jockeys now transition over to Churchill for Breeders Cup and the Fall meet there, we say "Goodbye" to the Lexington track and set out sights on the running under the Twin Spires.
Here's how we did yesterday:
HOLLYWOOD had 15 of his picks go in the four-race sequence. Out of those, he gave you two winners, two seconds and two thirds. That's a 40% "in the money" percentage. Credit him an exacta as well. HOLLYWOOD ends up with 20 points in the sequence.
ARCHIE also had 15 runners break from the gate. He scored three winners, three seconds and a third. That's a 46% "in the money" percentage. Arch also had three exactas, and hit the late Pick 3. ARCHIE takes second place on the day with 25 points.
PAULIE suffered a few scratches and 13 of his picks ended up contesting the distances. He registered three winners, three seconds and a third. A 54% "in the money percentage. He also picked three exactas, a trfecta, a superfecta and the late Pick 3. PAULIE takes the contest with a strong 32 points.
Sometimes, it's "that one race" that can do long term damage on those multiple race-type of wagers. Yesterday, it was the 7th. race. None of the handicappers cold come up with the winner (Faraway Kitten) and he maybe should have been given a closer look with Brian Hernandez, Jr. on board and it being a turf race. Michael Maker trained and owned by the Ramsey's...the horse went off a 11-1 and rewarded his backers handsomely. As a group, we came up with just two horses between the three of us, in that race, that made money -- Archie's selection of English Bee who ran third and Hollywood's choice of Go Away, who got up for second.
We'll move to Churchill next week and try to give you, here at the site, as much coverage as possible on the Breeders Cup Friday and Saturday races. Check here for our picks on Friday and Saturday.
