HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FROM LATE PICK 4 CHURCHILL DOWNS -- 11/17/18
The Handicappers tried their skills against the Late Pick 4 (Races 8-11) at Churchill Downs yesterday and had some successes. Although they did not take down the Pick 4, they did give you some winners and exactas and a trifecta. Here 's how they did:
HOLLYWOOD had 14 of his 16 picks start. Out of those, he had two winners, a place and two shows. That's a 36% "in the money" percentage. He also gave you an exacta. HOLLYWOOD FINISHED THE FOUR RACE SEQUENCE WITH 12 POINTS.
ARCHIE saw 15 of his 16 runners break from the gate. From those, he scored two winners and three seconds. That's a 33% "in the money" percentage. He also provided you an exacta in the 10th. race...like Hollywood did. ARCHIE ENDS UP WITH 14 POINTS.
PAULIE ended up with 15 of his 16 picks running. He had three winners, three seconds and two shows. That's a 54% "in the money" number. He added two exactas and a trifectas to those numbers. PAULIE EASILY TAKES THE DAY WITH 24 POINTS.
Sometimes, one race can wreck a sequence. That happened to the Handicappers in race 9, where they couldn't come up with the winner, a 6-1 morning line horse named AUSPICIOUS BABE, who hadn't won since June, but got a nice ride from up-and-coming star Edgar Morales and barely nosed out GO GOOGLE YOURSELF at the wire (who all the Handicappers had.)
Give Archie credit, he did mention AUSPICIOUS BABE as his fifth pick on the radio show.
Horse racing can be -- like any other sport -- a game of inches at times.
