Derby Day Recap

After a soggy morning, the sun shone brightly on our old Kentucky home and Churchill Downs. ALWAYS DREAMING got a perfect trip, overcame State of Honor in the stretch and went onto win the 143rd Kentucky Derby by a couple of lengths over long shot Lookin At Lee. 

Scott and Paulie handicapped the middle PK 4 (races 9-12). Paulie also provided selections on races 6-8. Here's how they did. 

SCOTT gave us 14 horses in the sequence. He did have a scratch. Out of his 13 runners, he had three hit the board. Give him a place and two shows. His point total was 4. (Note, these won't apply to the overall standings since Archie was not a participant.)   

PAULIE sent 16 selections. All ran. Out of them, eight hit the board. He had three winners, two seconds and three shows. He provided the Kentucky Derby winner with Always Dreaming. He gave out the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in Race 11. He finishes with 19 points. 

In Races 6-8, Paulie had two winners, a second and two thirds. 

The Handicapping Heroes Radio Show on Saturday was a classic! We gave out 18 Derby Selections from various people. A few even got the winner! The rebroadcast can be heard at the link below.
