HANDICAPPING HEROES -- Results from Keeneland 4/21/18
The Handicappers took on the VERY challenging late Pick 4 (Races 7-10) Saturday at Keeneland and had a bit of success...but it was not their finest day, by far. Double digit payoffs (in terms of dollars) in three of the four races and an absolute bomb at 24-1 to start the sequence had the guys out of the Pick 4 pretty early.
Let's see how they did:
PAULIE had 15 of his 16 picks go forth....with one scratch in Dot Matrix. Out of those, he had a winner, a second and three thirds in the four race sequence. No exactas, trifectas, superfectas, Pick 3's or 4's for your genial host. He ends the day with a mere 8 points.
ARCHIE saw all 16 of his selections break from the gate. He had two winners, no seconds and three thirds. He was also shut out of the exactas, trifectas, superfectas, Pick 3's and Pick 4's. "Mr Derby" ended the day with 9 points.
SCOTT also got all 16 of his picks to contest the four races. Scott had two winners, two places, two shows. He also produced a exacta...but got knocked out in all the other multi-horse gimmicks. Still, "The Gold Room Guru" takes the day with 14 points.
We were saddened to see out buddy Faron McCubbins horse BULLARDS ALLEY stop suddenly in the ninth race and get pulled up. We later found out he was euthanized because of a Lateral condyne fracture in left rear leg. One hates to see that in racing and our condolences to Faron for losing a horse that had 40 races in his six years and had six wins...earning $927,789 dollars.
