She's a Handicapper now..and I'm saying "Champagne, Anyone?"

The Handicappers fired away at the Pick 4 that included the Arlington Million yesterday at Arlington Race Course (races 9-12) and had some nice successes in the sequence. Although they did not provide all the horses that won Pick 4 races, they got you off to a great start by giving you a 38-1 long shot (Carrack) who won the 9th. race and got you through the first three races of the Pick 4 with winners.

That Pick 3, by the way, paid almost $360 on the .50 cent wager. By taking all of Archie picks in races 9-11, it would have cost you $ that's quite the profit. 

One of us probably should have given you Secret Message -- who won the 12th. race. If you tossed this one in and used it, congratulations....the Pick 4 returned a whopping $4380.00 on the .50 cent wager.

Here's how the Handicappers did:

PAULIE saw 14 of his 16 picks leave the gate (scratches in the 11th, unfortunately) and out of those runners...5 returned you money. That's a 36% "in the money" figure and 41% of the total payouts in the four races. He had but one winner, three place horses and a show. Add in a exacta also for ol' Cardinal Couple guy. PAULIE totals 12 points in the contest. Much room for improvement there.

ARCHIE had all 16 of his picks go down the stretch. Seven of his selections finished in the money. That's a 43% "in the money" number and 58% of the possible payouts. He was "en fuego" with three winners and four seconds. Chalk him up for three exactas and the early Pick 3 also. ARCHIE was much the best in yesterday's contest with an impressive 26 points. 

As we draw closer to live racing in September at Churchill Downs and Kentucky Downs, we're considering a couple of additions to the Handicapping Heroes crew. We'll keep you up on that and the progress there.
