The Handicappers tried their luck at the Late Pick 4 at Saratoga yesterday and met with some racing luck. There were a more than normal amount of scratches in their selections, so in some races only two of their four picks ran. A soft turf was the culprit and since three of the races were on the turf courses at Saratoga, we saw a combined total of 17 horses scratch out of the four races in the sequence and the final (10th) race was moved to the dirt...

Here's how they did:

ARCHIE had four scratches in his sixteen horse total selections. Out of the 12 remaining runners, he got (1) winner, (3) seconds and (2) thirds. That's a 50% "in the money" effort and ARCHIE ENDS THE DAY WITH 11 TOTAL POINTS. 

PAULIE also suffered four scratches in his picks. He saw 12 break from the gate also and produced (2) winners, (2) seconds and (2) thirds. Another 50% "in the money" here.. The key race for him was the ninth race..The Alabama...where he had the exacta, trifecta and superfecta. He had a little better day than Archie because of that race. PAULIE TAKES THE DAY WITH 21 POINTS. 

I'll modify a statement Scotty Harris likes to use. He's said that "we can pick the winners but we can't pick what they'll pay". I'll change that up for Saturday's card by commenting that "we can pick the horses but we can't guarantee they'll get to the starting gate".
