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

Sunday, August 26, 2018


It is with deep regret and extreme sadness that we report our friend and fellow handicapper Scott Harris has passed away. He left us on Saturday morning. Arrangements are pending but we understand he'll probably be at Evergreen on Preston Highway. 

Handicapping Heroes will not be the same without our friend. We will continue with Nashawn (Hollywood)..another good friend of Scott's...offering his selections here weekly and on the radio, along with Archie and I. May God accept Scott into his loving arms. His pain and suffering is over. We will miss our friend.

Scott was the one who came up with the idea for Handicapping Heroes. He was proud of what we and he did here and, even in the final days, was planning ahead for the site and talking with me about some of the things he wanted to do and explore when Churchill's September meet came along. He was an inspiration to me, Archie and many others with his battling, positive spirit and outlook on life.

He is survived by his wife Jamie, daughter Angel and a son. 

Scott Harris. Gone at 44. 

The song clip below is for you, buddy: 

There's A Place In The World For A Gambler

-- Paulie

The Handicappers gave you a total six different race selections yesterday at Saratoga. I handicapped Races 8-11 and Archie did Races 10-13.

Archie had 16 runners compete for the money. Out of those, he had three winners and two shows. He picked the early Pick 3 in the sequence. That paid $979. He had a 25% in the money percentage. Archie ends up with 14 points.

Paulie also gave you 16 selections. He had three winners, a second and three thirds. That's a 43% "in the money" percentage. He also produced an exacta, trifecta and superfecta. Paulie takes the day's competition with 23 points. 

If you had taken Paulie and Archie's picks and played the Pick 4 for races 8-11, you would have hit it for $2741. It would have cost you $80. That's a pretty nice return on investment. 



  1. Beautiful song. RIP Scott.

  2. I miss you dad!! Paul he thought so much of you and valued the friendship you guys had!!


We recently opened up the site to comments. You know the rules...keep it clean, no bots or spam and don't trash anyone. It's provisional...if it gets stupid, I'll shut down the comments again.
