HANDICAPPING HEROES -- CHURCHILL DOWNS -- RESULTS LATE PICK 4 -- 9/15/18
The Handicappers fired away at the late Pick 4 at Churchill Downs and had some nice successes. Although they didn't hit the Pick 4, or either of the pick threes in the sequence, they gave you some nice winners. Race 10 and Brian Hernandez, Jr on Cairo Cat...at 17-1 was the culprit that ruined their Pick 4 party.
Let's see how they did:
ARCHIE saw 15 out of his 16 break from the gate and, out of those, he gave you three winners, four places and one show. That's a 53% "in the money" percentage and he had eight of the possible twelve best finishers innthe four races. Give him three exactas as well. NOT A BAD EFFORT AT ALL FOR THE BREAD GUY, HE ENDS UP WITH 24 POINTS.
HOLLYWOOD had all 16 of his picks run down the stretch and from those he accumulated three winners, four seconds and one show. He hits 50% "in the money numbers. He also gave out three exactas and a trifecta. A NICE RUN FOR HIS MONEY TODAY, OUR APPRENTICE FINISHES WITH 27 POINTS
PAULIE gave you 16 picks and they all got a call. He also had three winners...plus four seconds and two shows for a 57% "in the money" ratio. Out of the 12 possible money spots, he grabbed nine of them. He also gave you three exactas and two trifectas. PAULIE TAKES THE DAY WITH AN IMPRESSIVE 31 POINTS.
Sometimes, we tend to overlook things on a form or sheet that make sense AFTER the race. One could have easily played Cairo Cat in the 10th race. Good jockey, won his last race at Saratoga and turned in a bullet work preparing for this one. The bettors ignored him also, his 8-1 morning line odds drifted up to 17-1. As our co-founder and friend the late Scotty Harris used to say, always watch Brian Hernandez, Jr at Churchill. We watched him yesterday. We watched him beat us.
WE live and learn.
