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

Sunday, October 7, 2018


The Handicappers tried their best to decipher a very challenging late Pick 4 at Keeneland Saturday and had a bit of success...but, as can happen early in a meet with so many talented trainers, jockeys and horses on the premises...things can sometimes not go as envisioned. They were unable to bring down the Pick 4. A huge payout there of over $15.000.00 and horses that scored at 70-1 and 23-1.

Bombs exploded in the ninth and tenth races that we weren't able to come up with and those who were lucky enough to successfully predict them got rewarded handsomely. It's horseracing. It can and does happen.

Here's how they fared:

PAULIE had 14 of his picks go forth (two scratches) and out of those he had two winners, a second and two thirds. That's a 36% "in the money" percentage. Add an exacta to his totals but no Pick 3's or Pick 4. PAULIE ends the day with 12 points. 

HOLLYWOOD saw 15 of his selections get a call. He had two firsts, two seconds and a third. A 33% "in the money" percentage. Give him two exactas as well. HOLLYWOOD takes second in the day's point totals with 15 points.

ARCHIE had no scratches and all 16 of his picks contested the distances. Two winners for him, with a place and three shows. He ends up with a 38% "in the money" percentage. He adds an exacta and trifectas to his successes. ARCHIE narrowly takes the day's competition with 16 points. 

Keeneland is tough, no doubt about it. Too early yet to determine any tracks biases, hot jockeys or sizzling trainers. We'll keep firing, though.


ARCHIE   143
PAULIE    135
