Churchill Downs Results From 6/13/20

A good day for racing but the results left a bit to be desired,  as I took on the late Pick 4 at Churchill yesterday. Favorites fell by the wayside in each of the final four (8-11) races and that resulted in the whopping $5625 payout for the .50 late Pick Four.

No, I didn't have it.

On the day, we did have some successes. Out of the 16 horses I gave you Saturday, we had two winners, four seconds and two thirds. That's eight out of 16 "in the money" for a not bad at all 50% percentage. When you consider that there were 12 payouts in the four races for win, place and show wagering, I filled 66% of them. 

Race Eight at least got us off on the right foot when #2 Dance Rhythms came flying at the end to best the field and won for us at 11-1 odds. A nice $23 payout. (That finished an earlier Pick 3 I tried and hit that returned a sweet $250 for $32 invested). 

Race Nine got me, though. The #10 horse Sir Alfred Jones zipped by one of my picks, Major Attraction, to finish first and return $18.80 at 8-1 odds. Bye-bye Pick 4.

Race Ten produced another bomb when lightly regarded (by the bettors) Sconsin upset the field with a win at 20-1 odds, paying $41 to win. Miss T Two, one of my picks chased her home but could not catch her. 

Race 11 at least gave us a winner, when #12 Admissions Office beat odds-on favorite Arklow to capture the final. A $9.20 return to win at 4-1 odds in the Grade III Louisville Stakes. 

The Belmont Stakes next week, so I'll definitely have picks for that. I'll see if a Pick 4 can be built around it,and I'll check out what should be a good Churchill card and see if I want to fire at that also.  

See you then,
