A beautiful day for racing at Churchill Downs yesterday, but the results didn't turn out very well for my selections yesterday.
Out of the final four races (7-10) on the Saturday cards, I had 16 horses for you to consider. Out of those, I had one winner, two seconds and one third. That's a 25% "in the money' percentage and way below what I normally get. Filling four out of the 12 "payable" spots wasn't much better -- producing a 33% number.
I did hit the 7th. race -- an even money shot in Idol. After that, I did not have the 25-1 shot in Race 8, 6-1 horse in Race 9 nor the 9-2 runner in Race 10.
I guess a lot of "players" were in the same boat with me, the late Pick 4 paid $4686 on the .50 cent wager.
Next week, the Preakness. We'll give it the old college try then.
