 An interesting day of racing yesterday at Keeneland. The rain never showed up that I had handicapped for , but....out of the 20 horses I gave you, I had three winners, three seconds and two thirds. That's a 40% "in the money" percentage, which is a little lower that I normally hit for. I filled eight of the 12 possible "payout" sports available. 

I've always handicapped races differently when I expect the track to go "sloppy" and the turf wet. That's what I did yesterday, but, mother nature had different ideas....keeping it dry.

In RACE 7, we saw one of my picks ROC'S PRINCESS take them from gate to wire to win at a very nice 19-1 odds. That was a nice start to the Pick 3 and Pick 4.

RACE 8 was the Fayette and MR FREEZE get the win. He wsn't one of my original top four picks, but I moved him up and used him when scratches occured in the race. The winner went off at 3/2 odds. 

The Queen Elizabeth Cup in RACE 10 went to HARVEY'S LIL GOIL who pulled away in the turf stretch and won at 7/2 odds. She helped me hit the Pick 3 for Races 7,8,9 that paid a nice $141.60 on the .50 cent wager. 

RACE 11 was a major upset with a 29-1 shot (CRITICAL THREAT) getting a perfectly timed ride from Martin Garcia to come storming down the stretch and nosing out my picks, who ran second and third.

If you played the Pick 4 and managed to hit it, you were rewarded with $4681 on a .50 attempt. 

I'll give it a go next Saturday. .
