 Not the best of days at Churchill yesterday in terms of hitting the late Pick 4, but, I had three winners out of the final four races  Race 9 was the fly in the ointment, 13-1 WITEZ skipping down the stretch and knocking off my choice Take Charge Ro

All in all, I had three winners, three places and a show out of the 18 horses I selected yesterday I did have two scratches.. That 38% is a bit lower than I usually score.  Filling seven of the 12 "payable" spots available in the four races is 58..3%, aalso a bit down from previous weeks. 

Here 's how it went: 

RACE 7 did bring my top pick AASR home first at 2-1 and TOP GUNNER, another of my picks, got there in time for third, 

RACE 8 --This was where WITEZ ruined the plans, the Ian Wilkes/Chris Landeros duo won at 13-1. I did get TAKE CHARGE RO for second, but that was it. EMPRESS ELEANOR scratched and maybe affected the way the race was run.

RACE 9 -- I saw it as a three horses race, and one of the , in BELL'S THE ONE (2-1) did get the win over another one I really liked in SCONSIN. No excuses for Sconsin, he dueled in the stretch but was second best.  

RACE 10 -- MINER'S QUEEN (5-1) was a nice pick of mine and took the final race.

The Pick 4 returned $755 on the .50 Pick 4 wager.  A $210 Pick 4 wager  (5x7x3x4) would have captured the prize.  With the scratches, I spent $120 and was done after Race 9.  

The key yesterday would have been just to go very deep in Race 9. I had WITEZ ranked as the seventh best horse in the race, but he proved me wrong. Sometimes, the horses just don't run the way you expect and handicap them to. I guess that's why they call it gambling. 

We'll give it a go next Saturday.

Happy Father's day to all you Dads out there !
