An OK Day handicapping Churchill Saturday's card, but I ultimately fell short on the goal of hitting the late Pick 4. 

I gave you 16 horses to consider in Races 8-11, I had three winners, two seconds and three thirds. That's a 50% in the money number. I filled eight of the 12 payable slots.--good for a 66% success rate. 

(Honestly, I made my money yesterday on Race 5 yesterday.  I loved Parlance, with Leparoux riding for Steve Asmussen and he won convincingly. That $60 investment ($20 WPS) brought me back $212 and paid for my Pick 4 foolishness. 

RACE 8 -- EPICENTER (3-1) knocked me out of the Pick 4 early. A wire-to-wire win for Joel Rosario and Asmussen. I had SEAL BEACH, who ran a good second. 

RACE 9 -- GIRL WITH A DREAM was sent off at even money and got it done for Rosario again, this time with Brad Cox training. I also had PIPELINE GIRL, who ran third. 

RACE 10 -- SCONSIN scratched and that was my top pick in the Dream Supreme Stakes. I did have BELL'S THE ONE,(4/5) who nudged out CLUB Car, who I also had. Corey Lanerie won on his 47th. birthday for Neil Pessin. I also had FRANK'S ROCKETTE who ended up third. 

RACE 11 -- CALL ME MIDNIGHT (2-1) ran down ALMANZO to win the final. I had both. James Graham on board for J. Keith Desormeaux. I also had QUICK TO BLAME who gathered show money. 

The Pick 4 paid a paltry $30.65 on the .50 cent ticket. 

We'll give it a "go" next week.
