How’d Gene’s Picks Turn Out on Tuesday?

Yesterday, we released Gene’s first round of handicapping picks in The Pressbox’s history. I have to say, I’m pretty impressed.

Gene bet a total of $708.00 today, and ended up earning $1,674.15. That yielded an impressive $966.15 for the day. Not bad, Geneus.

Gene’s picks for Churchill Downs turned out pretty well today.

That exacta in Race Five turned out pretty nicely, huh?

We’ll have Gene’s picks, along with Dave Welch’s, for tomorrow’s racing at Churchill up for your viewing pleasure tomorrow morning. Good luck, and happy betting!

The horse broke well today,” Gaffalione said. “I had the horse inside, Dunph, going to the lead and then (Gun It) showed a little bit of speed. When I saw they were intent on going I just tried to get him back and got him to relax. He came back to me nicely and settled well down the backside. Got a little keen going into the far turn and wanted to move a little early. But I didn’t want to take too much away from him so I tried to sit as long as I could. He was waiting on horses down the lane but I kept him at task and there was plenty of horse there.”

“Mark (Casse, the trainer) and his team have done a great job,” Gaffalione said. “They’ve had a ton of confidence in this horse the whole way. It’s just an honor to be able to ride the horse. He’s just so professional, trains great and he’s a pleasure to be around.”
