Well, we handicapped 20 races on Saturday for your viewing pleasure. Out of that group, we managed 6 winners, 10 seconds and 10 thirds. Ugh.

We got the day off to a rousing start at Oaklawn Park, to be sure. Had 4 winners in the first 5 races and cashed exactas in the same number.

Unfortunately for us, we blanked on the next 7, although we did manage to cash 3 exactas on the way out the door.

At Turfway Park, we hit the first race and our top pick returned us money in 5 of the 8 races. Yet, we managed only 1 winner, and 2 seconds  out of 5 “Key Plays of the Night.” 

We end a rather dismal week on the handicapping front. Hope to do better this week, as we gear up for the opening of the premier, private membership Louisville Thoroughbred Society. And, I will be on hand this coming Saturday to offer some hints and tips for huge Louisiana Derby Day card at the Fair Grounds.

Join up. Join us. And?

Come see me.

Until then, we safe.

Good Luck & All the Best / Gene
