We reeled off wins in the first four races on Churchill Downs’ closing day of the abbreviated September race meet, and we looked like we were off to the races.
There’s always a “well,” right?
Well…we managed only one win the rest of the way and that came in the meet’s finale.
Overall, 5 wins on the day and we hit for exactas that returned the likes of $6.40, $8.30, $8.80, $6.20, $32.80, $12.00, $17.70, $30.00 and $18.80 on the day for each $1 played. For those counting at home? That’s 9 exacta wins out of the 10. Not bad.
We finished the meet with our top picks hitting the board a whopping $72.65% of the time. Our top pick won on 37.61% of the occasions. And, our “Key Plays of the Day” won 47.62% of the time and hit the board an amazing 85.72%.
Our “Longshot Specials of the Day” still lag behind a respectable “win rate.” We hit on just 13.33% wins in the 15 selections. But we did hit the board .40% of the time and they rendered some nice exotics.
We will pick back up on Wednesday at Indiana Grand and another great race day with Stakes galore.
Unfortunately, we will not be providing public picks for Keeneland. At this point in time, Keeneland remains the only Kentucky track that we don’t have an agreement with, and I am saddened about that. After all, I grew up there.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
See you Wednesday.
Good Luck & All the Best / Gene
