We had 3 winners on the 10 race Opening Night card at Churchill Downs on Saturday. But?

But…it could have been so much better.

So much better.

Our top pick won three times one the night, but our top selection ran 2nd on five other occasions. Five. 

Our two “Longshot Plays of the Night” both ran well on Saturday night, too. They both finished 2nd, although the first was bet down to favoritism after the race was moved off the grass and five horses were scratched from the event.

Our best wagering event came in the feature and Stakes race. We “coached” you to consider Bodenheimer in all your plays. This one was caught at the wire, but still paid $10.80 for a $2 wager across the board and helped rescue an $18.80 exacta with one of the betting favorites for just a $1 investment.

We will see you back here on Tuesday. It’s Derby Week. It’s Handicapper’s Haven.

Let’s get it going.

Good Luck & All the Best / Gene
