We booted home only 2 winners out of the 9 races carded over the sloppy main track at Churchill Downs on Sunday. Ugh.

But we made the most of an “off day” over an “off track.”

We managed to hit 7 Exactas on the day, and they paid the likes of $14.40, $8.00, $18.20, $15.20, $10.10, $9.50, and $24.40 for each $1 played correctly.

We managed a win and a second out of the three “Key Plays of the Day,” as well. Over the year, so far, we have named 268 “Key Plays.” Out of that group, we have won a whopping $45.15% of the time. That horse has “Hit the Board” on 76.49% of the time, too.

We are looking forward to Thanksgiving Week. It is one of my most favorite holidays of the year. My mom, sister and brother-in-law will be traveling to The Louisville Thoroughbred Society to join me in a festive lunch on Thursday. Then, on Friday, I get the opportunity to journey up to Columbus, OH to see my two elder grandsons — Ford and Jack.

Great week ahead.

I hope you have the same kind of plans.

Family week.

See you guys back here on Wednesday.

Until then…

Good Luck & All the Best / Gene
