We finished the Churchill Downs’ Fall Meet with a bit of a flurry, picking 6 winners out of the final day’s card of 11 races. Our two Key Plays of the Day both won, as well.

We finished the meet with a rather modest 33.17% win rate on our top pick, but our Key Plays were the best of the entire year. We finished the meet with picking 15 winners, 3 seconds and 5 thirds in 32 Key Plays. That equals a win rate of 46.,88 and those picks finished “In The Money” on 71.88% of the time.

Hope you had a chance to play along with us for some of the meet. Hope, even more, we helped with a few winners along the way.

We will motor on up to Turfway Park on start our selections over the new Tapeta racing surface when that meets opens soon.

Until then, we hope you stay safe and have a wonderful time.
