We booted home 6 winners on the 12-race card at Churchill Downs’ closing day for the 2021 live racing season.

We had 2 wins and a second in 3 “Key Plays of the Day.

We had a second in two “Longshot Specials of the Day,” and that boosted us to a nice exacta.

We had six modest exactas on the day, as well, that paid the likes of $6.50, $10.60, $8.80, $19.20, $36.10, and $6.10 per each $1 played correctly.

But we missed on the final day Pick 6, what with the mandatory payout. Just couldn’t come up with the 44-to-1 shot in the 8th race — and the 2nd leg of the horizontal play. We went scuba diving with our ticket after that one.

We are looking forward to kicking off this year’s meet at Turfway Park, with the 2nd year over the synthetic Tapeta course.

We will also vary — from time to time — down to the great city of New Orleans and handicap a set or two at one of my most favorite tracks anywhere or everywhere — the Fair Grounds.

Until we meet up again…

Happy trails to you…

Good Luck…

And…

All the Best / Gene
