Keying On Keeneland Pays Dividends (4/23/12)

Apr 23rd, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks

The Spring meet at Keeneland is always one of the most challenging experiences a handicapper can have.  So, what’s the key to winning there — finding horses who like the local surface and placing bets on the connections that win there (e.g. Assmussen, Leparaux, etc.).  Using that strategy, here are my stats for the 7 cards I handicapped on weekends since opening day:

  • 21/70 (+$55.30: $2.79 ROI)
  • Best Bets: 5/12 (+10.80: $2.90 ROI)

In addition, I listed 9 pick 3′s (two over $600) and 3 pick 4′s worth $1,000, $3,000 and $5500 respectively.  I hope this bodes well for Churchill Downs and the days leading up to the Kentucky Derby.  Here’s to a successful Triple Crown handicapping season and thanks to all my friends and followers for a great year so far!
