McGoey magic touches TwinSpires Player’s Pool
Fresh off his second consecutive Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge victory,
Patrick McGoey helped TwinSpires.com players have a big victory of their own, as
he was one of two handicapping champions that were part of the
Pool team that scooped the Pick 6 on Saturday at Aqueduct.

Director of Marketing Ed DeRosa completed the team, which wagered $21,704 on the
sequence that returned $271,487: $86,496 for each of three perfect tickets plus
$169 for each of 71 consolation (5/6) payoffs.
This was McGoey’s first Player’s Pool as panelist, but he is no stranger to
big scores — having won $270,600 in the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge
and $255,341 when defending his crown this year. Both he and Beychok will
participate in the National Handicapping Championship next month in Las Vegas.
“Access to the handicapping insights of Michael Beychok and Ed DeRosa, a big
bankroll, and a little bit of luck makes the TwinSpires.com Player’s Pool a must
play,” McGoey said. “I can’t wait to help TwinSpires.com players take down
another Pick 6.”
There was a $76,369 carryover going into the Saturday Pick 6, and bettors
wagered an additional $321,303, meaning there was $317,346 available to players
after takeout, and the TwinSpires.com Player’s Pool won 85.5 percent of that
