November 12, 2017

November 12, 2017 - With a fast start and strong finish, veteran contest player C.R. Logan of Lexington captured first prize in the  November 11th Keeneland/Red Mile Tournament of Champions.  Logan posted a score of $98.60 in the tourney, contested with mythical $2 Win/Place wagers on any nine of the eleven races at Churchill Downs, to finish first of 111 players that had qualified at Keeneland or Red Mile tournaments throughout the year.

After six races, Logan had a “perfect score” with winners in four of the races and skips in the other two, with a full holster of five bullets for the remaining races.  He wrapped up the title with a play on 4-1 shot Tapsolute in the 9th, then held on as favorites won the last two races.

For his win, Logan is rewarded with an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas for the March 8-10 Horseplayers World Series, where he will compete with approximately 700 handicappers for an estimated first prize of $250,000.

Joining C.R. in Vegas is the 2nd place finisher, Joe Mulberry of Georgetown.  Mulberry and Logan ran 1-2 most of the day, and Joe finished with a $79.60  bankroll, besting 3rd place finisher Robby Dunn by better than $10.
