How much did the Star Tribune's Johnny Love win on that Pick 6?
July 26, 2018 — 12:13pm
Canterbury Park recently put out a video featuring Star Tribune handicapper Johnny Love, in which he talks about everything from how he makes his picks to his previous career as a professional wrestler to his biggest win as a horseplayer. (Yes, it's a very healthy five-figure payout. No, it wasn't at Canterbury.)
And there was the time he did have a Pick-4 ticket in Canterbury selections for the Star Tribune, which included a high-paying longshot in one of the four races that he needed to get right.
"The ticket only paid $700-some because so many people played my ticket," Love said. "I did get some hate e-mails because people were upset that I put my picks] in the newspaper."
(Translation for non-horseplayers: if Love had kept his horses to himself, there would have been more money for fewer winners.)

We can debate how much attention we should pay to 12-year-olds playing baseball. But we can't argue about the joy Jameson Kuznia's showed after his home run sent Coon Rapids to the Little League World Series.
You knew it was only a matter of time before the first bizarre incident took place involving automated ball and strike calls. But did you expected it to involved Viola, the MVP of the 1987 World Series?
