The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Top Turf Teddy – The Prince of Pace

The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day” for Saturday, January 25, 2020, will be in the 2nd Race at Fair Grounds for Maidens.

Wisdom from the Weeds:       “Try silence; it truly is golden.””

If any of you guys are like me, in this simulcast age, you may often enjoy the Sport of Kings in your underwear with a beer between your legs, playing on your laptop, or other video device of your choice.  The live pre-race, paid by-the-word, talking heads come on,  and you listen, hoping to get some first-hand relative information.  It never comes, and all it does, whether you realize it or not, is distract you from the true task at hand, handicapping the race.  Garbage in garbage out so they say.  Urge my fellow railbirds to use data based on empirical evidence; it is out there.  You can’t control the dog barking, or your wife screaming at the kids, but you can control your electronic device.  With boldness and purpose, hit the mute button, and proceed with your sworn duty; picking a stinkin’ winner.  Silence is truly golden.

Ate snakes in the Army, have had a buffalo burger, venison burger, and up here in Maine, a moose burger, but until today, have never had an 8-Oxburger.  Second back from June; ran against better in lengthy losing attempts; always there or thereabouts.  Looks like a tasty meal to me.  Pass the ketchup.
