By Top Turf Teddy – The Prince of Pace The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day“ for Sunday, December 22, 2019, will be in the 2nd Race at Aqueduct.
Today’s Tip from Teddy: “Win, Place and Show is All You Gots to Know.”
Has anybody ever ridden a motorcycle in the winter? It is bone chilling. It is extremely unpleasant for a jockey coasting along at 40 miles per hour in cold weather on a horse, and is just another unknown factor to add, which is impossible to figure in to your assessment. Might as well try and analyze the effect of the rotation of the earth. However, the weather experts tell me it will be comparatively warm at Aqueduct (my Alma Mater) today, therefore, the Big Apple it is. There is a saying in the Donk barn when one of the animals he trains can’t seem to win; they call that animal Donk’s Donkey. Not sure 1-Matty’s Magnum has yet earned that nom de guerre, but it is now or never; enough is enough. The crowd did not appreciate the drop on 15 November where she lost by less than 2 lengths in an acceptable performance; the drop was effective. Based on this year’s total performance, think the crowd will somewhat ignore her again. A repeat of that last performance puts her in the winner’s circle, and “Matty” will make my wallet “Fatty.”
