The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Players know when the four year old maidens line up for today’s sixth race on the turf that the returning Oglethorpe (2-1) is fastest on the Thoro-Graph scale.

And most are aware that trainer Danny Gargan is profitable coming off layups of 90+ days. He is a worthy favorite.

However, Most Wanted Man (8-1) offers extraordinary value at early line odds.

Making his first start off the Mike Maker claim, he was asked to go 12 furlongs, made a mid-race mover to take a narrow lead then tired, a function of dynamics and the situational timing.

Now returning to a suitably shorter trip, and having drawn pole position with Tyler, he’s well spotted to make amends with anticipated improvement.

Towards that end, ‘Man’ worked five furlongs in 1:00 1/5, third fastest of 30 workers the week of MAR 11. Will the Maker/Tyler team win their third race together from five tries? It should pay to find out.

Taking Most Wanted Man to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Oglethorphe and Chad Brown AE Bosque Redondo (7-2).

  1. A Happy St. Patricks to you my friend of Italian descent. We are all Irish for today no matter how many vowels in the name. Corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes, followed by a pint of Guiness Zero will do me well today. Soda bread and raisins as well mind you. Today I am taking on the “Master Capper” with Chad Brown’s number 8 runner. In the Irish mindset of being Irish frugal, I will wager I can best you with a “bet a little, win a lot” triple ticket for a buck. I’ll wager two fifty cent tri tickets on 8-3-1 and 8-1-3. Should I fail, and the 3 and 1 best me, I’ll wear the tille of “Master Crapper” for the day. Safe journey, McD

  2. About the Irish

    (Source Unknown)

    What shall I say about the Irish?
    The utterly impractical, never predictable
    Something irascible, quite inexplicable Irish.
    Strange blend of shyness, pride and conceit,
    And stubborn refusal to bow in defeat.
    He’s spoiling and ready to argue and fight,
    Yet the smile of a child fills his soul with delight.
    His eyes are the quickest to well up in tears,
    Yet his strength is the strongest to banish your fears.
    His faith is as fierce as his devotion is grand,
    And there’s no middle ground on which he will stand.
    He’s wild and he’s gentle.
    He’s good and he’s bad.
    He’s proud and he’s humble.
    He’s happy and he’s sad.
    He’s in love with the ocean, the earth and the skies.
    He’s enamored with beauty wherever it lies.
    He’s victor and victim, a star and a clod,
    But mostly he’s Irish in love with his God.

    3 Guinness drinking leprachaun cousins, one from England, one from Ireland, and the third living in Scottland, all stop in a pub together for a pint after playing a round of golf. Each cousin spots a fly on the top of their pint glass. The Brit calls out to the Barkeep “There’s a fly in my stout and I would like to have a replacement glass please. The Irishman simply moves the bug to the far end on his glass, and drinks down a good half of his glass and then calls out to the Barkeep “There’s a ‘bugger’ in my pint as well. Barkeep and I will have another glass as well.” Well the Scottsman, not to be out done, he simply reaches down into the suds in his glass, grabs the bug by his wings, and proceeds to scream out “Spit it out ya’ bastard! Spit it out!
