By Top Turf Teddy — The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day” will be in the 1st Race at Aqueduct, at what I’ve always called the weirdest distance, 6-1/2 furlongs; just remember, it’s the Preakness less 6/16ths for those with an advanced math background. I’ve cursed that last 1/16 of a mile so many times with language John Pricci does not allow, but it has also rewarded me handsomely as well.
Today’s “Worst” is 6-Shannon’s Girl, who was involved in a claiming “frenzy” this summer, and it seems that Circle B Racing wants to cash out, with this noticeable drop. You know, they got bills to pay, mouths to feed, kids to put through college. My motto is with horses dropping, give them the benefit of the doubt (especially towards the end of the year); they seldom disappoint me. Unfortunately, it has been this jaded railbird’s experience that this theory does not apply with humans, where my motto is think the worst, and hope for the best. In any event her empirical information dwarfs the others, and I challenge the crowd to give me 2-1.
Happy December from Top Turf Teddy, whose horses do all the talking…..
