The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day“ for Monday, December 30, 2019, will be in the 4th Race at Aqueduct..
Today’s Tip from Teddy: “Don’t Bet on Losers”
Do you know what time it is boys and girls? It’s quinella time! This being Horseraceinsider, the conscience of thoroughbred racing, it’s also about time somebody queried the NYRA management regarding the quinella. Imagine it would go something like this. “Why do you have a quinella in only the 2nd and 4th race.” Answer: “I don’t know, that’s the way we’ve been doing it forever.” That Wharton business school is obviously not all it’s cracked up to be. Got to love Gulfstream Park for instituting the quinella this year. These bureaucratic bean counters at the NYRA are unable to fathom the intangibles into their bottom line, like customer service, and wagers such as the quinella. Keep up the good work Gulfstream.
The 4th race has a claiming tag of $8,000; they must be emptying out the petty cash fund before the new year. In any event, they all are running with 4 legs and a tail, and will do their best in an effort to stay in the metropolitan area a while longer. There is nowhere to go but up. 7-Stay Fond returned in November with a brief little rest from early August, and should be odds-on today, and need only beat 6-Theodosia for the Goat Gold Medal, or so my figures say. Will be playing my favorite wager, the quinella, as you can’t 7-Stay (alive) Fond at 4-5, 3-2 just won’t do, and you can’t get in line at 1-9. 7-Stay Fond my friend.
