The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Top Turf Teddy – The Prince of Pace

The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day” for Sunday, February 23, 2020, will be in the 9th Race at Sunland Park, New Mexico, the Mine That Bird Derby.

Tidbits from Teddy:   “First race may tell you all you need to know.”

Horses run races, and horses win races.  It is my belief that if you idolize a trainer or a jockey you might as well buy some matches and burn your money before you get to the track.  One of my heroes is in the 9th at Sunland, Mike Smith.  Mike traveled 791.9 miles for the 9th race today for a meager $100,000 purse, his only mount; shows how bad the racing has gotten at Santa Anita.  Forgive me Horace; head east old man, before California slides into the ocean…….

The morning line maker at Sunland wears many hats; you can find him selling programs in the afternoon at the main gate.  3-Exaulted, despite being a Maiden against winners, should go off at no better than 6/5.  Geez I hope I’m wrong, Daddy needs a new pair of shoes.  Can find no fault, and will bet on “Exault.”
