The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Top Turf Teddy — The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day” will be in the 7th Race at Delta Downs, in Vinton, Louisiana at 5 Furlongs.

Although I analyze races around the country 7 days a week, looking for love, it is difficult for me to pitch woo on Monday and Tuesday at this time of year.  Although rarely wagering on races with low purse money, as my win ratio is in direction proportion to that level, it is rarer still that you hear me refer to these animals, as pigs, rats or goats, which is extremely disrespectful, and continue to maintain that there are no bad horses, only bad people.

Getting to terrible Tuesday’s “Ratfest Creature Feature,” trainer Cowboy Calhoun sends out 3-Rumandice, who took 10 tries to break her maiden at Churchill Downs in June, then took 3 months off and was distanced in September return, then showed signs of life across the border in Indiana in October.  Looking for another improvement, and since the race won’t be run until after the cocktail hour has begun, it may be appropriate as a hunch, if nothing else, and I may be drunk enough to put down a sprog or two, while whistlin’ Dixie slobbering over my Budweiser.  If you can’t wait for Wednesday, send it in on……..
