The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Top Turf Teddy — The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day” for Thursday, December 5, 2019, will be in the 3rd Race at Aqueduct. Todays Tip from Teddy: “Don’t Bet it All” So, heard rumors that some people want my curriculum vitae? Received a 4-year degree in Horsicological Studies at the Big A, my Alma Mater, then received my Doctorate at Belmont Park, with a thesis entitled “The Effects of Alcohol Consumption Upon Pari-Mutuel Investing” (available upon request).

Learned much at the big “A” and “B” about horses, and about life. For example, business math. It wasn’t long before I was able to figure out within a few cents how much was needed in gas money to get back to Westchester, including the tolls, and the traditional purchase of one of those undercooked pretzels at the exit gate. Embarrassed to say that before I got it down, had to sign to get across the bridge on more than one occasion.

Have a real “Stink Bomb” for you today, 6-Enola Gay. Ever have a “feeling” about a horse? It’s one of my favorite methods to lose money on a Thursday afternoon Big Ted has such a feeling about this little filly, and I expect she will be a major player in 2020, just hope she does not go the way of Kamala Harris. Guess what I’m trying to tell you is that based upon what this group has shown thus far, a feeling is pretty much all you have to go by.

After breaking maiden in her initial flight, in her next race, Lezcano took her into the parking lot in a race with extremely fast partials. Looking forward to watching her stretch out here, and believe she will jiggity, joggity, jiggity all the way home, just like the last little piggy in the children’s rhyme. But wait, there is more info for you. Heard the jockeys may all be hung over, so tread lightly, as they had a big celebration due to the fact that the Ortiz brothers flew south for the winter. Only at HRI can you get this kind of vital information.
