The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Top Turf Teddy – The Prince of Pace

The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day” for Thursday, December 12, 2019, will be in the 3rd Race at Aqueduct for Maidens 3 and up.

Today’s Tip from Teddy:  “Losing Ain’t Funny”

It must be demoralizing and humiliating for a 4-year old horse, in his prime, to still be a Maiden in December.  The fillies want nothing to do with you; older and younger animals laugh behind your back; winning peers have all been taken on vacation to Florida; and the backstretch workers all make the sign of the “L” on their forehead when you come near; forget about getting a carrot.

Today all that ends for 3-Point of Humor, who did not race at 2, and has had 11 tries thus far.

Most of these have run for a tag.  He was dropped in for a $40,000 tag on 3 November and went off as favorite and was soundly defeated.  The crowd abandoned him in his next start on November 21 back up to a Maiden Special Weight (?) where the gate opened and he was $15.80-1.  Hmmmm.  Oh the games people play!  Right back, but the cat’s out of the bag.

Remember, win, place and show, is all you got to know.  Oh, and please, please, please, don’t forget to tell ’em Teddy sent you at the window when playing…..
