The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Top Turf Teddy — The “Worst Stinkin Bet of the Day” for Saturday, December 7, 2019, a date that will always live in infamy, will be in the 10th Race at Aqueduct, the Cigar Mile. As close as the numbers came up for the top 3 contenders, with 5-Maximum Security on top when the last keystroke was entered, must make 6-Spun to Run the worst of the day. For this nut job, in a nut shell, 6-Spun to Run came up short against 5-Maximum Security in the Haskell due to inactivity, but today, based solely on the past performance record is in tip top shape, and no reason he can’t prevail. Both trained by “players,” and adding Irad Ortiz, Jr., who adds 5 lengths to a horses performance, Big Ted must surmise that…….. 6-Spun to Run is – The “Worst Stinkin’ Bet of the Day” 5-Maximum Security Forget the rest. TED’S TOP 3 FIGURES: 5-Maximum Security 5.20 6-Hard Spun 5.39 1-Whitmore 5.95

  1. TTT,
    I agree with your top three, but sure would like to see the grid with ratings for every horse in the field.

    What does it mean when the TTT values are so close?

  2. Dear Indulto:

    Just saw this comment today, 12/12. When the TTT numbers are close, my confidence level is low with respect to investing in a particular runner. The larger the gap between the top horse and the 2nd horse the greater the confidence level. When this occurs, and the odds are high, I put my dancing shoes on and do the frug.
