TIME TO POST IT AGAIN
What a great day for The Wizard, and therefore the world.
6 rides for 4 wins, including the Caulfield Stakes and the feature Caulfield Guineas, and throw in the 3rd for Superstorm in the Toorak, and Zebrowski running 2nd in the Herbert Power.
Arcadia Queen in that Caulfield Stakes… Talk about sticking gelignite in the Cox Plate markets with the way she laughed at Russian Camelot.
He has thoroughly stuck it right up the clacker of a few chirpy Victorians who had the gall, THE GALL, to doubt W.Pike.
THEY AREN’T CHIRPING TONIGHT.
On another note, what a day out for a piss-up at Ascot.
You definitely won’t believe me when I tell you I ended up with Darren McAuliffe in the Stone Motherless watching the 3YO Classic.
I can sum up what he was saying when Clairvoyance loomed up to Gemma’s Son on the turn.
Windstorm in the Weekend Hussler Stakes at Caulfield – WINNER
Every man, woman, child and their dog, was on Windstorm, and every man, woman, child and their dog had a collect on Windstorm.
Gave the entire field 10 lengths at the start, but was still way too good.
It turned out to be the start of what was some kind of a day for Pikey….. It remains to be seen if Windstorm will have his talents inevitably wasted in a Golden Eagle.
Wild Ruler in the Roman Consul Stakes at Randwick – WINNER
Alright, that’s the barrier trial done, when is Wild Planet racing again?
Ain’tnodeeldun in the Hill Smith Stakes at Morphetville – WINNER
He didn’t take the offer from the dealer, and he’s ended up with…
Miss Frost in Race 8 at Ascot – 3rd
Good thing I took both Chantorque and Miss Frost straight out, instead of going for the quinella.
I would’ve wound up claiming the fabled Waterford TAB quinella – 1st and 3rd.
And if you don’t believe I was at Ascot…. GET A LOAD OF THE RACE WINNER.
Crazy Craig’s Lucky Lips Tip Of The Day
Cherry Tortoni in the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick – 7th
I received a telegram on my phone from Crazy Craig at circa 2pm AWST.
“Cherry Tortoni has a heart as BIG AS A PEA.”
A harsh piece of criticism previously reserved for Clan O’Sullivan in a Golden Slipper.
Nevertheless, the old Cherry got popped – He had all the room in the world in the home straight, thanks to a fairly decent ride from Ryan Maloney, but he had one clear disadvantage.
He’s a Victorian racing at Randwick.
Should have just dumped him at Wodonga.
Craig, as they say in Monopoly, do not pass go, do not collect $200.
