Crazy Craig’s Picks of the Day Review: 11th September

Another glorious day of complete and utter failure for Crazy Craig, as the Pick of the Day Mankayan came into $1.80 in Race 2 at Kembla, and wound up becoming the latest one-paced stayer from Britain to be imported into Australia by Australian Bloodstock…

Boys, leave it to Toni Galati if you want to get a decent spud in this country.

On the other hand, wasn’t it hilarious watching Anamoe win the Run To The Rose with absolutely no worries whatsoever, a mere day after Crazy Craig decided he wasn’t going to back him because his name started with A.

You know why Anamoe starts with A?


Pick of the Day: Mankayan in Race 2 at Kembla Grange – 2nd

Australian Bloodstock should change his name to Wankayan after that crap effort…

$1.80, Every bloody hope in the world, and yet he spent half the damn straight bobbing up and down like an apple at a carnival game and wound up being comfortably beaten by Accountability.

What an absolute stinker….. Dare I say he had a HEART AS BIG AS A PEA.

Value Pick of the Day: Aegon in the Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington – 11th and bled from one nostril

At the time of watching the race I described Aegon has having produced the most pea hearted finish to a sporting event I’ve seen since Geelong the previous evening, but the post-race comment from Luke Currie confirmed that Aegon had bled from one nostril, which provided a bit more clarity as to why the Kiwi dropped like a stone and went from presenting very nicely approaching the 300m, to beating one runner home.

So with that crushing blow out of the way, Incentivise fired the latest shot in the Spring war, and he answered any questions about whether or not he could translate some of those monster wins in Queensland to a Weight For Age Group 1, and it’s a good thing this country’s Weight For Age stocks are utterly crap, because not only did he win, he showed a ton of guts leading all the way and beating off the likes of Tofane, Mo’unga and Sir Dragonet, all of them multiple Group 1 winners in their own right.

The last Banana Bender who came to Melbourne and raced like that was the one and only Vo Rogue, although as I mentioned in Friday’s preamble, Incentivise will now have to overcome the weight of recent history and become the first Makybe Diva Stakes winner since Weekend Hussler in 2008, but based on the context of this spring with the limited international and interstate horses coming in, you’d think he should be able to comfortably win the Turnbull Stakes in 3 weeks, or the Caulfield Cup if Peter Moody dares to tackle it before the Melbourne Cup and risk a weight penalty.
