Random Musical Racing Picks of the Day: 8th January

As pleasant as your air-condition going bust on a 40 degree day

They were going off at Gilgandra on Sunday when Notabadidea walked in with the Cup

Alright everyone, on this the second Saturday of 2022, Crazy Craig is getting a well deserved/earned rest after putting in the hard yards over the Festive period, culminating in his outstanding performance on New Years’ Day, and the word I received from my Spanish colleague Mr Alfonse is that Craig celebrated by throwing his phone in the Mitchell River, going to the Telstra shop and demanding a new one, then he stole a few of Crazy Colin’s tomatoes while Colin looked on from his window.

No wonder they’re both crazy.

So let’s cut straight to the chase with a couple of Musical selections, and with the Magic Millions only a week away, I’ve sifted through the boring arse form guide for this Saturday, and for absolutely no reason, this week’s song of choice of is from the Great White North – Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot:


Random The Hooters Pick: And We Danced (No.9, Barrier 4) in Race 3 at Rosehill (SR3), 1:35pm AEDT

1500m Fillies & Mares BM78 Handicap

Trainer: Chris Waller, Jockey: Jay Ford, 53kg

Via Philadelphia, PA:

AND WE DANCED, like a wave on the ocean, romanced!

We were liars in love, AND WE DANCED!

Swept away for a moment by chance

And we danced, danced, and danced!


Random Sir Elton John Pick: Sir Rocket (No.2, Barrier 9) in Race 2 at the Gold Coast (OR2), 12:43pm AEST

1200m Magic Millions Country Cup

Trainer: Michael Costa, Jockey: Ryan Maloney, 56kg

And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
‘Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh, no, no, no….
I’M A ROCKET MAN!
ROCKET MAN, burning out his fuse up here alone!


Random AC/DC Pick: Dirty Deeds (No.3, Barrier 1) in Race 5 at Caulfield (MR5), 3:05pm AEDT

1800m BM70 Richard Platt Handicap

Trainer: Simon Zahra, Jockey: Josh Richards (a2), 61kg

Remember, that’s Richard Platt, not Richard ‘Tricky Dick’ Pratt, the late owner of VISY.

And remember….

If you got a lady and you want her gone
But you ain’t got the guts.
She keeps naggin’ at you night and day
Enough to drive you nuts.
Pick up the phone, leave her alone
It’s time you made a stand.

For a fee, I’m happy to be
Your back-door man!

DIRTY DEEDS (done dirt cheap)!

DIRTY DEEDS (done dirt cheap)!

DIRTY DEEDS (done dirt cheap)!

Dirty deeds and they’re done dirt cheap!
Dirty deeds and they’re done dirt cheap!


Let’s hope these horses perform half as well as some of these songs did on the charts!
