Yet another coveted Sex Pick gets home in Melbourne, as Race 6 goes to No.9 Big Apple
And it was a 9-6 quinella, which is just a 6-9 if you just flip positions.
So it was a rather quiet day on the Western Front, as Randwick was quickly postponed after they ran Race 1 in 1.19.08, apparently the slowest winning 1200m time at Randwick in living memory (Only 12 seconds slower than the track record), because as is the norm in New South Wales, they have to put people and animals in danger just to find out how unsafe the ground is.
So with most traffic redirected to the major meeting at Caulfield, where Craig Williams stormed in from the Ukraine to win 4 races, and other unique joints like Coonabarabran, Mildura, Mackay and Roebourne for their major meetings, Belmont joined the casualty ward when it was abandoned 10 minutes before Race 1 due to standing water on the track from the repeated downpours in Perth on Friday & Saturday, the Gold Coast was also abandoned due to feeling God’s wrath for the local gay community, which meant that in all, Crazy Colin lost 2 of his 3 picks of the day (Jojo Was A Man & The Spruiker), which were also his two best winning chances, leaving it up to Sigh to try and pull something out in the 7th at The Heath…
She did not.
The Beatles Pick: Jojo Was A Man in Race 8 at Randwick = Postponed
I know the weather has been utterly putrid on the East Coast, but at some point in time the ATC and Racing NSW will stop pumping millions of dollars into McRaces and actually invest it in things that could better serve the wider racing community, like trying to improve drainage on their racecourses so they don’t lose so many meetings every year…
However, I can say with confidence that we’ll all be rotting carcasses before that happens.
Value Pick: Sigh E/W in Race 7 at Caulfield = 7th
I get the feeling that after the horror show that saw her become a moral beaten a few weeks ago, Sigh now hates being squeezed for room more than a West Coast Eagles midfielder, because once again this afternoon she was building nicely into the race on the corner, then got cramped for room in the straight and just totally switched off after that, which was a shame.
Sigh: “Rider Linda Meech reported that the filly was not comfortable racing to the inside of runners and had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the straight. A post‑race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.”
Piss Poor Perth Punting: The Spruiker in Race 8 at Belmont = Postponed
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON… We’ll see if Crazy Colin gets a belated winner with The Spruiker in the HG Bolton Sprint.
