Crazy Craig’s Picks of the Day Review: 24th-25th September

Completely forgetting Coolangatta’s win in the Moir….

The Victorians flogged the New South Welshmen in the AFL Grand Final, and they also smashed them in the Golden Rose on their own dungheap

To be fair to In Secret, I thought he was toast in the straight when he took a while to pick up, and eventually he did, but Jacquinot had turned into a giant killing machine.

Meantime, Justin McInerney couldn’t get a win with the Swans on Saturday, but Mcinerney won the Million Dollar Chase at Wenworth Park, and despite Fox League’s best efforts to broadcast it, nobody gave a shit:

And today, it was Alligator Blood’s turn in the sun in the Underwood Stakes, as basically every Cox Plate contender not named Anamoe took an absolute ball-tearing in every possible way, especially Zaaki, who looked as flat as the Earth before the 16th century.

But the important piece of news of the weekend, Crazy Craig found another winner with inspiration from Elvis Presley, who seems to be his GOOD LUCK CHARM!

Pick of the Day: Fire in Race 10 at Rosehill = 4th


“The gelding, which was in an adjoining stall to Kibspay, which became fractious in the barriers, was examined by the Club’s Veterinary Officer and deemed suitable to race.”

“Over the concluding stages could not be fully ridden out to the finish when awkwardly placed close to the heels of Fox Fighter (S. Clipperton). S. Clipperton was advised to exercise more care.”


King Charles Omen Bet: All The King’s Men in Race 6 at Belmont = WINNER ($3.50w/$1.50p)

Absolute walk in the park 1st Up




What a performance, straight down the outside without any form of hindrance 1st Up, and I would also add another reason why All The King’s Men was an omen bet on Saturday…

The great former East Fremantle footballer Glenn ‘Buck’ Rogers, father of Mitch Duncan, is in the ownership of All The King’s Men, so he had a fair old day out seeing his son win another flag with Geelong, and not even 30 minutes later he got a winner in at Belmont.

Unfortunately though it wasn’t all golden this weekend for the Rogers family, as Bucko’s old club seemed to forget they were playing Claremont in a WAFL Preliminary Final today, and they were belted accordingly by the Tigers.

Oh well, two outta three ain’t bad.

Value Pick: Revolutionary Miss E/W in Race 6 at Sandown = 7th

How about that for a finish – 4 horses within a neck of Waltz On By and she still held on.

Not that Revolutionary Miss was ever going to feature in the finish.
