PSA: Crazy Craig and his crap Picks are having a week off

Which is a polite way of me saying he’s been dropped due to his shithouse form.

Anyway, CC has notified yours truly via electronic telegram that he’s priming himself for the Magic Millions + the Perth Cup replay next weekend, so he’ll sit out this weekend, which is nothing short of boring, and in the meantime, here’s the chance for me to announce that in 2023, the Scratchie King of Bairnsdale will have a new luck-related Elvis Presley theme song, succeeding Good Luck Charm…

From his 1962 film Kid Galahad, I GOT LUCKY.

And you’ll be hearing that again when Crazy Craig breaks his losing streak in mid-June.

In the meantime, what an absolute tragic shitshow of a race that Perth Cup was.

I remember the 2008 Perth Cup was horrible with the 5 horses going down just after the jump, which didn’t play a part in the race being slashed from 3200m to 2400m, but the events of Sunday afternoon would be a close second for the simple fact that the race was abandoned for the first time in history.

Adding to it, I was thoroughly ****in’ annoyed with The West Australian and Perth Now, plus the ABC, who decided to show the replay of the incident in their respective stories to generate a bit of shock value and outrage.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR – THERE IS A DAMN GOOD REASON WHY SKY RACING AND RACING.COM NEVER SHOW REPLAYS OF RACE FALLS, ESPECIALLY FATAL RACE FALLS.

TAKE. THE. HINT.

Arseholes.
