Crazy Craig’s Picks of the Day: 21st January

Based on a series of plausible events in a regional Victorian town

I swear that GIF used to work properly… Now it’s just two guys re-enacting Deliverance.

So moving on from the boredom of last week, as Buster Bash managed to win the Perth Cup after wiping out the field in the original running when I backed him, we got to through the re-running of the Magic Millions yesterday, and in the process we discovered that the QLD Racing Minister is named Grace Grace.

I suppose we’ve all got a story like that, after all, I went to a school with a bloke called William Williams.

Then we got the news that Racing Victoria want to move the Cox Plate to the end of November, a move that absolutely has nothing to do with seeing shadows emanating from the wallet of Racing NSW

The other amazing story was the news that the great form analyst Deane Lester had been diagnosed with cancer, and RSN had set up a GoFundMe page hoping to raise $100,000 for his treatment..

It’s currently at $240,000.

I suppose if anyone in the racing game would know how to make punters’ money start flying in, Deane Lester would be that person.

So it’s on to Crazy Craig, and the highlight of Crazy Craig’s week was his belated 2nd placing for Yellow Brick in the 3YO Guineas yesterday…

Or so he tells me.

Regardless, here’s Elvis Presley!


Crap Crazy Pick No.1: Looks Like Elvis (No.1, Barrier 4) in Race 6 at Randwick (SR6) 3:20pm AEDT

1400m Listed Carrington Stakes

Trainer: Jarrod ‘Stone Cold Steve’ Austin, Jockey: Brett Prebble, 58kg

Hello hello everyone it’s Craaaazy Craig TBFB, Scratchie King of Bairnsdale, and it’s very rare I get to do this, given Elvis Presley is disgracefully associated with yours truly as my theme tune, but I’ve got a little story for you, as told by the father of Lisa Marie Presley, and it goes like this…

As the snow flies…

On a cold and grey Chicago Morning, a poor little baby child is born IN THE GHETTO…

In the Ghetto!

Because if he Looks Like Elvis, HE SOUNDS LIKE ELVIS!


Crap Crazy Pick No.2: The Lady Is A Vamp (No.8, Barrier 5) E/W in Race 7 at Ascot (PR7), 4:15pm AWST (7:15)

1000m 60+ Rating Graduation Handicap

Trainer: Lou Luciani, Jockey: Holly Watson (a1.5), 57kg

She likes the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
She’s broke and it’s ok
Hates California, it’s cold and it’s damp
That’s why the LADY IS A VAMP


Not that yours truly be able to watch any of these Crap Crazy Craig picks go around, because I’ll be out at Cockburn in boiling weather playing in the State Singles…

Then again, the Crap Picks will have a better percentage chance of winning than I will of winning my section and making it to Sunday.
