Handicapping Analysis for Raceday January 11, 2009

Santa Anita Race 8, The Santa Ysabel G3, 1 1/16 mile on fake dirt for 3 YO fillies.

Kids are great. The Little Turk is my constant companion. When he's not reading Geronimo Stilton books or playing games, he handicaps horses. His father, The Turk, spends an hour or so on the graded stakes races that I like to handicap and post blog entries about. The Little Turk likes to spend about 1 minute looking at the names, the biggest Beyer's, and then boom....The pick.

Little Turk nailed Century Park and a $51.40 win bet. The third Baffert horse in the race, and the only one the Big Turk didn't take too serious, I'm glad that Little Turk was there to help me pad the family Twin Spires account balance.

As I said earlier today, All, or nothing, will be revealed today in the 3 YO fillies division. I'm leaning towards nothing.

Great handicapping, little Turk!

Dana: Mrs. Turk and I came up with the idea, Little Turk gave the costume soul!

Jessica: The Little Turk shrugs his shoulders. It's old hat to him.

Superfecta: Little Turk acknowledges the acolades. He's a Humble Handicapper.
