Dominion Day Handicap Changes and Important News for all Bourbon Lovers
The Turk is still looking at the Dominion Day Handicap as a place to make money mid work week.
Woodbine's website lists the following changes for today's race 8 POST TIME is 4:29 ET.
These changes added at 7/1/2009 11:44:44 AM Eastern Time
WEATHER: PARTLY CLOUDY 19C (65F)
TRACK: Poly TURF: Off
#3 EQUITABLE +3
#7 TIGER BUD SCRATCHED
#8 PERFECT BULLET TWO #3 SHOES
Tiger Bud being scratched doesn't change the handicap one iota. It does make the field a bit smaller, but we'll live. Ice Bear is still my chalk but watch the tote and work your handicap appropriately.
The Appleton Turk is feelin' Michael's Bad Boy. He was a ML 8-1 and I don't think it's a bad $2 win bet.
The following press release came to me from my friends at the Kentucky Bourbon Trail
For Immediate Release – July 1, 2009
