DJ, cue Waltzing Matilda. The Wire Players Derby Dozen Pool has reached their final opinions for 2011. I say farewell to Brian, Rob and Geno and Derek, so long to Carly, Brian and Jessica, see you soon to Tony Bada Bing, Ten Cent and Dylan and fair winds and following seas to the Falcon of horse racing, Steve.
The Turk loves the sport of horse racing and never tires from trying to spread the gospel of Ruffian, Hard Spun, Turkoman and Commentator. It's folks like these in the Derby Dozen Poll that bring passion and energy to our sport, and as long as we have that, we have hope. We also have the equine: Never asks to be a free agent, works hard, sacrifices, seeks glory for sportsmanship sake, sometimes gives the ultimate sacrifice in the name of our entertainment. Forget the idiot professional football players who can't keep their twitter accounts or thier other twitters in thier zippers and embrace the horse.
The Turk is planning on handicapping a fast main track for Saturday with soft turf for the ones on green. I like Archarcharch and Mucho Macho Man but the heavy capping begins tonight.
Have fun friends. Turk Out!
