The Nomination Is In: The Nearctic Grade 1 at Woodbine
The Turk has had a very busy past month or so: work, school, family, everything was stacked against me handicapping the ponies, but alas I've handicapped the card at Woodbine today and later tonight I begin Breeders' Cup preparations.
I believe in balance in life. When I'm rushed in life, I shed all the things that aren't critical to me, like handicapping and blogging. If my mind isn't clear and free to focus purely on handicapping, then I just wait until it is. That's a big difference from when I was younger and I would cut corners and handicap quickly through the card so I could get some action in. I practice patience now and it works for me.
I'm going to leave my base handicap now to speak for itself. I'll be back soon to celebrate the fifth anniversary of this blog and take a look at the Breeders' Cup Classic contenders.
Have fun friends, Turk Out!
