First Post: Saturday, February 22, 2014

Saturday! What, ho! No cancellations? Quick, somebody call that petition site or however those Olympic Skating Complainers are doing it to be bulliesz about a result they don’t like. Sheesh. What if those millionsz were actually horseplayers…would they storm the stewards and judges and light up the toteboard the way they thought was correct? Sign a petition and be a bullie. Get offended and hire a lawyer to secure your redress, same difference. Nowadays, it seems, you can always bullie your way to what you want. Go to a steakhouse, send your prime meats back to the kitchen because you demand to have them burned to a crisp well-done. Ugh. This. There’s better outlets for outrage. Everyone’s an expert nowadays, everyone’s opinion matters. They call up Amerika’s Idle or SuperStar Dancers and feel like they can bullie their way to a result.

Gone is the era of experts. Personal taste has now supplanted expertise. The world used to work a whole lot better as long as you could let go, trust the experts, and as long as you didn’t always feel moved to pick up the phone or sign a petition or send the food back to the kitchen just because it didn’t turn out the way you wanted.

We go with the single #6 Penwith in GP 9, the Grade II Davona Dale.

FG 10, 11 & 12 on the pay-side.

Open in FG 9, the Grade III Rachel Alexandra. The Daft Punxxx Play of the Day prefers #5 Got Lucky.

Looks too easy for #1 Managed Account in Lrl 6.

Tiptoeing around the fave in Sun 10, selecting #3 Proceed and #5 Alsono instead.

Longshot #4 Action Andy in with a shout in Tampa 8.

Another avoidance of the fave in TuP 8: #1 Lazy Daisy May and #5 Jet Set Kitten seem better than the public-choice.

The Extra for Experts comes in Fon 9 via the Bonkers Box of #2 Moonstruck Cowboy and #6 Ghost Vapors.

Yesterday’s Activity: Some good ones, too. Hope you had ’em!
