First Post: Sunday, October 30, 2016

Fantastic. How can you prevent yourself from grinning once you see The Smiling Indian, more popularly known as ‘Chief Wahoo’? The Smiling Indian is one logo/mascot that has Stood the Test of Time. As well, The Smiling Indian would have won the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election in a walk. Easy. No contest. Wahoo-Francona 2016.

Also, Jason Kipnis doing it for The Tribe. Al Rosen 1948, Jason Kipnis 2016, The Eternal Tribe. Fantastic.

Big Day for Hobbs, N.M. #10 Indian Tiva has a heartbeat in Zia 5. Likewise #9 Whitrock and #8 Hit a Lick in the sixth. Ditto #11 Fast T B and #3 Charlie’s Memo in Race 8.

Yesterday’s Activity:

Track (Win Mutuels $20+/Gettable)

Belmont (2/2) — Race 5 was contentious, but only High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads could appreciate the 83 on the LifeLiner Spread Column analysis on Pirellone, who went gate-to-wire to win by 1¼ at $54.50. In Race 7, contentious and rife with firsters, Takaful had Fair Odds of 3-1 and a connection-line/slashline readout of 17pc/22pc/41pc (!); he won by 8 at $27.60. Good work.

Calder (2/2) — Not contentious in the opener, but Dual Qualifier J C Monba (97, 96) was more than a live issue for the High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads; he went gate-to-wire to win by 1¾ at $20.60. In Race 10, the Old-School Champeens were welcomed into the fold of The Red Tour, who had Fair Odds of 6-1 in a contentious race, not to mention a just-barely-qualifying 80 on the LifeLiner Speed Column analysis; she rallied like the champion she’s on her way to becoming, winning by 3 at $20-even. Good work.

Chas. Town (0/0) — Chas. Town mayor sets prayer day to prepare for Election Day.

Delta (3/0) — Hundreds come out to clean up Lake Charles.

Finger (0/0) — 2 taken to hospital after head-on crash in Clifton Spgs.

Golden Gate (1/1) — Contentious finale, and High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads had an unbeatable 99 on the LifeLiner Speed Column analysis on Barcelo, who rallied like the champion she should have been, winning by 3¼ at $23-straight. Good work.

Hawthorne (0/0) — Host Cubs lose again to Cleveland, 7-2, drawing them to within 1 loss of extending their current World Series drought to 109 years; Dexter Fowler doubled and homered, scoring twice and driving-in 1 for Chicagoland.

Indiana (4/½) — The finale was contentious, and only Old-School Champeens could cotton to Leota Even Bid, Fair Odds of 5-1 but with no LifeLiner backing; she won by 1¾ at $37.40. Good work.

Keeneland (2/1) — Race 8 was not contentious, but High-Octane Chancers and Progressive-Minded Eggheads had Dual Qualifier Celestial Insight (99, 89) to look at; she went gate-to-wire to win by a clean neck at $29-even. Good work.

Laurel (1/½) — Race 8 was contentious and the Old-School Champeens had Grand Old Game, Fair Odds of 6-1 but with no LifeLiner backing; he won by 1¼ at $50.40. Good work.

Mountain (3/0) — BDC buys former Follansbee Steel site.

Mahoning (1/0) — See Hawthorne commentary.

Woodbine (4/½) — A contentious Race 8 was for the Old-School Champeens via Touch of Disney, Fair Odds of 3-1 but with no LifeLiner backing; he won at $25.30. Good work.
