Breeders' Cup Turf Logic

Valerie, the famed writer of Foolish Pleasure applauded my successful selection of Dangerous Midge in the Breeders' Cup Turf but asked,
How the hell did you correctly pick Dangerous Midge?!?!?


Well, Valerie, I will gladly share with you my reasoning behind my selection of Dangerous Midge:

I remember Donativum winning the 2008 Juvenile Turf ...


And I remember Wilko winning the 2004 Juvenile ...

You realize that a beer bottle picked only 1 less winner than you (4-3) ?

Take a closer look, my anonymous friend ... I had 5 winners and the Magic Beer Bottle only enjoyed 2 (Dubai Majesty and Goldikova). And in all fairness, Goldikova was a "gimme".

You are right, heads up, but Dubai Majesty was a nice pick :)

Silly me :-) I went for the wrong Frankie horse, Theyskens' Theory in the Juvenile Fillies :-(

To be fair Dangerous Midge was a grand selection. I had read somewhere that his trainer Brian Meehan had a 33% strike rate at the Breeders' Cup - not sure if this is true but either way, well done! Grand National 2011
