It never fails.  A girl gets a good little blog going, picking her horses with a moderate success, nothing serious, but she’s having fun.  Then along comes a guy who thinks he knows everything, and challenges her to a handicapping Battle Royale.

I’ve joined up with Glen Vargas over at The Borderland Totalisator for a six week contest to test our prowess at picking ponies.  We’ll take turns each week choosing 6 stakes races to analyze, and then we’ll post our picks up on our blogs.  There’s a point scale and bonuses for Exes & Tris, and at the end of the 6 weeks there may be a Lucky 7 tiebreaker challenge.  The prize will be an awesome trophy & BRAGGING RIGHTS!!!

This weekend is my choice of races, and what a lineup: The Whitney, Go For Wand and Jim Dandy at Saratoga, The Bing Crosby & San CLemente at Del Mar and some Canadian action, the Seagram CUp, at Woodbine.

I have a feeling I’m going to pummel Glen like my Tigers pummeled UTEP (and MSU and Texas and UCLA…) 

Nothing like some friendly trash talk before the big dance.  You  can just call me Candice Dutrow 😉

  1. “…like my Tigers pummeled UTEP.”

    I just want to clarify that I claim no sense of allegiance to the University of Texas at El Paso.

    Also, your Dutrow-style trash talking sounds reminiscent of that batshit insane challenge he issued to camp Curlin.

  2. Oh, Thanks! Really amazing. keep working!
