Take care,

The day of reckoning has arrived. Like an eclipse in time, Casino Drive is ready and set to lay his rightful claim as to being the world's undisputable King of thoroughbreds. Casino is the collective son of all the great past and present kings and queens of the purest bred equine majesty (virtually absent of inbreeding), and after a patient ascension to the throne, today, Casino will claim his crown as the reigning King of thoroughbred race horses. Masses of fans around the world will cheer their long anticipated coronation of the new King. Many more will wonder how they screwed around and missed the Prince's grand ball. All will speak of his spectacle for decades to come. One scene is certain, all the world will stand in awe today when Casino lights his royal rockets. Casino Drive is the Usain Bolt of race horses. In layman's terms, Casino has the fastest stride alive, just like Usain, and after today's Breeders' Cup Classic, there will be no more royal disputes. Prepare to pay homage to the new King, Casino Drive. Dr. SwineSmeller

8/25/08 Thoroughbreds Across America with Dr. SwineSmeller Saratoga Races 2, 3, and 7. Post 1:33 Eastern time. Race 2: Tune up the tuba, La Concerta is about to start. When the Saratoga curtain opens in today's second race, #4 La Concerta will attempt to transform her untested instrumental breeding into a Saratoga winner's circle standing ovation. La Concerta is a $110,000 Ocala Breeder's Sale purchase and a great granddaughter of top tuba Seattle Slew. Also in La Concerta's horn lineup are a 3x5 Northern Dancer, a 4x5 Secretariat, and a 4x5 Buckpasser section. Race 2 is an outdoor 5 1/2 furlong blowout maiden special weight concert for two year old fillies, all vying for the winner's share of $56,000 worth of trombones. Trumpeter S X Bridgmohan will blow hard for Saratoga symphony conductor Steve Asmussen. Oddsmakers say that there is a 6/1 chance that La Concerta will be rained out. I'll buy a ticket to La Concerta for $44 to WIN. Go Baby Go!! ************************************************************ Race 3: If sire Vindication is an indication, his two year old prodical son, Royal Vindication, may well be credited his fair due today at Saratoga. #4 Royal Vindication's sire is a Breeder's Cup Juvenile champion who only went to post four times in his short career, winning all four starts before being retired to stud. Race 3 is a maiden special weight event going 7 furlongs for a $62,000 attorney fee. Owner E Paul Robsham Stables LLC dished out a stiff $190,000 for Royal Vindication at the 2007 Keenland September Sale, and in his first and only start, Royal Vindication finished a game third in a not so trouble free New York strip trip. If jockey JJ Castellano can get 4/1 Royal Vindication spotted well early on, a positive verdict will be in clear sight when the field turns for home. I'm banking Royal Vindication gets his due when the gavel slams today at Saratoga. I'll play Royal Vindication for $44 WIN. Go Baby Go!! ********************************************************* Race 7: Overbrook Farm in Kentucky houses some of the USA's top breeding mares, and Bounissimo is a black beauty of a son of one of those mares, named Floral Beauty. Bounissimo is sired by like black beauty, Cherokee Run, who posted a record of 13-5-5 in 28 lifetime starts. At a Keenland September Sale pricetag of $270,000, unraced two year old Bounissimo surely possesses potential. But oddsmakers have #7 Bounissimo slated in early at a gaudy 15/1. This probably due in part to an unimpressive 5th place finish in his only lifetime out. Race 7 will go for a mile and a sixteenth on the Toga turf for a purse of $63,000. Second leading USA jockey Robbie Albarado gets the trip for trainer Kenneth McPeek, and given the yearling price tag, Bounissimo should be coded as one of McPeek's top two year olds in his shed. I'll play Overbrook Farm's black beauty, Bounissimo, for $44 WIN. I'll also play a $4 exacta box coupling #7 Bounissimo with the 1, 1A entry of Hype and Swinging Bernie (5/1). Go Baby Go!! ********************* Dr. SwineSmeller

8/21/08 How To Spank a Horse's Rear, with Dr. SwineSmeller Saratoga Race 1, a 2 3/8 mile hurdle event. Post 1:00 pm Eastern time. Irish bred Bee Charmer makes his second attempt to sting the competition in a jumpers event today at Saratoga. On July 31st, Bee Charmer gamely Showed at 5/2 sunrise odds. Today at Saratoga, Bee Chramer is back with another opportunity to jump his way into the winner's circle, and he is worthy of a betback while going at 4/1 on the sunrise line. Bee Charmer was sired by an Amazonian grasshopper and his momma was a kangaroo. Short and sweet...I'm getting the epinephrine pen primed, as Bee Charmer prepares to sting the field today at Saratoga with Ruby Walsh up top again! I'll play the fine Irish jumping lad, Bee Charmer, for $55 to WIN. Go Baby Go!! Dr. SwineSmeller

8/20/08 Results, How To Spank a Horse's Rear, Saratoga Race 9. Icabad Crane runs a pitiful ugly dead last against the New York Breds as Tin Cup Chalice takes the Mr. New York title. Icabad gets a an F in home schooling, and the newly crowned flunkie will wear a dunce hat and sit in the corner until he is auctioned off as a three legged cart mule. How To Spank a Horse's Rear Statistics: Todays wager: $44 bet, return $0. Total called wagers to date: $291.00 bet, return $154.00 WPS record: 8 start, 1-1-0. Mythical $2 Win on each = $16 Bet, $5.60 return. Dr. SwineSmeller _________________ A Pain in the Pork Chop... Dr. SwineSmeller

8/20/08 How to Spank a Horse's Rear with Dr. SwineSmeller Saratoga Race 9, post 5:30 Eastern time. In today's Saratoga feature, the $150,000 Albany Stakes, a lively young group of seven hot rod New York breds will grind it out for 1 1/8 miles for the claim to the title of Mr. New York. Tested Triple Crown warrior, Icabad Crane comes in as the 5/2 second choice in the sunrise odds. That's because 2/1 favorite Tin Cup Chalice comes in undefeated at 6 for 6, with a New York Derby victory at Finger Lakes included. But Finger Lakes doesn't match up to the top class competition level that Icabad challenged in this years Triple Crown series. Icabod is double Tin Cup's class, and should Icabad Crane not take the checkered flag today, it would be a proportional upset, no matter the post time odds say. The 1 1/8th mile distance could not suit Icabad Crane any better. If Icabad can take the Show spot in the 1 3/16 mile Preakness, he should dominate a group of his NY homeboys at 1 1/8th miles. R A Dominquez is up top. I'm betting Icabad Crane's alarm clock goes off early and he is wide awake today at Saratoga's Mr. New York contest. I'll play Icabad Crane for $48 to WIN. Go Baby Go!!

8/19/08 Results and Recap, How To Spank a Horse's Rear, with Dr. SwineSmeller. The Govenor of Delaware says that Gabriel Saez has been fired from his job as top torchman effective immediately. And he's looking for the idiot who hired him too. In Race 2,top torchman Saez said he misunderstood the head engineer's order when he was told to weld Cashew Cat down on the rail, so he did. When the bell rung, Saez and Cashew Cat was just stuck there, wiggling away. -$30 In Race 7, Saez did not order enough welding rods needed to put Mrsclauseain'tdone's rails back on her sleigh, as he used them all up on his top notch Cashew Cat welding job, so he used a tube of Wal-Mart glue instead. It didn't work. Mrsclausain'tdone's rails broke loose in the first turn and she skidded NASCAR style into the outside rail. -$34 In Race 8, Saez used duct tape and bailing wire to put his jaloppy's bumpers on for the demolition derby. It didn't work either. The bumbers fell off and Possetothemax got smashed. Possetothemax's says he will retire from racing in favor of an acting job on Broadway, where he will play the part of an accordion. -$30 Saez says he has been offered a job with Volkswagon as a crash test dummy. ***************************************** How to Spank a Horse's Rear, statistics: Todays wagers: $94 bet, return $0. Total wagers to date: $247.00 bet, return $154. WPS record: 7 starts, 1-1-0. Mythical $2 Win on each = $14 bet, return $5.60. Dr. SwineSmeller

8/19/08 How To Spank a Horse's Rear, with Dr. SwineSmeller Deleware Park, Races 2, 7, and 8. Post 1:12 Eastern time. The lineups at Deleware Park today resemble the aftermath of a demolition derby. Even so, a sharp angle of shiney steel can sometimes be cut from twisted scrap iron. With Deleware's top two welders out of the shop today, Gabriel Saez stands as top torchman, and I'm banking on him to make three NASCAR's out of three WRECKEDCAR's. Weld on a double play using the one hole, a double play using "top rider for top purses", and a double play of horses that have 4 words in their name all rolled into one big long name that's hard to read, and the percentages increase for a blindsided hit and run. ************************************************** ************** Race 2. When Gumpster Stables LLC paid a salvage yard price of $1350.00 for a rambling wreck named Cashew Cat, who knows what they were thinking? But, it turned out to be the investment of the century, as Cashew Cat has banked back Gumpster over 50 times their investment, winning $59,000 spark plugs, while banging out a 4-1-1 record in 13 starts. Evidently when her spark plugs are all firing, it's like she's running white lightning in her tank, but when she gets a fender caved in, her wheels simultaneously fall off. Saez is only given a 6/1 chance of welding his rusty bumpered ride back together first, but, he should be able to weld Cashew Cat to the the rail up front early. In this a two turn event, the top torchman may be all that's needed for Cashew Cat to avoid demolition. I'm banking Gumpster Stables has installed a new set of lugnuts on #1 Cashew Cat's wheels. I'll play Cashew Cat for $24 WIN. I'll also play a $3 exact box coupling #1 Cashew Cat with #3 Casey's Irish Pride (4/1). Go Baby Go!! ************************************************** **************** Race 7. Santa has brought Deleware's top torchman an early Christmas present this year. The only problem for Saez is, it ain't exactly what he wanted for Christmas. It's a brand spanking new one horse open dented up sleigh named Mrsclausain'tdone. I'm not sure of everything Mrs.Claus ain't done, but according to Santa, she's sure done a lousy job as a sleigh driver. At 5/1 odds, Saez will need to break out his best ballpeen hammer to bang all of the dents out of #1 Mrsclausain'tdone, but a look at her registration papers says Mrs.Claus has all the right tools to lend the torchman a worthy hand. I'm banking the top torchman welds #1 Mrsclausain'tdone's sleigh to the rails today. I'll play Mrsclausain'tdone for $24 WIN. I'll also play a $3 exacta box coupling #1 Mrsclausain'tdone with #8 Exchange Artist (3/1). Also, I can't resist this whim, so I'll play a $2 exacta box coupling #1 Mrscvlausain'tdone with #4 Oh What Fun (6/1). Go Baby Go!! ************************************************** **************** Race 8. Upon initial appraisal, Possetothemax looks like a junk dealer's dream car. But the owner may beg to differ. Posseetothemax gets in the demolition ring with some hard chromed bumpers who have all won more crash-ups than himself, yet # 6 Possetothemax has the most cash stashed in the trunk. Finishing 2-1-6 in 14 starts says Possetothemax sports some fairly game bumpers himself, and he is likely to give you his best high speed rammin' at 8/1 odds, especially with the top torchman Gabriel Saez at work. I'm crashing 'em up with Possetothemax for $24 to WIN. I'll also play a $3 exacta box coupling #6 Possetothemax with #1 Jet Run (4/1). Go baby Go!! Dr. SwineSmeller

8/18/08 Results and Recap, How To Spank a Horse's Rear Deleware Park Race 6. Strategy: [quote].... the need for a single affordable power play to recoup yesterdays bank and pull even with a single calculated wager, while taking a high percentage swing. Yesterday, I played a $250,000 purchase (Sensational Score) and he Placed. Today, I'll attempt to corner a winning angle with a like play. [end quote] Results: Net Present Value's caclculator is perfectly calibrated, and the $250,000 shiney hiney says "cheese" after his rocket rail trip, therefore completing the angle play and putting my bank exactly $1 on the plus side in one swing following yesterdays opening 0 for 3 miss. Net Present Value pays $5.60 to WIN. (Came close, but no cigar, to pulling a double lick as exacta play, first time starter Sandbagin' Lover, gets up to show). +$154.00 Net Present Value announced his retirement from the Sport of Kings following his mug shot in the Deleware Park winner's circle with his "Team Who?", as the horse says that he will be taking a position on Obama's cabinet as Secretary of Finance this coming November. Good luck with that fancy pants! How To Spank a Horse's Rear statistics: Todays wager: $65 bet, return $154 Total wagers to date: Bet $153.00, return $154.00 WPS record: 4 starts, 1-1-0.

8/18/08 How To spank a Horse's Rear with Dr. SwineSmeller Deleware Park Race 6, post 3:00 pm Eastern time. Today brings the need for a single affordable power play to recoup yesterdays bank and pull even with a single calculated wager, while taking a high percentage swing. Yesterday, I played a $250,000 purchase (Sensational Score) and he Placed. Today, I'll attempt to corner a winning angle with a like play. ************************************************** ************ I'm not exactly sure what pretty boy's Net Present Value is, but when the Keenland auctioneer slapped his gavel on the podium, Silly Goose Racing Stable was cutting out a $250,000 check for his shiney hiney. (Why do I feel like I'm being set up for a murphy?) I can find about five good reasons not to play Net Present Value, and that's half of the logic as to why I am playing him, as his sunrise odds will likely hold true. The 6th race is a 6 furlong sprint with a purse of $26,000 for three year olds and up. None of either Jockey C H Marquez, trainer Josepeph Orseno, or owner Silly Goose can be found amongst the top twenty for wins in their respective catagories at Deleware Park. Three year old Net Present Value has accumulated a less than impressive 2-2-4 record in 14 starts, though he has banked a smooth $77,000, and his record shows that he is indeed a game racer more often than not. Despite his mediocre toteboard record, Net Present Value gets the sunrise odds nod at 2/1, and he will bust from the one hole carrying seven pounds under top weight. Marquez has the railspot and he should easily have Net Present Value well placed out of the gate for the backstretch run. All that will be left for Marquez is to ride that rail home. A lightly packed ground saving rail trip may be just what the doctor ordered for this quarter of a million dollar pretty boy to get his turn to smile and say "cheese". Net Present Value's sire, Successful Appeal, was a champion sprinter who has sired some quick ones. I'm banking his kiddo's sprinter genes show up today at Deleware Park. I'm taking a rocket rail ride with" Team Who?" today in Deleware. I'll play Net Present Value for $55 to WIN. I'll also play a $5 exacta box coupling #1 Net Present Value with #5 Sandbagin' Lover (6/1). Go Baby Go!! Dr. SwineSmeller

8/17/08 Results and Recap, How To Spank a Horse's Rear Race 2- The Del Mar lockmaster prematurely opened the flood gates, causing Mike Smith to lose his kayak paddle. Sadly he drowned on Rebel Creek and was washed downstream all the way to the Pacific Ocean. His chewed up boots were found not far off the LA coast by a shark fisherman. Asta la vista. -$28 Race 3- The $250,000 Sensational Score PLACED, prompting trainer Mike Mitchell to call the Keenland Sale hotline and demand his owners money back on the grounds that they obviously got ripped off. -$30 Race 9- Victor Espinoza forgot to bring his dark sunglasses that he was to planning to wear so to reduce the icy glare shining off Coolerator's neck, and consequently, Espinoza drove Coolerator straight into a telephone pole. -$30 How To Spank a Horse's Rear statistics: Todays wagers: $88 bet, $0 return.
