....But What About The Jockeys?
It's something we hear so little about.
But it matters.
For all kinds of reasons, strategic and otherwise.
Take the so-called new-and-improved, leaner, meaner, nastier George Abbott for example.
Who's riding him so hard along the backstretch as he tries to charge, hard, up the inside "kitten-free" lane anyways?
Could it be this guy?
And if it is that guy, is it not interesting in the extreme that another guy who once rode trains to a $300,000 daily-double, is rumoured, perhaps, to be riding she who suffered that recent bout of 'cat scratch fever' back at the quarter-pole, Christy Clark?
Now, of course, if it turns out that the two fine fellows referred to above really are the jockeys for the two horses concerned, you may be asking yourself the following:
Why in the wide, wide world of sports (and sporting kings) would be they be going at each other, tooth-and-membership-nail, as they round the clubhouse turn and head for home, given that they have previously worked out of the same stable?
What if you were to think of it this way....
Might the braintrust/stable be running them, say, 1 and 1A?
(running the two horses I mean)
Please note....All the info for this wee bit of handicapping comes straight from the digital back issues of the racing form/backstage bible that can be found hidden beneath the saddles of every political paddock in British Columbia, Public Eye Online.
And all joking aside, why isn't anybody in the proMedia digging into who is really running (and financially backing) every single one of both major party's leadership candidates?....You think stuff like this doesn't matter?....If so, you are very, very wrong.....OK?
