Can't Put the Pen Down…

Predicting the Future at Turf Paradise


Is it the lucky number, the colour

of the jersey, or the odds?

Are there tenuous lineage hints? (who’s your daddy?)

Do you even know what ‘conformation’ means?

Herring gutted? Spring stepped? Sweated up?

What clairvoyant clues collude to make you choose

one over another?

Ah, but when they all come together – it’s an epiphany.

Thanks for the last race, last chance win,

Northern Poptart.
