Step 1: Look at entries for a big stakes race.
Step 2: Decide you have no idea who will win and start going down the list to determine who has your favorite name so you know who to root for.
Step 3: “___ will win because he/she has the coolest name!”
Step 4: PROFIT $$$
I wasn’t feeling it looking at the horses running in today’s Phoenix Stakes (III) at Keeneland. As cool as Flashpoint is, he’s terribly inconsistent and Aikenite was being fawned over too much earlier in the day by Three Chimneys Farm (which to me is as unlucky as saying Macbeth three times). I saw the name HOOFIT, loved it. Edgar Prado’s riding him, loved it. THAT IS ALL THE INFORMATION I NEED! HOOFIT WILL WIN!
And yeah, he won hahaha. Expert handicapping at its best. Look how cute he is anyway! (I think it’s pronounced Hoof It, not Hoo-fit)
