Good luck to the handicappers competing in the $1.1 million National Championship today and tomorrow at Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas! Visit this DRF link to track the leaderboard. Meanwhile, fellow blogger Terry Flanagan at RedRockOrBust.com forwarded an interesting Q&A with Tom Noone, a contestant and winner of the NHC Tour in 2010.
After work, tonight I plan on posting some picks for this weekend's final "Winter of Discontent" contest at the Public Handicapper and hope to delve a bit into the second weekend card for TVG's Tampa challenge. My call yesterday on Banana Cream Pie in the 8th at Santa Anita proved a winner (paid $7.20) but I was off a spot in the DRF race of the day--my longshot Picko's Pride proved valid as the horse finished 2nd in the Oaklawn 8th to big favorite Yankee Passion.
