Sometimes you are right, sometimes you are wrong, while sometimes only time will tell.
I often wonder what I am doing with regard to writing posts because, in truth, I would probably be a much happier person thinking about myself. I guess it is good to be generous with time, forwarding information for free and trying to be best for others.
I'm not sure if I want to see the result of this race! I have nothing to lose in the sense that Jive Lady was detailed as a potentially smart juvenile for Mark Johnston but failed to show a great deal of ability when making her debut at Hamilton.
Some people can be very critical. I don't mind saying that a lot of people lack logic, understanding or any great deal of sense. I'm not perfect but when I write about horse racing it is from an understanding of great appreciation. I don't say that trying to be a big head or anything other that detailing it as a point of reference. If I could have a degree in two-year-old horse racing it would be a Masters or PhD. I have a degree in Psychology so I do have a level for measurement.
Jive Lady didn't achieve a great deal on debut after showing good pace. This daughter of Exceed And Excel cost 82,000G at the yearling sales in the ownership of John Brown & Megan Dennis. To be fair, she isn't the most attractive of fillies, lightly built if not a touch spindly. Fillies come in all shapes and sizes. You may remember Attraction with her wonky legs, diminutive size but an engine (if a horse could have such a thing) like a Ferrari. Did she disappoint on debut? Did she need the run? Did she have a bad hair day like one of the good people who contacted me with such jovial musing?
Time will tell.
If Jive Lady loses it will be no change. She will look as poor as her debut. But if she wins I will rejoice in the fact that a few people may have to question themselves. I doubt that will happen as people are rarely logical, sensible or appreciation of anything. They are especially unreasonable when they think with their emotions. It's not a topic you hear too often beyond faith but think back to the last time you felt enraged. Was it because you got caught up in your emotions? I bet.
Makes me smile when people say should I bet with head or heart.
Quite a number of two-year-old races tomorrow. I may detail a few more thoughts if the mood takes me.
