The Haiku Handicapper: Donn Handicap

Nicanor’s sideshow
Lil’ bro should hope he gets here
Let’s look at the field… 

———-

#1 – Finallymadeit
A quick turnaround
Pacesetter chokes at Gulfstream
What’s left in the tank?

#2 – Albertus Maximus
Breeders’ Cup winner
Dirt Mile wasn’t real dirt
Course, distance too much

#3 – Anak Nakal
Unfulfilled promise
Great at two, then not so much
Has a lot to prove

#4 – Bullsbay
Seems to like the dirt
Late runner should like distance
Could have some value

#5 – A.P. Arrow
Last year’s runner up
Not the same after Dubai
Time to bounce the “bounce”

#6 – On Board Again
Slow build to big reach
No big foes since long layoff
Needs race of his life

#7 – Arson Squad
Burns it up on dirt
Wins at distance, with Prado
I smell money here

#8 – Sir Whimsey
Money at Gulfstream
Hard to toss from exotics
Win looks doubtful though

#9 – Great Hunter
Still hunting for form
Another Dubai bouncer
Could use one more race

#10 – Einstein
Comes off a big win
Horse of the Year bid starts here
Long post a concern

———-

Who takes down the Donn?
Einstein makes it relative
Five, seven, watch four
