Well, well, well, the 2000m 2008 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington has arrived, and it’s looking like another notch on the belt for Weekend Hussler!
I mean why the hell am I even sitting here writing about the Turnbull Stakes? I don’t give a shit about the form lines. I don’t give a shit about any of the other horses (none are specifically aimed at this race). I don’t give a shit about giving reasons why others CAN win. The fact remains; I just want to watch Weekend Hussler win AGAIN. He has proven he can run 2000m, and I’ll be damned if Weekend Hussler doesn’t win the Turnbull Stakes of 2008.
