December 8th Headlines and NFL Picks

Tiller expects to claim more in 2008. He said it has become increasingly more difficult for Canadian owners to make money and more tax break incentives are needed. You only need tax breaks if you lose money. The outrageous prices trainers at Woodbine charge are inevitably a huge factor in owners losing money. I don't get why owners would pay $75-$110 a day at Woodbine, when they can get an equally competent trainer based at Fort Erie who charges between $45-$60 a day. Fort Erie has plenty of empty stalls, and the environment there is more calming for horses. No planes every 3 minutes, and lots of grass to graze on. PS, any trainers who want me to put their rates on this blog just leave your rates in my comments section, I'm doing a post in the near future that will detail how much is costs to own a horse at Woodbine versus Fort Erie. Good free advertising.

I went 1 and 2 last week and again dipped below the 500 mark to 18-19-2 for the year.

This week I like Philly giving 3 points, Denver by 7 and San Francisco getting 8 and a half points.
