It’s me and the horses. We have the place to ourselves with the exception of a few men sitting outside who look like they live, breathe, and bet 24/7.
Update: I changed my mind and bet $5 on Life in Shambles. AFTER I placed the bet I heard he doesn’t do well on turf (the first race in on turf). 😁
UPDATE 2: Life in Shambles won the first race. My $5 turned in $32. Yay!
Second race has a horse named Sunrise Lover. I feel obliged to bet on her but the odds are 50-1. Maybe $2 only and another $2 on a better chance to win.
Second: Bet on Auburn Avenue and Rare Eagle in the third. Zippo.
Third: Bet on Sly Tom and Snake Oil Charlie. Tom was ahead until the last furlong then got nosed out. Again my take = zippo.
Fast forward to the Sixth: We’re leaving after this race so I bet $10 on Say Cin Cin, $5 on Linda Mimi and $2 on Deedeezee.
I lost my money in the fourth and fifth. Shoulda stopped at the first.
LINDA MIMI FOR THE WIN. $45.50 for my $5. Going home a winner.
