|All this info on every horse for every race - but it's the |
horse's name that tells you if you're going to win!
The races are way more exciting when there's money on the line, and since I have no idea how the odds work or what my payout was going to be, and since my previous wins had paid out a couple of bucks each, I was pretty thrilled with the 30-bucks the guy at the window handed me when I turned in my ticket, which I think was about as much as I spent on betting today, so I broke even. Okay, I spent about $70 on lunch and cocktails but whatevs, that hardly counts.
