Just when I think there isn't a new way to lose a race, I realize there is.
But, that's way it's called gambling.
I liked my selections for the greyhound races and thoroughbred races. But something always happened.
Wipe outs in the turn, poor rides, bad breaks from the box ... and the list goes on.
One thing that I always loved at the track - almost as much as winning :) - is the laughing and joking with my friends. It really makes it all worthwhile.
That's the big thing at the track - the social aspect - that I also enjoy. Gambling is a risk, but friendship is a joy.
So that's why the track is a joy for me.
