been playing the ponies the odd time through the tv screen at the bar thingy.....now found out my local racetrack has live racing on week-ends, as well as broadcasting other races on the television.....mmmmmmmmm......the smell of the grass, the taste of the beer, the torn-up tickets wafting along the ground.....been looking at the stats from several tracks, woodbine standardbred has some good overall winnings playing the trifector....recent payouts, same day - $89/289/196/694/120/2,438/116/183/83/592....winning horses, same day - 8,4,1/839/946/816/452/952/673/374/316/376......seems to me were a feller to simply play the numbers and not pay attention to horse stats, that feller could possibly envision a good return on his bets......gonna play with this during the week, head off to the track on the week-end.....

...............:beer: .................cheap draughts at the races...

I'll be heading up to woodbine soon too :) Probably the first weekend of August.. 2nd 3rd or 4th..

Best payout I've gotten from horse races was $146 from a race in Mohawk.. 70 to 1 odds, I had bet on another horse but while reading the programme looking at the tv's and horse's and the big board and dumping rye 'n coke down my throat i simply had to go bet on the number 2 horse.. got my ticket just in time too.. Should have bet more than 2 bucks on it though :(

I sure know that feeling Snides ... been there lots of times :agree:
I'm also familiar with the "I should NOT have bet so much on that horse" feeling. :rolleyes:
Its just a good thing that there are those "OH .. #1%#@ .. I WON !!!" feelings to offset the occassional losses :D

speaking of hoofs ...

An A** Story

A preacher wanted to raise money for his church and on being
told that there was a fortune in horse racing, decided to
purchase one and enter it in the races. However at the local
auction, the going price for horses was so high that he ended up
buying a donkey instead. He figured that since he had it, he
might as well go ahead and enter it in the races. To his
surprise, the donkey came in third! The next day the local
paper carried this headline:

PREACHER'S A** SHOWS

The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it
in the race again, and this time it won. The paper read:

PREACHER'S A** OUT IN FRONT

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he
ordered the preacher not to enter the donkey in another race.
The paper headline read:

BISHOP SCRATCHES PREACHER'S A**

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the preacher to
get rid of the donkey. The preacher decided to give it to a nun
in a nearby convent. The paper headline the next day read:

NUN HAS BEST A** IN TOWN

The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to
get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.00.
Next day the headline read:

NUN SELLS A** FOR $10.00

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy
back the donkey, lead it to the plains where it could run wild
and free. Next day, the headline in the paper read:

NUN ANNOUNCES HER A** IS WILD AND FREE

The Bishop was buried the next day.

still on the hoof ... how dumb can you get?

Man is walking down country road, spots horse who says "hello!".

Man: You can talk?
Horse: I can do a lot of things! I even won the Kentucky Derby once! Why don't you buy me from this dumb farmer - - we can make a pile of cash!

Man (to farmer): I wanna buy your horse! I'll give you 500 dollars!
Farmer: Well, o.k. sonny! He's really not worth that much, but if you want him that bad . . . Say! Wait a minute! Don't tell me you believe that story of his about winning the Kentucky Derby!?!
