Yesterday I went with Amy, Scott, Jen, and Adam to see the horses race at Arlington Park. I hadn’t been to a horse racing park for about 5 years when I went to Del Mar in California so it was cool to check it out again. Most everything was the same but at Del Mar I don’t remember betting at all and this time I placed $2 bets on several different horses in different races throughout the day.
One race I picked who I thought would win but then was tracking down an ATM and lunch so I missed placing my bet. Of course, the horse I wanted placed 2nd. Then once I said who I thought but just didn’t bet and that horse won. Finally I got a payout on the last race of the day. I placed two separate $2 bets on that race on one of the horses I picked came in first. I won $8.80.
Overall, I came out only slightly ahead, but at least I wasn’t in the hole!
