I appreciate horse racing as a sport. Usually, first I had to race my car into the infield to get the best parking. Then wrestle a few people to get the lineup program and then run up 250 stairs (in the heat) - 9 or 10 times (for each race) to buy the tickets. Standing in line for 15 minutes to get to the ticket window, required a bit of effort. And then another long wait, to buy your ice cold beverages & juggle them down the stairs again. There was the eye strain to see the "odds board" & to figure out your budget for how much you could afford to lose. Comparing horses with the guys next to you, who always tell you about their favorite "system" to bet, & you have to write them all down. At last -- "and they're off" -- & everybody is standing up, yelling, jumping, screaming, as the horses seem to glide along the course, with their hooves hardly touching the ground.
Hint: If you understand geometry, you have one way to pick the winner. In what seems like seconds, it is all over, & they tell you which horse was first, 2nd, & 3rd. You see how much you have won (or lost) & then run up the 250 steps again, to get your winnings. And then it is time to get cold beverage refills, for all the gang, (which eats up half the profits). And you look forward to the other remaining races, to see if it is your lucky day (or not). (One guy who sat next to me, routinely won $800 at a time). He says he bet his horoscope numbers. And ME? I had a system that would let me win (every day) exactly how much I would have earned if I was working. -- It was amazing.-- (The secret? --- It was a pact I made with God).
