Wait, WHAT?  It's closing?

Oh, man...when I was a kid my mom signed me up for the Railbird Club and we used to go out to the track to watch the horses work out.  I was so horse-crazy.

She had a ridiculous method for picking horses and she quite often won:  "Oh, that horse is named 'Colusa' and that's the name of a street near us...I'm picking him!"  That, or any Laffit Pincay, Jr. ride.  I checked out the entries in your link but unfortunately I don't have Mom's gift for picking the ponies,'re on your own.

Wow.  I'm sad.  Have a great time, subby and subby's dad!

Give it to the SPCA.

Never made it there, driven by it countless times. And I am not into gambling, that much ( I count cards but rarely get the chance to do so ) .
Anyhow, 1  2 8 . Alternative is 2 3 4 . Have fun and I hope you win . 2 bucks though ? Dude, drop a jackson on what your dad wants, and buy him a beer while you are at it. Cheapskate
