Well, I was convinced today in a moment of excitment to place a bet on the Melbourne Cup. I chose Pop Rock, as suggested by a colleague and a customer. I went with $10 each way, so a total bet of $20 (simply because that was how much cash I had on me). Pop Rock came second, paying $21 for the place. $1 on top, yay! I don't think I'll bother next year.

Some horse I never heard of before called Delta Blues. I like the name, though, it's very "Walking In Memphis"!

woohoo! Don't forget to quit while you are ahead. Have they ever tried Roo Racing? I suppose not because a big red could leap into the stands or over a fence...wombats are too pokey...koalas move about a foot a year...I guess thatyou are stuck with horses despite all of your exotic fauna.
We have Bison racing...yes with riders on top.

I would love to race a turtle against a tortoise... but sadly have not had the chance.

With horses, I maintain my 100% success rate - I've put money on twice, and come out on top both times!
