Lunch at Arlington Park

28 August 2008 No Comment

Yesterday, I forgot to bring my lunch to work. So instead of eating in the building’s cafeteria I decided to eat lunch at Arlington Park and watch some horse racing. As I did the last few times, I brought my laptop so I could work using Arlington Park’s wireless network.

Before the day started, the announcer mentioned there maybe some money to be won because no horse in the field had proven themselves. She was right. In the first race, I bet the two favorites in an exacta box but lost when Dr. Feelgood won and paid $19.80 on a $2 bet. In all, 6 of the 8 races’ winners paid more than $10.00 on $2 bets including a $29.80 payday when Tobin’s Royalty won race #4.
