Here are two simple questions to ask yourself when betting on a horse:
1) Does the horse have a good/intriguing/unique/funny name?
2) Is the horse pretty?
If you have answered yes to one or both of these questions, then you have yourself a winner. Jockey? Trainer? Lasik? Blah! I’m all about aesthetics when it comes to horse racing.
We went to Del Mar on Saturday and this was my formula. May I say, it worked like a charm! We won the big bucks*. Well, enough to pay for our margaritas, anyway. And to me, there’s a successful day at the races.
* If by big bucks, you mean winning $24 on a $2 bet.
