luck

sometime's ya have luck that pay's off., then there are other time's.
i were fishing in the john boat. 10hp51 Johnson motor. was drinking some, an tossed a bottle on the shore. it never landed. instead, it sat in a tree, the bottle straight up. the trunk on one side, the branch, on another. it stayed there, least 3 or so fishing seasons. [near 5 yr's], someone must have moved it. was no glass on the shore, around the tree.
a shame people cant leave well enough alone.. ah aint knocking the derby bet, i might hit again, tossing a bottle in the air, landing in a tree, standing up, staying there for many years, not so..
still like the cash deal, derby... tossing a bottle up in a tree, hoping it will catch a branch, stand up, for years, not going to happen, for the longest time. ever

belmont

Belmont; this afternoon. derby paid 11,000.oo^, Preakness 4,000^. what will the Belmont pay? hope it's a 20 horse field. i might bet a 6.oo trifecta. probably not. i aint seen the horses, yet. not been paying attention.
i didnt bet the Preakness, didn't have a feel for it. betting horses, pays off better, than the Lottery.
way to many contenders.
when ya win Lottery, you win big. an more power to you if ya win. i think it's called a sucker bet, though.
come to think of it,
i got to check my last Power Ball ticket

LedFTed $6.oo can get you this. it takes no skill. just pick a winner. {nose} actually you just pick three horses, bet a $1.oo trifecta. $6.oo dollars. no exact logic to the bet. its a spirit bet. an there ya are.

LedFTed Even on a dry track, instead of muddy. that could have been a major spill.. the horses tight bunched, around the turn. even if in the straight part of the track, it still could have been bad. i can see where it could have been 10 horses going down, plus riders,,.. i have to watch the replay one more time. 1 stride, is not enough, to correct a problem.. i know this.. i lived this.
i were riding a filly. she stumbled. i pulled back on the reins, to hold her head up, and tapped her hard with the whip, on the rear. took 4 strides to get her back up, and a bit more to get her up to speed again,.. the farm in ocala. hobeau. onion and prove out, were there. both beat Secretariat, once..

fishfiles I spent a lot of time at the Fair Grounds New Orleans , we lived 4 blocks away , my ex's uncles were trainers that traveled track to track , her brother and other uncle had race horses , that uncle had a exact copy of the fair ground track on his property in Folsom Louisiana , where all the uncle /brothers trained when in town , he died years back , I wonder who got that property as he never had any kids that I knew about , it was beautiful

LedFTed ^^^^ hope your above even on your bet's, fish.
when it come's to horses, as long as you keep picking, eventually, you'll get a winner..

or was that a nose..

the 7, nor the 20, horse is running in the preakness. maybe, if they run in the belmont, we'll see who's who..

fishfiles I have hit many jackpots at the casino on slots , the biggest one hits were $5,000 , the most I ever won in a night was $12,000 and that was without hitting a hand pay / taxable single hit , I remember that night well it was on our second Honeymoon we were at Hollywood Casino and I really think they can control them machines , cause a host walked up to us and talked with us for a while , told him it was our Honeymoon , he gave us a buffet ticket and a ticket to see Herman's Hermits concert the next day , offered us a room but we already had a room and 10 minutes later the machine went haywire for 2 hours straight , $800 , $600 , $500 , $200 over and over --- I remember another time at Boomtown they actually turned the machine off and put it out of service while I was playing it and I was mad , back when the machine dropped coins , I was filling buckets with coins and stacking them on the floor by our feet , I had 32 cups of $1 coins , they came with a cart to get them to the cashier , top and bottom full , I knew a secret , I didn't cash all the coins at the same window , I seen a guy one time cash over $10,000 of $5 coins at a window and had to file paper work on the hit , I remember how mad he was ----one Halloween night a girl friend of mine hit on a $.25 progressive slot and won a Mustang GT at the Treasure Chest Casino in Kenner , La , I stuck a $20 in that same machine 15 minutes before she started playing it , Lamourque Ford sent a limo to her condo and picked her up , she got to pick from 3 colors and went with white with a black convertible top , was fine car , she got it for nothing ( that is not true , she had to pay sales taxes , dealer prep , title and license ) and she treated it like it was free and she trashed that car , never washed or waxed it and parked it under a tree --------- was with a friend of mine , walked by the high roller area and he throw a $100 bill in a $10 progressive slot at Harrahs New Orleans , he didn't sit down and even said " this is going to be quick , if I get one good hit I am going to quit " , he was spinning two $10 2 coins at a time , he hit a double with single bars and won $400 , he says I am going to play it to even money , sun it two more times and he hits the progressive jackpot 3 Triple Diamonds and won $84,000 + some change , that was the biggest hit I was ever around when it happened , he gave me $500 and like a fool , easy come easy go it went ----guess I won't talk about the bad trips cause I would have to start a thread LOL

LedFTed i aint hit the casino, as yet. take $40.oo in. them electric slots are rigged, i think.
same as horse racing, Yuk Yuk...
anyway, when one of those electric slots starts, paying, hit it hard, till it quits, then move on..
it will be a while before it pay's off again.
darn, if they dont charge, over to indiana, $7,oo a beer or more. it's like they dont want ya, to bet.
ya might think, they would like ya to be snookered. while ya bet. i would, when i bet.
except, that one time, when i near walked into the girl's restroom, missed it by one door..
least i didnt get yelled at, before i turned around,, was 30 yrs. ago,, ..
i was in the wrong lane...

i never cashed a ticket, where, i had to worry bout tax's before.
how long is your friends ticket good? it's history for sure. i dont see it bringing, money at auction, later on, concerning the younger one's of today, who wont have any interest??
sports interest in general, is declining.

I don't know how long the ticket is good for , he said he ain't going to cash it in , it is worth more to him knowing he was there and had a winning ticket on on the horse that won by default --- he also told me he booked next year's hotel room in advance , paid $300 this year cause he waited to the last minute , says he got the same room for $75 by booking it now for next year

when I hit a jackpot at the casino , I tell them to take all the taxes out right there , Fed and State is like 38% , if not then you have to deal with it on taxes at the end of the year , guess it is the same at the track , you get a win/lost statement at the end of the year and you can get some of that tax money back
