We were able to attend the horse races at Hollywood Park, where they allowed bets to be placed on the Preakness and displayed the race for all to see. Being a cautious gambler, I bet on Orb, the frontrunner, to win and placed two other bets on interestingly named horses- Mylute & Itsmyluckyday to place. Meanwhile, Bill placed the safe bet on Orb and feeling inspired placed another bet on Oxbow to win and to place. That $4 bet turned into a $45 payday!
All in all, we came up on top, including our drinks for the afternoon, we finished the day up $9! It’s the small victories that make life exciting.
In case you want a recap of the Preakness, here’s a list of the winners & losers by the Bleacher Report.
