My daughter, five, went for horses she liked the names of. I had to talk her out of betting on a 50 to 1 cripple. Instead, she picked Hot Splash to show. It actually came in first.
It goes to show there are different strategies to horse race betting and there are different ways to promote and market a book. Sometimes you need to know when to switch strategies or take a risk. Of course the key lesson is that you have to be in it to win it. You can’t win if you don’t bet, if you don’t try.
