So the past two years it’s been Mary and me going to OTB to place our bets – this year we had a couple extra folks, namely Sean and Heather. I’m bringin’ everybody down wit me!
Here’s what I put down:
$3 WPS on Bandini
$3 WPS on Noble Causeway
$3 Exacta: Bandini/Noble Causeway
$3 Win on Don’t Get Mad
The odds will change by tomorrow, but right now I’ll be doing well if Bandini and Noble Causeway do their thing tomorrow. Then as a wildcard bet I put the $3 on Don’t Get Mad, which is currently 30-1 and has good post placement next to Bellamy Road. What I really should have done was Show for Don’t Get Mad, but didn’t think of that til we were walking back to the office.
Mary mimicked my choices for Bandini and Noble Causeway but also put small bets on Afleet Alex and High Fly. Sean put money on Afleet Alex and Heather bet on Bandini and Afleet Alex.
In all, I bet $24, down $4 from last year, and Mary bet $39, also down from her bets last year, I believe.
