Okay, so aside from getting rubbed on by some freak at OTB (don’t ask) and then having a REALLY rude lady as my cashier at OTB, I managed to get my bets placed.
Not as many as I’d like though, since they don’t do $1 bets. Razzle frazzle frickety frack. And Mary wanted to put $10 on my bets, so here’s what I ended up doing:
Mary and I share the above bets. $2 Exactas. If any of those bets wins, we split the money 50/50.
Then (again because of the really rude cashier), I did two $3 Exacta bets for myself.
If the race had 22 horses I would have bet 2-22 and 22-2, but couldn’t so I went with 12 instead. And yes, I realize that I already have a 2-12 bet with Mary. That’s what I mean – between being rubbed on by an old man (not once but three times) and then dealing with the rude cashier, I accidently placed a duplicate bet.
So I’m REALLY hoping that 2-12 comes in. And looking at the Preakness site, that means I want High Fly to Win and Afleet Alex to Place. That’s actually a pretty good bet!
