"Connors Buddy"

Betcha think I was talking about my grandson huh? Well, not "quite." We went to the horse races today. What a fun day! I was thrilled watching the jockeys and the horses interact. Didn't have much luck at first, but THEN I saw this horse named "Connors Buddy" and said "I'm betting on that one because its my grandsons name!" Of course everyone thought I was nuts, for basing my bet on that!!! Well, he started out slow, and then BAM she (female jockey) kicked it in, she laid down on him and away they went! Passed everyone, and WON by a head! It was so close and exciting!
I don't know HOW much I was screaming, people must've thought I'd bet $500.00. But, I did turn $2 into $24! Hee! Hee! Ok, it was really all about the thrill of watching him run and overtake so beautifully.

  3. You are so funny! Betting on a horse named after your grandson! But you know what? I'd do the same thing! Congrats on your win, even though it wasn't too much, but every little bit helps, right?

  4. The thrill of the WIN is more exciting than the money, isn't it. I react as do you. Chuckle!
    I'm a cheap thrill! TTFN ~ Marydon
