The Luck of Friday the 13th........

Friday the 13th really can be a lucky day. Take for example last night......we took off of work a little early and headed down to the horse track. Colonial Downs is about 45 min from where we live. We don't bet too big......can't really afford that. We'll each bet anywhere from 10 to 20 on a race. Johnny boy hit the 3rd race winning $176.....very cool considering he never, ever wins! Then I hit the 5th race for $50....yeah!!
Then the 8th race Johnny did a super trifecta.....and he did it with the easy pick...letting the machine pick the horses. Now really, that's nothing but playing the lottery! Cost him $24 and there was mostly long shots in it. So we're watching the horses run....they finish.....and the winners post. Then they start posting the money and Johnny boy says.......Hey look, I won $143. So we're thinking that's cool.......but then, he's like wait a minute...I didn't win that. Then the winnings keep coming up and very casual like, Johnny's says....look, I won $1,431.00!! haha......we were all laughing but then, he really wasn't sure so we went up to the window and yep.....that's what he won! He couldn't collect his money because you have to also show your social security card and he didn't have his on him. Winning over $600, the government gets to take their piece of the action. But that's ok.......still walked out with much more than we went in with. Subtracing what we spent gambling, food and beer, we walked out with $1400.00. Not bad for a lucky Friday the 13th...........
later.....

Wow, now that is a lucky 13th. He will have to share his secrets....That sounds like such fun to see the races. I have never been. Might have to check that out sometime---I could always use a little cash.
