How Do You Like to Bet ?

The walk into the track was exciting. – A day full of promise, as you see humanity taking long strides with the confidence of a gambler. Going to the races was a day to enjoy. Your program in hand, and maybe a tip sheet bought from one of the barker’s promising the daily-double as they […]
