My brave horses.

Hedge hunter...2nd place.

Clan royal...3rd place.

Joes edge...Finished.

I can understand why some folk are addicted to horse racing and gambling on the outcome,its a real emotional high,i sat in my chair shouting at my horses 'come on hedge hunter' 'giddy up there joes edge' i had a rolled up newspaper and made it into a riding crop so i can thrash my chair round the course,i have got my arms outstretched moving them backwards and forwards as though i am riding the horse.Towards the finish line,i am willing on my horses,shouting at the tv.

I did not get first place,but i am still a winner with my each way bet,my 3 horses finished the race only 9 managed this out of 40 horses,i have won money,but that is not the high,its the winning,the feeling of being a winner.

I used to love horse racing... but I don't go anymore... part of it is I live in a state that doesn't have it... but it has lost its appeal, too.

I have been to the races,only once though,i went to a place called Chelteham,to be honest it did not have any appeal to me,it was exciting to win yesterday but i will leave it at that.I think i have enough bad habits allready.

Muffin I know the feeling the thrill of a risk even a small one and coming out ahead is what life is all about. Think about it this way if we never were to risk anything there would be nothing to gain. Everyone should live life somewhat vicariously life would be to plain if you didn't.

To true Flagg,its good to take risks it makes life more interesting,even if it is just a small risk,i try and encourage people i work with to take a small risk,it will give you more confidence and self assurance.
