Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

Martin is dead right horse racing is a sport its not all about betting I can watch a full meeting and not have a bet I have often gone to a meeting where my horse is running and had a few quid on him because I know he has a very good chance of winning I havew watched him run and never had a bet york is one of favourite meetings my good lady seems to be extremely lucky there picking 2 x 66-1 winners at york which in racing is actually an achievement in itself to find a 66-1 winner on a race card .

It's a sport. LOL. It's not a very fair sport is it? We don't make Usain Bolt cart a round a few kilos of lead because he's running too fast these days.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Or maybe you keep your money in your pocket instead of donating it to a spiv bookie and a toff with a horse.

I have just had an idea for a new sport. We are going to call it "Jockey Racing". We can use the same race tracks that are used to race horses on when the horsey folks aren't using them.

Now, these jockeys are not going to be the little skinny half starved urchins that squat like an old Catholic nun taking a dump over the back of a racehorse. These guys are going to be built like heavyweight MMA types. They will lead lives comparable to the best of racehorses, the best food, drink and medical attention available. We'll even scour the country for the prettiest, fittest fillies and they get to screw the asses of them whenever they like.

Once or twice a month we are going to take some of those guys down to the local race track and we are going to strap a larger version of one of those baby toting backpacks to their backs and we are going to put a belt around their waist with a nice big swivel on the back, two meters nice strong stainless steel chain with another big swivel at the other end.

Now we get to the interesting part. Inside the papoose, we are going to put an adult male chimpanzee. The only way the human gets the monkey off his back is by running like hell to the other end of the racetrack into a special "finishing box". Inside the finishing box there will be a nice bunch of bananas for the chimp. Oh sorry, I forgot to mention that a week before the race we stop feeding the chimpanzee.

Do you think people would bet on that? I think I might Do you think people would pay to watch that on the TV? I am sure that some would. If you timed it so that it was on the TV at half-time during football matches people would "pay to view" that rather than listen to some has-been football players waffling a lot of old drivel about the last forty-five minutes of football that they have just watched. Hell if they put it on Netflix I might even pay to watch it myself.

What's the schtick with the belt with the swivels and chain I hear you ask? Those are for the wheelbarrow tyres. Any athlete that get's too good at the "sport" gets a wheelbarrow tyre attached to the chain. Just to make things fairer on the other runners who are lacking a bit on motivation.

One winner here, BET365 CEO SALARY.

 

Bet she is laughing all the way to the bank.

 

Denise Coates CBE (born 26 September 1967) is a British billionaire businesswoman, the founder and joint chief executive of online gambling company Bet365. As of May 2018, Forbes magazine estimated her net worth at $4.6 billion.

 

 

I wonder how many marriages has broke up because of gambling addictions, I wonder how many suicides have came about due to gambling.

 

The saying " the bookie always wins " is clear to see.

Good luck to her, everybody has a right to amass fortunes, but one thing for sure, she wont be getting any of my cash. :bye1:
