Well, it’s been another traditional Cup Day. Traditional in the sense that I lost all the money I bet. Yesterday I put a bunch of money on five random horses, and the closest any of them came was fourth. D’oh!
But there are compensations. I only lost $10. Crown Casino boss Lloyd Williams placed $500,000 in bets, on half a dozen horses. If I read the newspaper report correctly, he lost every cent. Sometimes, there is justice in the world.
