Zenyatta wins by a neck!So thrilling.
Speaking offemale victories, Zenyatta the undefeated racehorse won her 18th race this weekend.My family and I went to see her on Saturday at the Del Mar Racetrack (yup, the track featured inthis episodeofReal Housewives of O.C.!).Zenyatta's odds were so good, I put $10 down on her to win, and I only won $1.I had to stand in line mostly to get my original $10 back.And I thought I could use the money, since I'd just lost $5 on Call Me Honcho.
Gambling is only fun when it's your money, and no one else's livelihood is at stake.Betting is best when you're in control.I once let a guy sucker me into coughing up $75 for a March Madness pool.He won my money, of course.Another guy took me on a date to Del Mar, and I lost all my money.Trifecta what…?
I can see a boyfriend or husband fast-talking his woman into betting…sure…the exacta, sure, honey…do that…I believe in you.(Psst:don't touch him or he'll risk more money, studies show.) I think, if your man is a gambler—or you are—it's best to try to understand the game, so you know what kind of chances you or your man are taking.After all, not every horse is Zenyatta.
