Give Me Secretariat In 1973 Derby

A long-time Berry Picker writes: "I thought you and your readers might enjoy Senate Bill 1374 currently being considered in Boise by our (!) legislature.  That bill defines and allows for "Historical Horse Racing".  What is that you ask?  It is showing and betting on a horse race that has already happened!  Allow me to repeat that, "betting on a horse race that has already happened."  I can't wait until they start allowing "Historical Baseball games" where we can bet on last year's world series.  I have absolutely no idea how "historical horse racing" actually works and don't really care all that much.   Still, it sounds pretty odd.  I wonder what those _________ (fill in the blank) in Boise will come up with next?"

Question: Would you bet on a "historical horse" race?
