The Slice

Remember horse racing in Spokane?

I do. It made for an entertaining outing with friends. I think the last time I smoked a cigar was at Playfair, back around 1988 or 1989.

It was a fun way to wager small amounts and assure companions that you had a fool-proof system.

I still remember winning $11 with a $2 bet on a horse named Spectacular Bud. (No, not "Bid." It was "Bud.") 

But I suspect that the more you knew about the lives of the animals, the less palatable the whole thing became.
