aka the only sporting event I bet money on.

I don't know anything about horse racing, but I read some of the newspapers and looked at their colours - I simply can't choose unless I can be drawn to the jersey pattern. I picked two horses I liked, one with quite a good chance and one that's was more of an outsider. I was more strongly drawn to the first one I picked, because as soon as I saw the pattern I was like "That's my horse."

But then the second one kinda attracted me too, and after I'd put money on each of them I started to think a lot more of the second one. I kinda wanted to snuggle it. I felt all fond. I still liked the look of the first, but the second was the one I kept looking for when they were walking around the paddock. 

The first horse I'd picked, straight off, was 10. Ballabriggs; the second one I was drawn to was 7. Dooney's Gate.

Ballabriggs won.

Yayness!! Woohoo! Very happy, very excited, slightly proud, ever so slightly richer. Very smiley :D :D :D This is the second time I've picked a winner. Ohh yeah. I rock. You can't touch this ~! Good horsie. #winning

And then I heard. My other horse, who had fallen quite early. Dooney's Gate. Had died.

I don't know anything about this horse. I hadn't heard of it before today. If it wasn't wearing its number or had the jockey with the distinctive colours I couldn't pick it out of a line up. Without looking it up again I can't remember any of its statistics or anything. But in my purse I have a slip of paper with it's name on it. For whatever reason, I picked it. And I'd wanted to snuggle it. And now it's dead.

I'm a bit upset.

I WON!!!


I backed 33. Comply Or Die, and he came first and I won!!!!! 

Its the first time I've bet my own money, and ok, it wasn't exactly a large bet, but I won and I'm very very happy!

 

 

 

ps. Less than an hour until Doctor Who! This day is great!

My family are betting on 
6. Madison de Berlais
22. D'Argent
33. Comply or Die

I dont actually know what the odds my brother will be able to get are, and I dont really understand bet that are different than to win. But y'know, it would be fun if we got a little something.
