After we have your final total, we then can divide by 200 and allow every person understand how most of their particular $500 they reunite, or roll over to 2017, etc.

I happened to be actually excited to watch Diamonds Dena run this evening the Emerald Racing Club. She was 2-1 regarding morning range and had only outdone almost all of the ponies she was dealing with Friday.
Generally there ended up being justification for optimism.
But nope. Maybe not tonight. No chance, no exactly.
Diamonds Dena broke lousy from the gate, dropped far-back, and neglected to muster a rally when jockey Erick Lopez requested the girl for run. We finished a well-beaten sixth as Ronda Rocks–whom Diamonds Dena beat July 8–held down Winninginfashion when it comes to victory.
Mind you, I don’t head losing, it's area of the online game. And I’ve been around horse racing an extended time–38 many years to-be exact–and learned long ago never to assume anything in this recreation. Thoroughbreds are animals-not machines-and obtained their particular good and the bad like humans.
