Beginner’s Luck

Posted on May 21, 2008 @ 12:11 pm

I have a really funny story to tell. It is all about how I became known as the best horse racing tipster amongst all of my college friends. It was a long time ago, but we all still get such a laugh when we get together for beers and the subject comes up.

One night, when we were all bored, we decided to head down to the tracks, just for something to do. None of us had ever bet on a race before and we decided that we would all place a bet. I started spouting off racing tips, just to be funny, as I really knew nothing about it. I decided to place my bets on the jokes I was making, even though the odds were greatly stacked against me winning a single race.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, I won every single race I bet on. I made a lot of money that night and the next time we went all of my friends wanted me to share my best horse racing tips with them. We never won anything that night and we all had a good laugh that I had just had beginners luck that first time. It is still pretty funny to talk about.
