Anyway, while you all decide on your answer, i have another backstory for you! So, all my life i've lived about 45 minutes away from a racetrack. When i was little, we used to visit often. My grandparents would go to the casino while my parents and sometimes my sisters would go to the racetrack with me. My father always had a stat sheet with all the names and information and my mother and i would go look at the horses in the little side area. My mother had always loved horses so she had a great eye for what horse would win a certain kind of race while my father based it on stats and where they were from. I however, had a different method. I picked which horse had a fun name and how they acted on the little side track before the race. I looked for horses who looked like they wanted to win without being cocky. My mother would point ones out and we would eventually agree on a horse and a place, then they would place the minimum 2 dollar bet. Occassionaly, my father would put his own bet on so we could see who was right. The answer is me. In fact one day, we were sitting outside watching the races and a man was sitting behind us. I won a few races in a row and after the 4th or 5th, he leaned over 2 my parents and asked "which horse is she betting on?" We both made a good chunk of change that day.
A few of you might remember Mine That Bird, the horse that won the Kentucky derby. However, i
