Day at the races

Yesterday, me, John, Paul, Gary and Marie Claire went to Warwick races. I was a bit dubious to begin with as I knew nothing about horses and visualised myself losing my house and car and living in a cardboard box eating Asda own brand food for the rest of my life.

However, after a slow start and a tasty beef sandwich, everything started to fall into place. We bet on Lazzazz because we liked the name - it won, I bet on Morse because I liked the odds - it won, and finally in the sixth race, John bet on Bojangles, which won, and I bet each way on Gustavo because I liked the form and it came in second. Six races and six pints and I was £38 up. Result.

Afterwards we went to the Old Fourpenny Shop where I gloated about my winnings and we had some more beer and some pie. We finally got home at about 9.30pm and John fell asleep on the sofa while I watched Match of the Day. Turned out Manchester City had beat Crystal Palace, and I even got to bed before midnight. All in all a good day.
