nice article turk....i forget the thread, but we talked about this at one point and i touched on a few things the article speaks about.

couple of interesting points.....

<<It is commonly estimated that for every dollar invested in the thoroughbred racehorses, 50 cents is paid back -- just about the same rate of return as a state lottery.>>

<<Accordingly, there is only one legitimate reason for buying a racehorse. "You've got to go into it for the fun,">>

<<Buying a racehorse is about as sound an investment as buying a stack of lottery tickets.>>
