My luck was absolutely dreadful.
I picked the winning trifecta at Hippodrome de Montréal in the 2nd race on Sat. which paid $1041. Problem was, I made it to the track right after the 3rd race had run (that's what I get by doing the sane thing and dropping off the bags at the hotel first). Funny thing was, I picked the first 3 races right on the nose with 2 tri's and an ex. After I arrived, I didn't cash a single ticket.
THEN, was playing the races at Hippodrome de Québec on Sun. Picked the winning superfecta in the 7th race which paid $1690. Problem with this was, I only had $8 left and cut out the super at the very last moment. Hit the tri instead which paid a lousy 120 bucks.
My vacation was great if you discount the ponies, my gambling luck was downright épouvantable (horrible). I would've had both wagers for $1, which would've meant that not only would my vacation be paid in full, but would also have some pocket money. Instead, I got crapola.
tzieley (ah phooey, had a good time anyway)
