      There was a big jackpot on New Year's day. You must have seen it on TV if you are in Los Angeles. About 2 million in the Pick 6 at Santa Anita. Who could resist. and from the computer, it looked like my favorite horse was running in the fourth race. So now I get to share my bitter-sweet story. I get to the races only to find out that "BUSHWACKER" has been "scratched". Not to worry ,, with the big jackpot pick-six. So I take a sixteen dollar ticket. First horse a four-to-five favorite wins,, but then being the hunch player I am , I completely freeze up and do not play number five "Crown of Thorns" , what with Xmas just a few days ago that was a natural,, and the winner. Later ,, with losses mounting I bet the seven horse in the ninth race,, again you guessed it,, cause the trainer and I have the same first NAME. Alexandra Rose wins ,, but a t the end of a long hard day I have two tri-fecta winners and ,out of character yell how happy I am ,,, AND that's how long it lasted,,, ?Did the devil hear me? INQUIRY sign went up ,, and the two three hundred dollar winners I had ,, disappeared as fast as I got them ,,,when OF ALL THINGS the stewards moved the horse number 4 from second place to of all things FIFTH place. THE investment moral of this story is "don't count your chickens,, much like target supposedly selling its credit card division ,,, and you "Puts down your money ,,, and You Takes your CHANCES". Just now,,, which countries are not on "fire" in revolution mode? Couldn't the US build some horse tracks in Nigeria ,, Pakistan ,, Kenya ,, so the people could amuse themselves in-stead of turning to violence.
