Lone Star Park

We spent the day yesterday out at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie. I hit the superfecta, picking the first 4 horses in race 10. A one dollar bet paid $287.00, I wish I had made the bet for a dollar. My bet was for ten cents, I won $28.70. I am not complaining, for ten cents, that's not a bad return.

Congrats. If you save your winnings maybe you will win big next time you make a bet here!

Hahaha at least you win something. Can you bet for 10 cents? Lovely photo of the racecourse.

Man, I like this photo, Jim! And Mama and I are glad you won your bet.

Did you watch Talladega? It was nerve-wracking to me. Just like the Blazers and Rockets right now.

a very good return! we went to the races a few years ago and my husband ran in to place a bet and read the ----whatever you read---wrong and placed a large bet on what he thought was a good bet..(it was really the loser) but he won a bunch of money from a stupid mistake....we don't bet much anymore!
