The Melbourne Cup makes Mick broke
I always do it.
I always spend too much money on the Melbourne Cup, and almost always win nothing back.
But it's the great Aussie tradition isn't it?
I don't bet on stuff during the year usually. I don't spend too much money on the pokies, so why not a flutter on the Big Race?
Anyway, here's my bets for the race so far today.
1st Trifecta: - (The one without the Diva in it)
2nd Trifecta: (The one that I hope wins, cause it'll pay good)
3rd Trifecta: (The one with the favourites in it)
I will probably do more bets and sweeps and then more bets.
I just can't help myself...
UPDATE: I did end up putting $5 on the nose on Makybe Diva, Eye Popper, Umbula and Leica Falcon. I won $22, but outlayed about $45 all up, so once again I lose.
Oh well. There's always next year....
...or today. I hear they run horses every day...
