Or it could be that the horse just didn't feel like it that day.  I know all those high falutin trainers and owners don't want to hear such things, but horses have moods just like people do.  I can go out one weekend and barely have to touch my horses sides with my heels and he picks up a nice trot.  Go out the following weekend and couldn't buy a trot with lottery winnings.  You can train an animal to do what you want, but they are not always going to do it.

Won 50 once in the Ohio one. Our pool in the Mega has won a few bucks, just enough to roll back in. It consists of a little over 70 people at 2 bucks a-piece. They only play when the jackpot gets up there some..........Buck 8) ::)

The Lottery was suposed to divert some of the funds collected to the public school systems in Texas, I don't think that much of it has ever reached the schools.

they are trying to get a lottery on the ballot here in Nov.  all the surronding states have one so the state thinks they are losing all that money to them and they want their share.

If ya get a state lottery, find yer convenience stores that ain’t gonna play.

Maddenin’ when ya wanna get in ‘n out quick for some ice cold beer, even willin’ ta pay more for it ‘n ya get stuck behind some fool ponderin’ which scratch off ta buy ‘n droolin’ on the counter. Or the office runner, who is otherwise normal, makin’ the office pool bets then standin’ in the way while he/she cross checks the tickets for accuracy.

I’ve put my intended purchases on the counter ‘n walked out more’n once. Go outtah my way to avoid places that participate.

Used to be they had ‘em in ABC stores. No more. 

 Edit ta ask:

Tex, do they have table games in the Injun casinos or is it all slots? Been to Dover. Theirs are all slots ‘n computer stuff.
