42 Days at the Races PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

42 Days at the Races free pdf Does a winning horse really stand out in the mounting yard? Will life-long punting loyalty to an equine family, a trainer, or jockey, ever be repaid? Is there any such thing as a foolproof betting system, a hot tip or a sure thing? Is punting the biggest mug's game in existence, or can you win big, even make a living from it? And could you ever find a publisher who'd let you loose with a purse of $20,000 so you could find out? Diehard punter Helen Thomas attempts to answer these questions by accepting the dream challenge of betting with someone else's money, and spending every day of the Victorian Spring Racing Carnival on the punt. That's 42 days of getting up at dawn for track work before following the turf convoy out of town for country meetings in the extraordinary lead-up to Australia's really big racing events - the Holy Grail for punters and owners alike: the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.
