never wear anything green when going to the races, especially when you have a runner
I was told that when I had my 1st runners ever, and I had on a green suit

I have a buddy who will never back a grey if there are other grey’s in the race. Why? Because the one grey would spook the other, I kid you not.

If a horse has to be put down due to an incident on the field
I would leave and won't have another bet
