if you bet a horse and it pays $2.10 to win thats a good bet, any winning bet is a good bet.
Kid, I have not seen a winning bet of 2.10 at the major tracks, maybe harness ?
That statement is true only if it's the one and only bet you make for your entire career. Otherwise it's ridiculous.
What about the last leg of a P3, where you had an 80-1 and a 50-1 winner in the 1st two legs?
all losing bets are bad bets, all winning bets are good bets

C'mon Kermit you know that's not what we're talking about.
What if you put in an $1156 Pick 6. It hits and pays $384?
that would be a losing bet. i said all winning bets.
what i like to do is play $40.00 to win on horses that
pay $2.40 to win, i take my $8.00 profit and buy a beer
so thats 9 free beers a day, 10 free beers on saturdays
I was hoping you'd say that. Actually it's a winning bet. An $1156 Pick 6 is actually 578 $2.00 bets all put on one ticket. So you bought a winning ticket but had to buy 577 losers to get to it. So in that case winning bets are not necessarily winning bets and same for losing bets.
As for the beer. Why not just bring money to buy yourself beer? Clearly you'd be better off at the bar than the windows. However, pari-mutually speaking I'm quite sure the rest of the members would prefer you continue to play horses.
Better yet. Next time you come to HP I'll buy you all the beer you want. Within reason. Just for being a good sport
