    Yeah, come race time, I imagine you will have quite a knot in your stomach. Don't know if I have the pills to pull a stunt like that, but good luck to you!

    JustTired free at last.......

    A few years back, I sold all of my stock and paid my house off. So far, I've saved more in interest than I ever would have made otherwise. No it has allowed me to also retire basically debt free.

    Good're probably going to look like a genius or an idiot.

    Also heard that "Harass" will not remember to "scratch Harass"!!! - old joke!!

    You need to be more aggressive for a bigger score go with casino drive or denis of cork. Besides your pension fund may be on BIG BROWN a wise man always hedges his bets they say.:wink2: good luck

    If $1000 is put on BB to win, what is the payout?
    Never bet on horses before, just a bit curious.

    After yesterday's $2.50 drop in the share price, it appears you made a good decision at the right time. Betting it on Big Brown though...

    I'm not so sure.

    local, sadly enough a $1000 bet will only net you $100 .
