Track versus Office or Home Part 1
My first two months at the Track. What's more irritating 2000 gorgeous drunk girls or the Wife?
Probably debatable or variable this one but when you’re scared shitless of one and just irritated by the other maybe the track wins with this one.
Lambourne - Always at the track, handles the information overload perfectly and is an expert of snapping up the best odds just before the price goes off. Still gets harassed by the missus but only on the phone, so at least he can choose not to answer. Clearly the track is a positive.
Gordo - misses trained not to talk to be me between 12:00 and 5:30pm but sometimes the looks are just as irritating.
At the track chatting to people who are passionate about racing has been not only a great learning experience but also a pleasure. But Christ be prepared to be overloaded with bad luck stories. Track versus home probably even, I'm still a bit lost out there.
Now Glenn Pollett - always at the track, doesn't need to go to the gym, does about 20km at high pace running around the ring. Let’s put a FitBit on him, I think the distances and heart rate fluctuations could make an interesting PHD Study, how is he still alive?
He has a great knack of picking off the great early odds offered by the bookies on the outer.
Being a horse studier and assessor it’s imperative for him at the track.
As far as the missus is concerned she's sitting right next to him laptop open and working away. Is this a negative or positive? First thoughts seemed to tend towards the negative, worst of both worlds, but then you realise she is a great punter, form analyst and horse flesh assessor.
It seems to me the track definitely wins for Glenn
So, the score card so far is two and half to a half in favour of the track. In the next instalment - Betting Advantages and Disadvantages will be assessed
