Remember that hypothetical Bucket List from a few months back? Well, when I found out San Diego county had real, live, living horse races, Del Mar made a bee line for the top of that list.
At the end of the summer, on an afternoon when my dad was visiting, we made the quick drive down the Five to the race track. I'll admit I am a horrible gambler. Really, it's like pulling teeth to get me to bet two dollars on a horse race. But with my dad's
money encouragement, I made a few small guesses as to which horse would pull through for the win.
And then I lost all six of my dollars. ...my dad's dollars.
