Joe Jackson reprise?
Being a Saturday night, I was surprised at the amount of "talent" on show, yet the blokes they were with not in the same league, and it reminded me of the Joe Jackson song with the line "pretty women out walking with gorillas down my street."
Anyway's - back to the sport and one thing that I do like about the dogs is that they are consistent and run their hearts out. There were 12 races on the card, I had a bet on 10 and found 3 winners. Was a bit miffed that I missed another 3 (in hindsight) obvious good chances; but overall I enjoyed the night.
The bookies (4 on the rails at the track - 3 local firms and bet365) on the face of it don't give much away with over-rounds of 125% - but I would have done better for all of my winners going to them instead of using the tote (run by Corals).
If you can get to a dog track, then do it.
