Happy Valley Horse Racing

Day or night no longer mattered to me by this point. When I woke up at 6pm from one of my phases, I found out we were going to bet on some horses at Causeway Bay. Dinner and a few hours later, we arrived at the Happy Valley Racing course. Entrance fee was only $10, and food inside is relatively normal. It seems like the only way they make money is from people losing their life savings, (four large ATM machines guarded the gates) not tourism.

Nima, Michael, and I quickly separated from the group because we wanted to go up to the top of the stadium for a better view. Betting on horses seems to be easier than betting at a Casino. Track records of the horses, jockey, and horse-jockey combo clearly printed on the information sheets, along with a bunch of other statistics and data about the horses. Putting the minds of two engineers and a mathematics major, we managed to actually predict and bet on the first place horse on one of the rounds.

Oh yeah, adding the word “million” when you talk about how much you’ve bet and won is totally satisfying.
