I'm not a big Pick-6 player. I'm really not a big player at all. If a big Saturday is going on, I'll spread $100 on a Pick-4 and some exactas, and enjoy the day.
But the Rainbow 6 mandatory payout is an exception so I made a ticket. $14.40. Gave me 2 in 2 races, 3 in two races, 4 in one race, and a single in the last race.
Well, at least it was the 3rd race I lost by a head and not the last race. And, that was the race I put 4 horses in too. Either way, I missed the Pick-6 by a head and I'm just real bummed. It would have probably paid out around $5,000, because my horse went off longer than the winner. For me, $5000 is a lot of money.
I tried to tell a couple of people and they didn't care. I guess I don't blame them. I'm just bummed. One more jump and my horse would have made it. Y'all probably don't care too much, but maybe you can share some of your stories and I'll feel better.
I'm going to Hot Springs for the first time this weekend, but I just don't feel like playing too much. Maybe by then I will.
