The Melbourne Cup has been run and I can confirm zero success on any of the four horses I put money on. This year we were provided access to tips from gentlemen who live and breathe horse racing and…. we will now return to our usual name, horse colour and dart solutions. While we appreciate the tips, the variables in horse racing, especially when every horse in the race is trying to win it, seem way harder than getting wealthier the old-fashioned way – saving and investing.
To those who did win, congratulations and we hope you celebrated appropriately.
Having demonstrated very little skill in gambling we have returned to something we do understand, but still can be very fickle, investment markets.
