Ok how many are betting on the horse called Simon tommorow?

As soon as I saw the horses name, knew that was the one for me!

Reading up on him, sounds like he won't stay the distance.
His own says Simon is small. Hope he can see over the fences then. :lol:

I'll probably back Kelami.

Anyway I doubt it but I'd be interested to know if Simon the horse wins, would love to see Simon himself complete the grand national

I bet and won once, can't remember the name the horse though, but I wasn't old enough to bet, my great uncle bought these two lucky dip bets at a garage and I got to choose one and I won.

Don't really see the point in horse racing it just aids those who are addicted to gambling to gamble.

Enjoy the sun I'm going to.

Kerri, did you take it at the odd when you put the bet on?

I'm off to the bookies to NOT bet on Simon. I actually wanna win some money. :lol:

take it at the odd?? (I'm thick.. :) )

I did it each way, hopefully will win something, the odds aren't bad, but it says the horse is best on soft ground.. It hasn't rained in days! But normaly finishes within top 4.. Grand national, top 4 is win each way I thought, so fingers crossed!

Taking the odds means you'll get paid out at the odds it was when you put the bet on, i.e you put the bet on at 100/1 taking the odds, if the price goes down (eg 25/1) or up you (150/1) will still be paid at 100/1.

I doubt he can see over the fences Kerri, even his owner said he was small. I think he'll be pulled up or fall.

I took the odds, one of mine is 80/1. :lol:

hehe but my horse has better odds than 80/1 hehe :) It may be small, but it might have super springy legs, and the ability to fly *rolls eyes* I know, my horse is probably a three legged donkey.. which then wouldn't make it a horse.. I'm gonna shut up now!

my odds were 16/1.. before it fell over.. but it was doing well, within the top 5 spots for a big part of the race.. fell on the 27th fence, unlucky.. did your horse win?
