Chepstow Race Night – July 2009

We were under starter's orders by five o'clock as the mini bus got us underway from Cardiff for an entertaining evening of curry, pints and punts at Chepstow Race Course.

The evening began well with a chance for everyone to study the form and choose their runners. As the majority of the staff's knowledge of horse racing amounted to no more than having a flutter on the Grand National, it was just as well that a free bet was included within the evening's entertainment as the ability to pick a winner in the first race was about as elusive as Shergar!

After taking on some much needed amber refreshment to help cool down in the warm evening air and quench the even warmer balti, things got more serious. A sure fire winning plan was formed. This was simple but effective; the less knowledge one has about horse racing, the better chance one stands of picking the winner.

The plan was flawless. The majority of us hapless racing punters could not stop picking winners; with one or two notable exceptions who failed all night!

Landcraft backed horses romped home in all five remaining races, saving the best till last as a £1.50 bet netted a nice profit of £65.00 in the final race.

A stride by stride re-run was relived all the way home until everyone was dropped off at their door. Nobody made quite enough to give up their day job but it was a great evening and everybody was left with at least a smile on their face and a shirt still on their back.
