…and no paramutuels?
That’s right. The worlds richest Horse Race will be in Dubai this weekend. Something like a 6 million dollar prize. The best ponies from the USA and Europe and everywhere else have been flown into Dubai in the last week. They just finished an incredibly beautiful race track with an artificial turf track that is apparently the best surface in the world.
And you cannot place a bet. At least not here, I imagine you can in Vegas or an off-track joint in NYC, but not here.
Mary Ann and I would love to go, but the lowest entry ticket is something like US$300, so we aint going.
