    Default Cannot believe this! Just had to share...

    DH had an RDO today so we stopped in at a local pub/bistro for lunch whilst out and about.Ordered our meals and I sat at our table feeding DD her lunch while hubby had a flutter on the horses. He took $10 and came back to the table after 5 minutes with a wad of tickets. He bets on the horses maybe 5 times a year, tiny amounts and we never win. Until today! He spent $2 each on 3 races, betting trifecta (you have to pick the top 3 horses- 1st, 2nd and 3rd place). Well, the first race was televised on the pub telly and I barely took any notice; but we won it! Yep, DH picked the horses that placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Pretty hard to do. But because he'd only bet $2 on the race, we won like $10. And then................... second race... another trifecta bet, another win!!! How's that?! Winning 2 trifecta's in a row! The odds of winning one is huge, but 2? Race 3 starts and... you guessed it. DH had picked, absolutely at random, the top 3 horses to win that race as well. I still can't believe it and just had to share this incredible stroke of luck! Anyone who knws anything about horse races would agree, to win 3 trifecta's back to back, with zero knowledge or experience is... amazing, I think All up we won like $60 because he didn't place huge bets, but that more than covered our lunch, with change to spare

    Yep def buy a lotto ticket... My mum's win was so awesome, she was a single mum with 3 young daughters and it meant she could pay off her car and have a bit of savings so it was definitely deserved and appreciated

    That's unbelievable! They say that things come in threes. Next time I bet on the Melbourne Cup, I will be consulting your DH. Yay for a well deserved RDO and free lunch.
