This is a simple concept. Take what you would normally bet on the BREEDERS’ CUP, and donate it to a charity.
Let’s face of it, most of us aren’t serious gamblers, have no idea what we are betting on and does the thrill of maybe winning the trifecta really improve the experience that much at what ever festivities you are attending today… I think not.
