I have a DJML Horserace story. Many years ago a group of us were playing at 
Hollywood Park. We did that gig many times but this was my first time and my 
first time at the races. I never placed a bet before but there was a horse 
running in the 4th race called "The Vamp of Savannah" going off at 99 to 1. I 
thought that was enough of a long shot so I bet on her and she won. I was so 
excited but when I took my ticket up to collect all that money I had won the guy 
behind the counter said "This race hasn't run yet". Seems instead of asking for 
the 5th horse in the 4th race I asked for the 4th horse in the 5th race and 
that horse didn't win anything. They just wouldn't take my word for it. Lol
