BETTING WITH BOB : MAN VS. MICROCHIP

Maybe this money isn’t so lucky after all.

Classic Overlay, who was just that at 9-1, broke slowly and never menaced while finishing fifth in the fourth race.

Patches, the 2-1 choice in the Railbird Stakes, couldn’t get by Forest Fealty in the final furlong, so there went another $60.

Trying to recoup the $80 I lost Saturday and then some, I’ll bet a $20 exacta box in the third from Tu Eres Mi Heroe to Cherokee Returns.

Fortunately for me, the computer took a byte out of its bankroll, too. It lost $80 when its choice in the ninth race, Silver Circus, finished a tarnished fifth. Its bet today is a $40 exacta, Itsallgreektome to Warcraft, and a $20 exacta, Warcraft to Itsallgreektome, in the eighth race.
