Another Off The Bucket List

Posted by Tom Locke on June 6th, 2015 filed in History, Life, Sports ... All Sorts

Here I am holding a $100 winning ticket on racehorse American Pharaoh and scratching another one off my bucket list – betting on a Triple Crown Winner.

Triple Crown Winner

I have yet to have a winning ticket on all three Triple Crown races in one year but I have been close twice. One year it will happen.

The hat I am wearing in the photo is the one we created in 2010 in honour of my Dad who passed away in 2009. The lettering is “BLT” which stands for the Bert Locke Trophy – the winning prize in our family bocce tournament that is held each summer. My Dad was also one of the best handicappers in Toronto and spent many a Saturday afternoon at Woodbine Racetrack.

BTW:  If you knew my Dad you also know that he loved to eat and BLT also stands for “Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato”
