An Australian woman who held a winning ticket from a horse race couldn’t wait to post a selfie with her winning ticket. Unfortunately, the barcode on the winning ticket was visible in the photo she posted on Facebook, and one of her “friends” swiped the numbers and cashed in to the tune of $825.
Over 60,000 people are expected at Monmouth Park this Sunday to see Triple Crown winner American Pharoah race in the Haskell Invitational. With American Pharoah becoming the first horse to win the Triple Crown in 37 years, the attention on the New Jersey horse racing event is at an all-time high.
I caught up with Victor Espinoza, the jockey for American Pharoah, on Friday afternoon.
