"Riley had the whole package – intelligent, handsome, creative, loveable, and lucky. He was like a sponge wanting to learn new things, especially if it was going to be fun. Several years ago, we took Riley to his first horse race at Oaklawn Park. We gave him $20 to bet. He bet the first race and didn’t win. He asked how to read the program. I showed him how to read stats on the horses running in each race and some tips to look for. He held on to his money and did not bet until tenth race, the Arkansas Derby. He never said a word about betting. When the Derby was over, he said his horse came in 2nd and he had bet it to win, place, and show. He won over $100 on his bet. The winning horse paid less than half of what he won on the place horse. Riley was the big winner that day."
