Letter: A top class horse is a safer bet

Reader Geoff Gibson believes it's better to hedge your bets with a top class race horse.

I enjoy reading Tony McCormick’s racing column in the Free Press.

As an ex-jockey and understanding race horses, I know they have minds of their own.

The big bookmakers are very rich people and make a lot of money, “punters’ money”.

The only way a punter can win money is to bet on top class horses, their form is extremely reliable.

The form of lower class horses is generally unreliable.

I write this to prevent punters losing too much money or they will end up wearing no shoes or socks.
