Djokovic wraps up charity event in Serbia

An emotional Novak Djokovic wrapped up the first leg of his charity tournament Sunday in Belgrade, Serbia, and his tears had nothing to do with his final standing. Djokovic’s Adria Tour, which he planned in conjunction with his charity foundation while he was in Spain amid the sport’s pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, featured a raucous weekend of tennis in his home country in front of capacity crowds. And though the world’s top-ranked player went just 2-1 in the event, the tournament’s success got the better of him late. “I am not crying because I got knocked out of the tournament, I […]

Away since his trip home from Saudi Arabia, Karl Watson, Mike Pegram, and Paul Weitman’s McKinzie returned to business June 7 and took the $200,000 Triple Bend Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita Park in a hand ride from Mike Smith. “This was a perfect out for him.

Can you really Gamble without losing Money?

As everyone knows, whenever you gamble someone has to lose. That’s just the way gambling works. Since the house always wins it’s tempting to say you should just become the house. But even if you set up an underground casino you need money to cover the variance in the games you run.
