Betting Responsibly

Remember there is no rule to say you have to bet at the races, and it is completely your choice. If you do decide to place bets during the day, set a budget and stick to it. You could even try storing your budget in one pocket, and your winnings in another. Betting should be a fun part of a special day out, and if the fun stops, stop.
