Bee staff writers and horse players Debbie Arrington and Steve Pajak are renewing their head-to-head bankroll battle during the State Fair. Each started with a hypothetical $500 for eight racing days.
Sunday: Won $150 when Skye Memo and Ya Wanna Hug finished 1-2 in the 10th race.
Final bankroll: $568.80.
Note to Steve: Now that's what I call a walk-off homer. Forget beer; we both finished with dinner money and that's not easy at the State Fair.
Sunday: Lost $50 when Gianis finished second in the seventh race.
Final bankroll: $567.
Note to Debbie: Ouch. This loss stings. I need to watch more Final Jeopardy.
