Its a topic for another day, but it is amazing how stores make millions every year on lost/un-used gift cards. I guess same is seen every year in paramutual wagering with uncashed tickets, especially scratches, DQ's, and uncashed vouchers.

Insane, you kidding me? That's a great buy, esp for 200 bucks! Got a link to the ebay page? Pretty sure they keep them up for awhile after the auction ends. Must see pics!! Vintage sulkies are a great thing to collect. Only now you'll need to pick up another one down the road to call it a collection.




Miss,
The last time I was at Del Insko's farm in IL. the Loft above the stalls was piled high with old sulkies.
I am sure some he used at Roosevelt Raceway.
I bet he would dam near give them away just to clean house.

Larry, I posted a while back about the fact I find vouchers all the time and return them. One thing I would question is whether its a good idea to bring it to a teller? or window?....after all what do they do with it? cash it and keep the money? I hold the ticket until the person comes back...and they ALWAYS come back...I then ask the person how much the voucher was for and if they know, I give it to them...and want nothing in return.
While I believe in Karma and will always return a voucher that is not mine, I was never as lucky as you. I do nice things and go into ice cold streaks laughing guy

I once bought a pretzel at Chester to use as a lethal weapon on my way thru the parking lot.
