It was a tip from somebody I follow on Twitter. He backed the horse at 14/1. It had dipped into 12/1 when I caught it.
After placing the wager, I got on with my day.
Until a bottle of milk dropped out of the fridge onto the floor.
I had to mop it all up. Once I had finished, I checked the time - I had missed the race.
The horse won in my absence, which means I mopped up a win from Mylk while I was mopping up real milk!
