Why are horse players a different breed of people?

Literally what the agent told me over the phone at NYRA

Only in the sense that the same can be said for poker players, golfers, coders, lawyers, doctors, nurses, and quilters.

They (we) all have a Brand that comes with a lifestyle.

Maybe NYRA agents have their own brand. LOL

Horseplayers are addicted to emotional and psychological masochism?

I think there are two types. The first type enjoys all kinds of gambling, poker, blackjack, craps etc. The second type, of which I am one, is strictly interested in thoroughbred racing, not the trotters or casino gambling.

with the possible exception of this website, i think there is a lot of insecurity and contrarianism in the environment. i wish i could say my life was exempt from such behavior but that would not be true.
