Description SAED:SOCIAL:GAMBLING:DRUM SEPTEMBER 1952 Ð How To Bet Ð ÒThen Watch Out For The TsotsisÓ HORSE WILL CONQUERÕ punters have a good look at the horses in the paddock at Turffontein before laying their bets. You decide which horse will conquer, stake your money with the bookmakers or the Tote, and , after your fancy has won, return to receive your winnings. There are two approaches to his ever-important task of picking the winner, luck and judgement, which we will call respectively Òrolling the bonesÓ and ÒSystemsÓ.
