Even MoneyeBook - 2010
On the first day of Royal Ascot, the crowd rejoices in a string of winning favourites. Ned Talbot has worked all his life as a bookmaker--taking over the family business from his grandfather--so he knows not to expect any sympathy from the punters as they count their winnings, and he counts his losses. He's seen the ups and downs before--but, as the big gambling conglomerates muscle in on small concerns like his, Ned wonders if it's worth it any more.
