Snail Racing

The secret side of snail racing was recently exposed on the local evening news.  A gumshoe reporter had to dig deep in order to locate the smoke-filled, back alley parlor which doubled as the illegal race venue.  Shifty patrons placed their cash bets, then kept to themselves as the races began.  From a shadowy corner the announcer declared, "Ready, steady, go!"  With a sudden lurch forward, the snails left only a faint slime trail in their wake.  Who knows, this might be your lucky day if you doubled down on red.
