It's down to Saint Anthonys
'How come you're always winning money on the horses?' asked Paul.
'Well, it's all down to Saint Anthony,' said Peter McGee. 'Every morning on
my way to work I pop into church, kneel in front of Saint Anthony's statue, take
out the racing paper, and the holy man guides my hand down the list of runners.
'I'm not a Catholic,' said Paul, 'but I'd love to try it. Where is this statue?'
'Go in the front door of Sacred Heart Church and Saint Anthony is the six-foot
statue on the right.'
Next morning, into church went Paul, little knowing that overnight the six-foot
Saint Anthony had been removed for cleaning and in its place was a two-foot high
Paul edged up to the little statue and whispered, I'm a friend of Pete McGee's.
Has your old man left any tips for today?'
