Does anyone make a living playing the horses?

By July 24, 2003

Follow me on:

Probably not many people can manage to do that exclusively for their only source of income, but at least one man does. Art Canales is one of the rare people who makes his living exclusively by playing the horses. Based at Sunland Park in El Paso, Texas, he has never had a "real" job and still managed to make over $100,000 in all but two of the last 13 years as a horseplayer. Real all about him and how he got started in the El Paso Times.
