Just as she does every year, Teri Hatcher recently marked Mother’s Day at the racetrack alongside her own mom and her daughter Emerson Rose, 11. Construing their annual tradition as a lesson in mathematics for her daughter, Teri revealed during a recent appearance on Late Show with David Letterman that Emerson is already a pro. “This year she did all the winning,” Teri said. “My mom and dad spend a lot of time handicapping, and we all lost.” Emerson’s technique is fairly straightforward — she picks her horse based on its name — and on her first race of the day, she won $28.
“She starts with $100; That’s what we all play with…So I said, ‘You can quit now, and go home with $28. And she didn’t. By the end of the day she still had, like, $8. I said, ‘You spent the whole day losing $28.’”
A good time was had by all, however. “She rides horses, we have horses…I just think it’s beautiful,” Teri, 44, explains. “It’s a beautiful day. It’s kind of like the Kentucky Derby…It’s our little Los Angeles version of that.”
Emerson is Teri’s daughter with ex-husband Jon Tenney.
