57-year-old Jesus Leonardo has long hair, a beard, and spends at least ten hours a day loitering in a midtown OTB. At first glance, he may look like all the other gambling deadbeats crumpling losing tickets in their yellowing fingers, but during the past decade Leonardo has netted nearly half a million dollars’ worth of winning tickets—without placing a single bet. In a must-read front page article in today's Times, Leonardo reveals everything about his work as a "stooper," collecting discarded tickets and running them through a ticket scanner "in a never-ending search for someone else’s lost treasure." "He’s a legend," says one OTB habituate. “Everyone knows that this is his turf, that all the tickets thrown out belong to him, period." That's right,nobody fucks with the Jesus.
