One time when John Gotti Senior wanted to take back a $100 bet he had placed at Aqueduct Racetrack on a horse that didn’t run. John grabs this kid Jerry who was always hanging around the place and tells him, “Go get my hundred clams,” and gives the kid his betting ticket. The kid comes back to the club with fifty (fried) clams, thinking he did Gotti a big favor. John went crazy, but everyone in the club had a good laugh over it.
