    interpretation

    Hello, teachers.
    I have a question about the next dialog.

    "I was lucky enough to pick up a small share in Jere Moore's racing stable at Newmarket, the other day. I fancy I know a little more about gee-gees than I do about the inside of motors, what?"
    "I should think very possibly that you are right," Dominey assented, as the young man passed on with a farewell salute.

    I don't understand what the second person says. Is Dominey saying "I think you did the right thing in picking up a share in the racing stable"? Or is he saying "I think you know more about horses"? I appreciate your help very much.

    "I should think very possibly that you are right,"

    D. agrees that the speaker knows more about horses than cars.
