"I hit one at Keeneland that paid $195,847." is my answer.
Although, in racing, what you hit it for versus what it's reported as is often pure folly. There wasn't $195,847 in the pool at Keeneland. But there it was, reported as such.
I don't blame Bob for his article at ABR. It takes a calculator to figure out what something really pays, versus what it's reported as. In horse racing, reporting life-changing scores that aren't really life-changing scores is something that just happens.@ABRLive @BobEhalt Superfecta $1.00 $146,964.90 WO 9/13/15 4 You must stop deceiving people.Pool was $38,797 after takeout! #integrity? #BS— Eric Poteck (@Epo13) September 15, 2015
Like most things like this in racing - will pays, probables, etc - everything should be by the book and uniform. In fact, if a casino reported a $2 million dollar slots payoff, or a lottery reported a $22 million dollar winner, when those numbers were fantasy, someone would probably fix it pretty quickly. But we just trudge on, reporting things to customers and potential customers that never happened, with impunity.
