dumb exotics payoff/charts question

Why do the charts show the payoffs with the dime super at the bottom?

The exacta and tri are first and second (verticals) then all the horizontals then the super (a vertical).

Any reason?

I've been guilty about feeling a moment of disappointment when I read the chart comments about a horse I had a piece of. It passes, of course.

The game turned out 100% as I expected. (I don't bet sports so no redboarding here).
