The exacta, according to the rules, is determined by the win/place finishers. Yet the exacta pays off on the win/show horse when it finishes, e.g., 1/1A/2. What the ?? Either the entrymate should be disregarded for the place payoffs, or the exacta should pay off on 1/1. It won't blow up the system to install a 1/1 key, a 2/2 key, et cetera. More betting interests.
But as it stands, the exacta can be win horse/show horse or, in the case of D. W. Lukas in the old days, win horse/way-out-of-the-money horse.
Kind of makes you wonder just who is being protected by entry rules
doesn't it? Your suggestion on removing the entry from consideration in
exotics might even go one step further and simply eliminate the coupled entry
alltogether. The problem in NY is that there would be 100 times the angry
Ralph's when they had a Henry Dominguez pulled on them.

I just have to remember the entry rules are there to protect me as a bettor.
