On the surface, you have a much better chance of winning something in a race with 4-6 horses than a race with 10+ horses.
If the goal in this game were to "win something"...then we would be overjoyed with the plethora of odds-on winners that we see. But we are not...because we were originally attracted to this game by its "bet a little to win a lot" aspect. And this expectation can hardly be fulfilled by the promise offered by the 4-6 horse field.
