Not me....Tioga does not need that kind of handle..those minus pools suck for the bottom line plus the loss of breakage is a loss for the purses. Although she is one of the top fillies I have seen so far this year. I never could understand the reasoning of getting $2.10 on your money..

To the TIOGA TEAM:

I contacted LINK2BET.COM, and they told me they had TIOGA DOWNS on their betting menus all along. However, they have 3 or 4 betting platforms on that website, and TIOGA DOWNS was missing on one of them. I guess that must have been the one I was looking at recently, and thought your track was missing altogether from their site. Looks like that oversight has been corrected.

By the way, I noticed that TIOGA DOWNS has been added recently to the betting menu at HPI. At least HPI members can also use the toteboard on that site, as TIOGA DOWNS has again been missing on the BRIS SUPERTOTE the last two days. Did you forget to contact AMTOTE to correct that omission? It makes it difficult for many online bettors, who would like to use the BRIS SUPERTOTE for info in making TIOGA DOWNS bets.

I spoke to soon, in the 5th #1 Felling You had something like
$20,000 of the $21,000 that was in the place pool.
I know it will never happen but I would like to see all place and
show betting eliminated on all races and force that money into
just the win pool or exotics

My Theory

It came to me that maybe the tracks that do not desire to lower their retention rates decided to pool their slush funds and will be taking bridge jumper positions on stake races at Tioga this meet. I realize that it is far from that happening in the real world but I always play "What if" in my mind. That scenario came up. I think the fact that they have a chance of losing the wad would make it highly improbable to happen....but What If it did?

Online Toteboard

Since I've asked here several times why TIOGA DOWNS is not on the BRISNET SUPERTOTE, it appears no one has done anything about it. I don't whether its because of GOOD SOUND REASONS, or REASONS THAT SOUND GOOD. However, I found this link for an online toteboard for anyone wanting to check up on the latest on minutes to post, odds, results for TIOGA DOWNS:

Twin Spires (Brisnet's sister company) carries Tioga's signal and live video.
It's strange it's not on their SuperTote.

I use a spreadsheet program that searches for Jumpers, Harville Exacta overlays and WPS-tote board oddities and the pool averages from yesterday were:


Win.....Place......Show....Exacta....Trifecta....D oubles.......Pic3
$2760....$896....*$1299....$4873......$4775....... .$2200.......$1079

*Show pool average includes Bridge jumper(s) in Race 6 ~$9,000

I have the Tioga Unofficial Handle for Yesterday at $191,465 with these average pools.

There was a very nice "spike" in pool totals last nite at Tioga. Couple of win pools over $8,000. Exotic pools were much better later in the night. Hope this keeps up. Maybe it was the Sunday night racing. Just glad to see it.
