The mad bomber isn't backing place or show, yet. I love it when the other odds all jump to 40 or 50-1. But you'll still get $2.10 back if you bet it to show, so I wonder why anyone would bet #5 to win or place.

that horse is going to be life and death to get the lead over SCREAMED PINACH. even if he does get the lead, he is only about 2/5 to hang on and win.

"...finishing less slowly than the others..."



Best call of the year thus far Mr. Berry.

"MB" is known for his ability to cancel part of his large wager at the end of the betting and inflating the odds on his own runner.

The final pools had more on the 5 to show than win.

Do they have a $2.20 minimum pay-off in that state?

I think he cancelled all but $5, he scored out at 7 to 10.

Yes. Mtn and CT are the only 2 tracks that i know of who pay off 2.20

Oaklawn used to have 2.20 a few years ago, but When Rachel Alexandra got done with them (i believe she had an 800k place bet in one of her races, maybe the Fantasy) they changed the laws.

LOL, if you can bet 5,000 to win and cancel 4,995 with 1 millisecond to post, you're going to be getting some pretty good value on that fin.
