Hit an exacta and a tri at Woodbine years ago. The tri paid 5800 and I had it on two tickets for a dollar each. Had the exacta which paid 850 on two tickets as well. Collected 6650. Minus the 800 for the signer fee and the tip.

Back in the heyday--at Freehold--The blessed Twin Double.

When it was a little easier to "forecast" the top two finishers.

And many good horsemen who had "a good idea" how their horse(s) were feeling that day.

One year--sixty day meet--had a portion of seven twins, one of them $29k.

Since you said "largest ticket", and didn't specify racing, a few months ago I hit the "number" in NY with a $30.00 investment", which brought a $15K return. All $1.00 tickets so no tax involvement. By the way, I don't play that sucker game regularly, but when I get a "hunch, dream, or omen", I like to play for $20 to $50.. If lightning strikes...it's a nice shot. Haven't had a hunch since that day. I almost pulled a Fred Sanford, and clutched my chest when the number came across the TV screen. I really was speechless.

My largest payoff was on a $1 Super ticket at Sports Creek Raceway. It was around fifteen years ago when there were actually large pools at that track. My $1 ticket paid me $8300.00 and change. As with all my gimmick bets, I did not have much money invested in it........maybe $16.00 to $24.00 Max.

I took the pool of $16,000 on a $.10 super at Colonial Downs......It was funny because they posted the result as paying $322,000 for $2.....Iggy Puglisi kept pointing out how good this first timer looked and it was a 12 horse field.....I debated betting $100 win or wheeling the super for a dime for $99....for once I made the right choice.....The biggest score I ever made at the track was $39,500 and I didnt even bet the race

New Years's Day 2009 I hit the pick 4 at the Meadowlands for $10,500 or about $7700 after Uncle Sam took his cut.  I still remember the winner of the last leg was owned by Patrick Berry...who was driving that night, but he put Doobie up on him, and DD had his choice of 3 in the race, and chose to drive the 10 horse which looked odd to me, sure enough he won at 17-1 to complete the nice score.

$53,000 pick 6 at Gulfstream, put about $200 into it, in 2003.  Later that year, sole winner of the pick 6 at Belmont, $34,000.  Where the hell did this money go?

I remember reading about that before. I still cannot imagine those numbers. Didn't you make a huge score on the Derby one year as well?

The Big Brown derby.  Had the supefecta for a dollar paid $29,000, had the pick 4 twice, that paid a few grand each, and had the triple paid about 1800, collected $40,000 betting about $400 on an even money horse, lol

Case, when you bet the way I do, day in and day out, you need these type of scores just to survive.  I can easily lose $1,500 a night for 10 straight nights.  Saturday night I had all the pick 3s in the middle of the card a few times , and they were all like 500 and 800 and stuff like that, and I finished the night down 800.  Its a tough game.  I just consider myself a survivor.

No, I know. I've seen you in action. The thing that is remarkable is the numbers that you are able to hit. I know you send it in, but cashing for 20k in a race is completely foreign to me. And, that loser on the other site brags about his scores.
