Speaking of Northville, Chicago, and ten-cent supers, look at Wanda's High Gypsy
(a Chicago transplant?) taking down a Northville superfecta pool for a dime.
The ten-cent superfecta payoff was $3,844.07, undoubtedly the whole pool.
By the way, I believe the favorite was second.

First up, please understand Northville is not one of my favorite places to race and wager.....that being said, Northville Downs can be a tough place to handicap the races but with some attention to trends you might come out okay.    For example, take a close look at how many outside horses (6,7, and yes even the #8) hit the board or win.   Next, monitor the pools.   Some very strange payoffs there.   I too  have seen some 'monster' payoffs for a dime, some large payoffs that you'd think would be small and some small payoffs that would likely be large most anywhere else.   This happens all the time.   Pay lots of attention to who is driving at Northville.   Very important factor.   Kramer, Goodell, Webster and particularly from the outside Currier, Jr.   The first two are virtually always out and going from the get-go regardless of odds or horse.   Tyler Buter is a young man to watch, Billy Dobson the Michigan 'rising star' is rough around the edges and somewhat of a wild-card in my opinion.   The upside of Northville is purses continue to rise and rival Chicago a great deal.  Being in Michigan, as expected, lots of opportunities for trotters and they run for some decent $$.   The downside is the track is generally very hard and can take its toll.   Camera angles on the TV could be improved also.   But hey - at least they've got hot water for the hosing down of the horses.   Sports Creek often uses it up by the third race.  Over at Windsor, the geniuses no longer have a washing stall or a place to hook up a hose.   Where you used to be able to wash your horse in an aisle using the crossties, you now have to fill a bucket and do it with a sponge.   Great thinking (?>!) on somebody's part...ggggrrrrrrrr.....but what the heck, they feature both hot and cold running water.

Agreed.  I have a winning photo on the wall of a trot from 1990.  Purse was $8,400.

If memory serves me right he was about a 17.5K claimer.
