...has SO much of the show pool (96%+) that if he runs out, the show prices will be anywhere from the $60 range, all the way to over $200+, depending on the mix of who hits the board.

Loading the gate...you know what I did!

He closed with 89% of the show, so the show payoffs would have been nice if Sportswriter spit it...but he won for fun.

Put in $12, got back $10.10; I've done worse.  dunno

This may have been one of those very rare bridge jumper situations where because they actually have to pay off more than is wagered that you can bet the whole field, and assuming you don't mispunch, guarantee a return of at least roughly 2.3%. People may laugh, but it's not so bad if you bet $100K. I remember it happening when Rags to Riches returned to lose the Gazelle in her only post-Belmont Stakes race. It sounds like it might have been the case here, though the overall pool size may not have been big enough.

Interesting nonetheless.
