Do you think betting $200 exactas, average say $1000 per race, range of say $400-$2000 per race, would skew the pools at an "A" track?

At a "B" track?

At a "C" track?

BTW is a good forum and I will respect your opinion (so long as ya don't be effing wid me, of course.)

What do you think?

I'll use pool size (my estimates as I am not going back to to look it up) as determining A vs. B vs. C

"A" track (SoCal, NY, Kee, CD, GP) --- definitely NOT (pools in well into six figures nearly all the time)

"B" track (IL, NoCal, Turfway, Calder, Pim except Preakness, Mth except big weekends) --- probably not (pools around the $100k mark, maybe a little less)

"C" tracks (anything else other than obvious A's and B's I've inavertantly omitted) --- probably

Yes to all 3 classes of tracks, obviously to a lesser extent on A than B than C.

Alot depends on the level of exacta you are playing - if you are looking to grind out 15 dollar exactas the effect will not be as great as if you are looking at 60 dollar exactas. There is plenty of software to analysis this live with the tote feed if you are serious about playing this way.

With a 100,000 pool, (even when figuring in your 1,000 in added bets) a 200 dollar bet on the winning 15 dollar exacta would cost you maybe .20, on a 60 dollar exacta close to 4 dollars, on a 100 exacta it would cost you about 10 bucks. With longer shots these numbers go up real quck, as well at any track with smaller pools than that 100,000 that Haw is typicaly.
