    No, those are not the odds, that is the minimum payout. The track lost a lot of money paying out ten cents to a vast majority of all bettors.
    A little late to the party . . . the minimum payout would be 2.10, or five cents on the dollar, so in this case there wasn't a minus pool. Sham attracted enough support from his breeding to "fully fund" the parimutels.
    An interesting side note in that race is that Secretariat actually payed more to place (2.40) than to win (2.20). Happens sometimes, in this case likely driven by the number of win tickets purchased as souvenirs and by speculators looking to sell in the aftermath.

      I hope she is back to top form because her running is beautiful to watch.
      Aye, I'm always dubious when I hear wild predictions and such like from athlete and coach, but to be fair to Bennema, he's been quite candid in the past: he's said a couple of times that it was unlikely she would ever get back into her 2015 form, but possible she could get back to her 2016 form; In 2019 he was very open about his plan to get her back to her 2017/22.0- 22.1 form that year - to be able to build on for sub 22 in 2020 - but acknowledged it would be difficult. So, fingers crossed he isn't just giving her false hope. We'll see. Her 10.19 4x1 leg was good on a very, very cold evening, but of course relay splits need to be read with caution.

      For me, after what has happed regarding her injuries, and the talent we have at the top, I would do what another poster suggested on another thread: get her to focus on the 200, 4x1 and 4x4, and totally scrap the 100m. It is extremely doubtful she will medal in that event and it would take probably more than one woman to eff up in order for her to medal. Over 100m at present Richardson, SAFP, Thompson, DAS & Ta Lou are all above her, that's without other possible US & JAM threats. In the 200m though, SMU & DAS are the stand-outs, then after that it's much closer. Anyway, let's hope she has some of that relaxation and latter-race surge back, as that is what she will need.

        I have always been a 'pessimistic' coach, lowballing their chances and results.
        But sometimes, when an athlete loses confidence, I tell them how great they are going to do, and because they so want to please me (not necessarily me, personally, but The Coach) that they make that extra adjustment in training and competing, and it becomes a case of expectation fulfillment.
        No athlete is immune from a coach's psychological warfare tactics!!

                            By far the best outdoor jump this early in May. She's seems as close as a lock as you'll get for Tokyo gold right now.
