    USA racing on Sky2

    Having resubscribed to Sky2 for the Jewels, I thought I would turn it on and have a look at the US racing this morning
    I wonder whether there are minimum size pools which make it viable for the TAB to offer betting on a meet
    R1 Hoosier Park $106.50 in the Win Pool, $48.50 in the Tri pool and a massive $7.50 in the First Four

    https://www.tab.com.au/racing/2019-0...R-PARK/HOO/H/1

    Of course we do not know what they held on the fixed betting and you would have to expect that this would be the only way to bet on a meet with such small tote pools

    The winner paid $13 tote

    In NSW it only paid $6.50

    Does anybody know how I can access NSW TAB dividends/results from Vic (always seems to redirect me)

    On Unibet it paid $135 (bad luck NSW but your $10 bet may have crashed the odds LOL)
    Unibet are good for showing all the dividends but it does not tell you the pools

    The pools improved a little (The win pool for Hoosier R4 was $323) but I am wondering about the TAB's take

    Nobody had the Exacta
    There was $16.50 in the pool
    But only $13.20 jackpotted
    That means the TAB kept $3.30 out of $16.50
    That is 20%

    No idea Kev but perhaps having something to bet on continuously is better overall than nothing to bet on for intervals. Better for us that it’s harness racing then greyhound racing. I understand we’ll have Yonkers on again soon, but they’ll need to be much better at starting on time to stay on.
