1/5 means for every $5 bet you win $1 or 20% - the exact way to say it would be you risk $5 to win $1

5/1 means for every $1 bet you win $5 or 500% - the exact way to say it would be you risk $1 to win $5

in sports betting 1/5 is expressed as -500

5/1 is expressed as +500

It's probably a lock unless something cruel happens and it'll probably be that way for some time.

Wow he ran terrible, came in 4th. There was over a million show bet on Arrogate, all poof to someone else big time. Arrogate didn't break well, a rider ahead had an equipment problem, and seemed he had to hold back, then couldn't catch the #1 horse, Accelerate. Look up, people falling.

Baffert was baffled in the post race interview. Although he was gracious, he was nervous and could hardly speak clearly, sounded a bit like Sylvester Fudd. Charlie Rose was there interviewing him for a 60 minutes story, talk about embarrassment, egg on face, nobody could imagine this.

1. Accelerate $17.60, $32.60, $22.00
4. Donworth $119.80, $67.40
5. Cat Burglar. $38.20

That's insane.

Lucky for me, this makes it almost impossible that floyd loses.

arrogate probably had a hidden, unknown injury or illness. no way baffert would run a horse that valuable unless he was in peak condition. the purse was only 300k; chump change for this horse. horses don't talk.
