Yeah, I think around 20% is pretty normal, but when tracks guaranteed a minimum payout of 2.40, a massive amount of bets on the shortest odds might make the correct parimutuel payout 2.35, (or something) but they had to pay 2.40 anyway. Even in most of those cases, the 20% would have covered more than their .05 shortfall.

I'm guessing they don't do that anymore.

I'm getting itchy myself. I'm trying to get there on Tuesday, but probably not until Wednesday.
