Calder: Something amiss with that exacta payoff

Email

What would you expect to get as a payoff if you just correctly selected an exacta with a 40-1 on top and a 32-1 chance second?  Perhaps $1,000, maybe $1,250 if you were lucky?  HOw about $275!  That was all the second race exacta paid after the two longest shots on the board, Mambo Maya and Bryce's Girl ran one-two in the bottom level conditioned claimer for fillies and mares. Hopefully somebody here will take a look at the betting patterns for the race and try to ascertain where all those winning tickets came on the 5-2 combination. The Trifecta and superfecta payoffs were not out of line, the tri paying $7,400 and the Super over $31,000.
