>>171965596>Doesn't everyone know by now horse races are rigged?
Actually there is no need to rig horse racing. The whole point is that no matter who wins, the bookie still come out on top. That is why fast horses end up carrying extra weight handicaps; it is beneficial to the bookie that every horse has near as possible equal odds of winning.
Maybe that's why Derby betting is popular, because the three year olds are not proven and thus have hidden potential that isn't really taken into account by the bookies. So it is more of a gamble than races with older horses.
