Re(2): Miami 2018-19 winter

If it were a horse race I would expect there to be Win, Place, Exacta and Quinella betting in a four entry field. No Show betting as it would too easy for a minus pool to develop thus the house would have to pay out of its own pocket to meet minimum payout. Considering the size of Show pools in Jai-Alai it wouldn't be much that the house house would have to shell out. Why no Trifecta? I am not sure. Perhaps it isn't played enough (in a four entry field) to justify the hassle for the house in accepting bets, printing tickets, paying out, etc. It could be different for Jai-Alai compared to horse racing due to the fact that Jai-Alai replaces scratches with a sub whereas horse racing does not unless a field is overdrawn (too many entrants).
