Nits strike back

silly nit-picking ... the number in the "S" column isn't really Shows

Actually, it is.

For you to be correct, all the frontons would have to be wrong, then 'bet.trackinfo.com' re greyhounds, and Keeneland and Saratoga too, with their online terminology guides. and many others.

These days, W, P, S are SYNONYMOUS with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

So, in the parimutuel world, there is no getting around the fact that 'place' and 'show' have dual meanings. We distinguish between 'place' as a type of bet and 'place' as an order of finish, simply based on context.

And speaking of silly... while it is true that The top 3 teams ALL Show, when will you ever hear someone refer to the winner as having SHOWED?
