The Raceway at the Western Fair District has issued a statement regarding an exactor payout from the Wednesday (January 16) program that was lower than the win payout on the first-place horse.

Thursday's statement appears below.

An unusually low exactor payout in Wednesday’s (January 16) seventh race prompted us to contact Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) officials along with our Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA) rep in order to investigate the wagering patterns for that race and the origin of the winning tickets.

Our tote provider provided us the pertinent wagering information which showed that the bulk of the winning tickets were sold at a tote hub in Kentucky.

This type of wagering anomaly has occurred before during the past couple of seasons and in each of those instances the bulk of the winning tickets have been traced back to the same Kentucky Hub. A prior investigation included officials from that location and found no evidence of collusion or anyone driving in a questionable manner in that race.

We are continuing to look into this instance and we support the regulators in investigating this situation to the fullest extent required.

Why post anything when you haven't actually done the investigation? It looks like a past posting issue to me (somebody betting after race was started).

TEAM BLANCHARD should be congratulated for contacting AGCO/CPMA to investigate and provide a quick answer to the low payout. The pool was only $4,000 and a large exactor ticket would have created this result. Confidence to the betting public should be the utmost in these periodic cases.

Thought at first maybe someone just played the wrong track, but it's happened at this location before. As my friend Sherlock would say "Very interesting my dear Watson."

I am very impressed that Western Fair triggered an investigation.
