NO, it went in running, I know because  I placed a winning bet during the race.
Then betfair  seemed to re-open it  for many minutes.
I thought it was because Inquiry, obviously not.
The BOTS kept trading with each other BUT
I am livid because they have voided  my in running bet  although  it was placed  while horses at 2 furlong marker.
You are correct this US racing is becoming a joke,   a big joke.
I  am more angry than when I lose a bunch  due to poor picks or whatever.
Tread very carefully

12.00 CT just suspended, will have to wait for a long time to get paid out on it as they sort out the mess

Have been talking to them on facebook ( seems to be the only contact, these days). Well The race ( 23.00 Penn) has been settled and my IN- RUNNING bet voided this is the last message I sent them.

OK they haven't  paid me on that, I am pretty disgusted,,  really not happy.  It has been a nice few years But this stinks.. risking money on a horse while it is running, and then not getting paid.  There is a word for that they use in the courts I believe.  Yours truly livid.

happens every night
exchange has long been a waste of time for all users
Report racingfish May 5, 2017 12:53 AM BST
yes,   even things like trying to watch  Copa Libertadores matches  then the video says  "sorry connection to this stream is unavailable"   then you  have to stick more money in Bet365 or wherever just to watch the ####match.
Shame , this was such a great idea, it really was.
But  an exchange ideally should just be an exchange, Keep simple but run it well.
Not offset liability from sportsbook to exchange market  or whatever opportunity then presents itself to a firm running the two competing ideas.
Sad as I feel,  and I never contemplated this before, but this latest fiasco has me wondering if the time has come to jump ship.
It has been fun, but the joy of being a part of this is tainted  quite badly.
real shame.

The first race at Penn did not go in running-it wasnt suspended at the off.

It was pretty obvious that the race at Penn had not been suspended and any bets afterwards would always be void but it has happened far too many times for a supposedly professional organisation.

Been betting on a Friday night at Penn for over 15 years ,never sport my entertainment or betting to be honest.
Report RothmanMike May 20, 2017 1:46 AM BST
Guess it's 'cos it always looks bright and sunny there,when it's dark and dreary over here.
Does help that the outsiders always tailed off also-as they should be. Crazy.
