So I have a Monday off and decide to play some Philly Park, it's been a disaster so far.
First race, "gate malfunction", gates open with only 8 of the 10 horses loaded, race ruled no contest
Second Race is now about 1 hour and 5 minutes late/delayed. Just cancel the darn card and refund my early double. Sheesh.
what the hades is going on here? I had made a small play on race 2 and had the winner and next thing I know there are no payouts. It is now 3 hours later and still nothing - I can't figure out why they can't pay out the pools on race 2?
btw - great to see the forum back up. I actually didn't know it was up again and was looking for somewhere to complain.
I still don't understand what on earth could be holding up the payoffs now over 5 hours later. I've watched and played thousands of races over the years and I have never seen this. As I understand it race 2 was declared official, so the only issue is the daily double payout to all in the 1st? How hard could that be to figure out?
Here's a footnote from the chart:
DUE TO PROBLEMS WITH BOTH STARTING GATES, POST TIME FOR THE SECOND RACE WAS DELAYED 85 MINUTES. THE HORSES FOR THE SECOND RACE WERE WALKED AROUND IN THE PADDOCK FOR MORE THAN 60 MINUTES. BOTH LOVER NEKIA AND KALAMAZOO WERE EXCUSED BY THE STEWARDS DURING THE DELAY. DUE TO PROBLEMS WITH THE TOTE SYSTEM, PRICES FOR THE DAILY DOUBLE AND CONSULATION DAILY DOUBLES ARE NOT AVAILABLE.
The word "consulation" is as written in the chart, BTW. It would appear the problem is how to value an ALL-scratch ticket, which there would be 2 of based on the late scratches (the #3 and #7) in the 2nd race.
No problem. Be sure to let us know how this turns out, it is definitely unusual. If I had to guess, they will refund all DD tickets as anyone who had a ticket would have held it after the first race, and with all the confusion would not likely have pitched it. And with ADW, they can make any ticket right even at a later date.
