    Kolossal obviously switched Quickdraw with Sparkplug. Clever and stupid at the same time. I’m sure he made lots of money on the race, but he doesn’t think he’s going to get away with this, does he?

    In real life horse racing, happens all the time…..keep holding back a good horse until you get long odds, then let him go….he doesn’t actually have to get better.

    ….but I don’t understand……thought Angus wasn’t INTO gambling…..and Sparkplug’s movie fee was going to eliminate the need to race him

    Good morning, all!
    Now is getting interesting! Kolossal is up for a colossal troble!

    At least we know what business Angus is in.

    Angus will figure this out in a heartbeat. And when he does, Kolossal’s heartbeats will be numbered.

    I have to agree with those who feel Ghote and Sail will encounter, and be saved by, the missing former moon people…

    In all the discussion yesterday about references to the Marx Brothers and Abbott and Costello, I didn’t even mention Quick Draw McGraw:

    Now it’s clear how Angus knew Kolossal was blowing money at the track….Angus OWNS the track.

    Since he apparently runs a racetrack, Angus seems to be into gambling. He just doesn’t like his payments to be gambled away. Now that we know he runs the track, it’s no wonder he knows that Kolossal was gambling with Angus’s money.

    Kolossal told Angus that Sparkplug wouldn’t have to race, but that obviously was never Kolossal’s intention. That story is just a ruse to lead Angus away from the truth. I’m sure that Mr. Angus can’t be fooled that easily, especially not when some long-shot horse won by three lengths! That should make it to the front page of the racing papers. If you’re trying to commit fraud, you’d best not call attention to yourself like that.

    What does she mean, “We can’t keep up with the payouts”? Surely the track runs a parimutuel system, doesn’t it? I can’t imagine that any track would be using fixed odds. Under the parimutuel system, total payouts are never as high as the total bets. The actual odds are calculated once all bets are in. The strip yesterday showed an odds board outside the betting windows, but that has to be updated as the betting progresses.

    JonahHex, you posted almost the same thing I did while I was writing mine. I didn’t see that till after I posted.

    (Typo: In the first panel, I think “unnecessary” needs one more “n”)
