They would have if the could
It was called 7 Races mutuals

There was a formula they used adding the  payouts of horse races and 
from that they came up with a 3 digit number. Course every once in 
awhile the bookies would get creamed if they used the number from 
Suffolk, so they would call Sam Cohen at the Herald and say run the 
number from Lincoln or New York or Frostbite Falls. In any event 
whatever number was in the Record is what the corner bookie paid off 

Growin up in that era, I can tell you WHIL AM had a lot of listeners at 
4:30 every afternoon for Babe Rubenstein's Suffolk Downs show.
