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

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.
