Does inside information in Horse Racing Exist? If it does exist one way it could be stamped out is by limiting the size of bets that can be laid late before a scheduled race starts. Given that smart (inside) money, if it does exist, will be laid large and in the last few seconds before a race starts, why don't Governments mandate that any bet over say $1000 must be placed at least 30 seconds or a minute before scheduled start time? If inside information does exist this simple action would help to neutralise it. Any comment?

There are a hundred different ways that Inside Info exists. It's been that way for 150 years. No legislation will work.
I like the I.I. that I get.

Ah "Inside Information"

I remember back in the 1970,s my brother and I would get a phone call from GR.
Same Race but my brother got Horse 1 and I got horse 2 and I assume the rest of the mugs went down the numbers.
hehehe.

If one was to stamp out inside information - gambling on horse races would likely be stamped out. You and I would not be able to profit in a truly efficient market. There would be no value to be found.
