Minus Pool


Definition: A mutuel pool caused when one horse is so heavily played that, after deducting the track take, there is not enough money left to pay the legally prescribed minimum on each winning bet. The racing association has to make up the difference so that all pay-offs are at least the minimum amount, usually $2.10 or $2.20 depending on the local rules.
