I can see making a small or even medium size bet, with the hope that Princess of Sylmar would finish out of the money. But making a huge bet meant they wouldn't get the usual astronomical payoffs even if PoS finished out of the money. And if POS does finish in the money, then the payoff will be puny. I think at the close of betting, the amount on Galloping Giraffe was about the same as on FiftyShadesOfHay, and FiftyShadesOfHay paid 2.60 to show.
