A few bettors who wagered on Treve to win Sunday's Arc de Triomphe ended up receiving much higher odds than what she actually paid, according to the Daily Racing Form.
The DRF cited knowledgable sources who said both TVG and Twinspires.com credited customers as if Treve went off at 14-1, although her payout was actually $8.00 as part of a three-horse entry.
Some customers had complained because the French simulcast displayed the mare's individual odds of 14-1, but that did not reflect the coupled entry's odds in the commingled pool that included U.S. bettors. The credits reportedly only affected a handful of customers. According to DRF, Xpressbet.com did not credit customers because it only displayed the true odds.
The sources said international simulcast operators were working with tote companies to prevent a situation like this from occurring in the future.
