    Woman's 10-Cent Bet Pays $21,584 at Track

    SWARTZ CREEK, Mich. (AP) -- A woman placed a 10-cent bet at a Michigan horse track and won $21,584, a track official says. The Michigan woman, whose name was not released, made the bet Friday at Sports Creek Raceway in Swartz Creek, about 55 miles northwest of Detroit.

    She placed two 10-cent Superfecta bets on a race being simulcast from the Hollywood Park track in Inglewood, Calif. The Superfecta requires gamblers to pick the four top-finishing horses in correct order.

    "One of them won," Sports Creek general manager Chris Locking told The Detroit News.

    She returned to the track Monday to collect her winnings.

    "Pretty good return for 10 cents, isn't it?" Locking said.

    Many tracks nationwide have introduced such 10-cent wagers to lure more customers, Locking said.

    "It's been very successful," he said. "Twenty-thousand doesn't happen every day, but on a regular basis you'll see people winning $70, $200, $500 on a dime bet."

    That's amazing. Sounds like fun, but I bet the 10 cent bets are even more addictive than the big ones.

    think of betting as the admission price to the race track, that makes it seem like you have to bet. then when you win its awesome

    it's all about havin fun..

    and as internet betting is drawing people away.. they have come up with a good idea, (and now free press) to get people back to the tracks.
