Already discussed but I'll post again.
On Whitney weekend (Friday I believe), a NYRA employee was at our tables and told us explicitly that the computer teams do not have access via a code (as I recall) to the LATE pick 5. Obviously, you can't keep anyone from putting in a play. But keeping them out of the pool for purposes of seeing all the other bets that have been made and putting in many, many bets in a single keystroke in the final seconds is what I believed is what was meant.
Mathcapper and I have discussed at length and still working our way through what we individually and collectively think. We have some similar thoughts and some different. The pools are smaller on the late pick 5 than the early p5 is another reason I believe the employee knew exactly what he was saying re: no computer teams allowed in the late p5.
Yesterday for example, early pick 5, $738k pool. Late pick 5, $618k pool.
