A friend of mine teaches English abroad in Thailand. He says that at one of the bars he occasionally goes to, they show tape delayed horse races. There is betting and other forms of gambling at this establishment. Gambling is mostly illegal in Thailand, outside of the lottery and a few licensed horse tracks. But there is a sizable underground market.
This got me thinking, not necessarily for my friend’s benefit, but is this exploitable in any way? I mean, you don’t want to anger t wrong people in a foreign country (not sure who is behind the gambling), but is there a database of horse racing results somewhere? Would it be possible for anyone at that bar who is a regular bettor to know the results of the tape delayed races?
I would guess the races are from an obscure track, likely in a different country, but just wondering out of curiosity.
