In 1990, nearly a quarter of a billion dollars was bet at Pimlico Race Course.
What happens to all this money?
Of the $234,071,757 wagered, about 80 percent, or $187,532,497, was returned to the fans who made winning bets.
That left $46.5 million that was split nearly 50-50 between the track and the horsemen.
Of that $46.5 million, about half, or $23.9 million, went into purses -- the prize money that goes to the winning horses.
