Problem is, if Wakita is Rum, he might discover who is Conan and that will be troublesome.

The "after rats in the BO" is something I also thought but Kogoro? What about him, I wonder. He really "appeared" outta nowhere but is it something to be suspicious of... Maybe they're worried that Kogoro might catch them all LOL

Well... Conan has been more careless than usual lately...
It's true that he made mistakes since the beginning but I can't help but feel like it increased (telling Rumi about the gadgets, doing that obvious deduction show in front of Wakita etc...)

Almost every Rum suspect seems to easily get a clue or two about Conan being an abnormal child and about his "sleeping Kogoro" act so I wouldn't be surprised if Rum ended up discovering his true identity regardless of what his true goals are...
Thanks for the SS Kamite! ;D

I'm more than a little skeptical that he'd call his fan base stupid.

My fanfic account:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland. His favorite saying is, "It is sometimes necessary to lie damnably in the interests of the nation."
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

Well, yes, Gin said that they need to do something about/get rid of Kogoro in File 953, so naturally he seems like a target of the BO again, like he was in the Bourbon Arc.

Couldn't agree more @KaitoRizu. I cannot tell since when, but he has been so careless that it scares me. If we look closely, there are more people approaching him (Rei, Sera, Rumi...). But maybe Gosho is doing this on purpose, I don't know.

@Serinox, funny thing is how Kogoro doesn't know a damn thing. Poor guy lmao

Spoiler:
I was just thinking that the ending of the chapter didn't reveal who Kogoro's winning ticket actually belonged to. If the chef is indeed Rum and he has been watching Kogoro for a while, that may explain why Kogoro suddenly came upon a winning ticket... Rum wanted an excuse to have an encounter (maybe with Conan as well...?) but he had been told that Kogoro only went to the sushi shop when he's made a winning. So it's possible that Rum (maybe with the help of other BO henchmen) arranged (1) to obtain the "Pirate's Spirit" ticket, and (2) the "drop" of the ticket so that Kogoro would find it with his wallet.

Or, maybe, everything is really just a coincidence and the chef is really just a red herring. :p

Spoiler:
Unlikely. Kogoro got the ticket before the game began. Unless the chef also rigged the horse race to ensure Pirate's Spirit won the race, thus enabling Kogoro to make a winning, it doesn't make sense to arrange for Kogoro to get a ticket for a horse that might not win. So I don't think your theory holds.

That makes sense. So much for my two cents then. ^_^"

Tbh If going by what you guyz say, It is possible that the ticket was all faux and was there by wakita. Since, BO is a big underworld sort of organization it is possible that they might have bought all the horses of the race and then its all possible. But maybe i am thinking way too much in that sense.

Feels too big of a thing to do just to give Kogoro a motivation to drop by the Iroha Sushi restaurant, no?

The BO is supossed to keep its existence hidden and even if they hid behind a cover (like Haibara's lab, labelled as a private pharmaceutical lab in the news explaining its "accidental" fire) I think someone would take notice.

In my opinion the whole thing with the betting ticket was a pure coincidence, there are cases like those in real life about finding people's dropped wallets and so.
