TORONTO, August 8, 2020 – Woodbine Racetrack’s Saturday card of Thoroughbred racing culminated with a Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout in the afternoon’s 10th race.
The Jackpot Hi-5 wager requires horseplayers to select the top five finishers in correct order. The Jackpot proviso means that the entire pool pays out only when there is a single winning ticket or when there is a mandatory payout.
The payouts for the winning combination of 3-7-12-2-10 were $68,636.20 for a $1-based wager and $13,727.24 for a 20-cent wager.
The Jackpot Hi-5 pool included a carryover of $295,470.54, which had been growing since June 21, with $896,237 in new money wagered on Saturday.
The maiden optional $40,000 claiming race featured a 12-horse field of fillies and mares competing over 5-1/2 furlongs on the Tapeta, with Marjorie’s Dream (Patrick Husbands) delivering as the 2-1 favourite. The three-year-old daughter of Old Forester broke her maiden in dominant fashion, winning her third career start by open lengths in 1:04.47 for trainer Randy Thompson, who shares ownership with John McMullan.
Trading Bay (Luis Contreras), at odds of 13-1, chased the winner home eight lengths behind with 10-1 shot Mrs. Del (Skye Chernetz) finishing third. Longshots Simple Souvenir (Isabelle Wenc), at 44-1, and La Bestia (Sahin Civaci), at 39-1, completed the top five finish order.
Live Thoroughbred racing continues on Sunday, with a 1 p.m. post time for the afternoon’s 10-race card.
