NOT YOUR USUAL PAYOFF

DEWEY FORGET,

FOR THE PRESS DEMOCRAT

There was an unusual pari-mutuel payoff in the fourth race. When County Kildare, the 1-2 favorite, ran fourth, it created a huge negative show pool. High Tune ran past Plaza Queen in the final yards to return $26.80, $8.20, and $24.00 across the board. Plaza Queen paid $4.60 to place, but $13.00 to show, and Shesourkindagal $24.20 to show. There was $28,656.00 wagered on County Kildare to show, almost $10,000 more than wagered on the Steve Specht runner to win.
