‘THE FIELD’ IS WINNING TICKET IN INAUGURAL JOCKEY CHALLENGE WAGER
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (May 28, 2007) – With three wins for a total of $33.20, “all other jockeys” was the winning bet in Arlington Park’s Jockey Challenge Wager. “All other jockeys” (a.k.a. “the field”) was sent off as the 8-5 wagering favorite and returned $5.40. There was only win wagering in the Jockey Challenge Wager.
The innovative wager required bettors to select the jockey that would accumulate the highest combined win payouts during Monday’s fourth through ninth races. The number of winning mounts during the sequence was inconsequential – only combined win payouts mattered. Arlington Park offered wagering on seven individual jockeys and an eighth option consisting of all other riders.
The winners of the six races included in the Jockey Challenge Wager, riders and payoffs were:
Race 4 – #4 – Xcellent Thunder (Israel Ocampo, $5.60)

The total pool on the Jockey Challenge Wager was $6,201. The Jockey Challenge Wager will be offered four more times during the 2007 Arlington Park meet – on Father’s Day (June 17), July 4, Arlington Million Day (Aug. 11) and Labor Day (Sept. 3).
Arlington Park – the Chicago area’s premier Thoroughbred racetrack located in Arlington Heights, Ill. – will run a 94-day meet in 2007 from Friday, May 4 through Sunday, Sept. 16.
