JESSE CAMPBELL IS WINNING TICKET IN JOCKEY CHALLENGE WAGER ON FATHER’S DAY AT ARLINGTON PARK
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (June 17, 2007) – With a $22.40 victory in the seventh race, Jesse Campbell turned out to be the winning bet in Arlington Park’s Jockey Challenge Wager. Campbell, listed as program number 1 in the wager, was sent off at odds of 9-1 and returned $21.80. 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 Sunday’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 12 individual jockeys and a 13th option consisting of all other riders.
The winners of the six races included in the Jockey Challenge Wager, riders and payoffs were:
Race 4 – #1 – Dottie Booth (Shane Laviolette*, $13.00)
* - denotes jockey part of the “all other jockeys” wagering interest
The total pool on the Jockey Challenge Wager was $4,441. The Jockey Challenge Wager is scheduled to be offered three more times during the 2007 Arlington Park meet – on 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.
