ONE BETTOR TAKES DOWN $109,094 IN PLACE PICK 9 WAGER
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Sept. 27, 2009) – Buoyed by a carryover of more than $53,000 and the prospect of a closing day mandatory payoff, more than $98,000 was bet into Sunday’s Place Pick 9 pool at Arlington Park and when the dust settled, one lucky player who wagered through TVG correctly selected nine of nine and took down the entire major pool of $109,094.10.
An eight of nine consolation returned $844 to those handicappers who fell one short of a perfect ticket.
The Place Pick 9, a wager new to Arlington Park for the 2009 meet, requires the bettor to correctly select the official winner or second-place horse in nine consecutive races, beginning with the first race on the card.
Arlington Park – the Chicago area’s premier Thoroughbred racetrack located in Arlington Heights, Ill. – will run a 91-day meet in 2010 from Thursday, April 29 through Sunday, Sept. 26. Arlington Park, whose parent company is Churchill Downs Incorporated (Nasdaq: CHDN), also operates 10 off-track, simulcast-wagering facilities: Trackside Arlington Park (Arlington Heights), Trackside Chicago, Trackside Quad City Downs (East Moline), Trackside Rockford, Trackside Waukegan, Fat Sam’s Bar & Grill featuring Trackside OTB in Lockport, Lucky’s featuring Trackside OTB in South Elgin, Nicolino’s featuring Trackside OTB in McHenry, Tad’s Sports Bar & Grill featuring Trackside OTB in South Beloit and Salerno-Pincente Ristorante featuring Trackside OTB in Hodgkins.
