WIDGER SETS NEW BALMORAL RECORD WITH EIGHT WINS
Widger started his record breaking evening behind OG’s Marie D ($4.40) in the second race. He made it back-to-back victories by taking the third race with longshot Fox Valley Fletch ($38.80). The 45-year-old Widger found the winner's circle again in race six with Prime Minister ($9.20). After falling short in his next two drives Widger then piloted Tufsun Beach ($7.60) to victory in race nine. He was right back in the charmed circle after race 10 with the Paul Stafford trained Mack Hill ($5.80). Widger then closed out the night by sweeping the late pick three in races 12, 13 & 14 with Metermaster N ($5.80), Tin Cup Too ($8.40) and Kabenero ($7.80).
The Sam Widger late pick three combination of 3-7-5 returned $63.80 on a $1 ticket.
