A bridgejumping show bettor blew a big wad in Monday night's 9th race at the Mountaineer Park thoroughbred track in Chester, West Virginia.

The 4/5 favorite, Irishamericandream, accounting for $28,408 of the $31,028 in the show pool, finished 5th, 2 3/4 lengths behind the third horse. He dueled on the lead for the first half-mile of the 5 1/2-furlong race before tiring in the stretch.

The favorite's failure set off some huge show payoffs:

The winner, Wild Pursuit, was absolutely hammered on the final odds flash (see below) and paid $10.00, $7.60 and $33.20. The place horse (17-1) paid $14.00 and $84.40, while the third horse (7-1) paid $36.60 to show.

Interestingly, as the race was being run, there was a major betting plunge on the final odds change, as the winner was hammered from 12-1 to 4-1 on the last flash while the favorite jumped from 1/5 to 4/5. The winner scored by a length-and-a-half.

Ya think somebody knew something?

(Certainly not the guy who bet the favorite to show!!!)

No empathy or sympathy for such an insane wager....
Oh sorry Mac...
