If you play superfectas when you bet the races, you’ll be interested in this — the super at Hollywood Park in Saturday’s fourth race paid more than $144,000 for a buck. Nobody had it for a dollar, but seven tickets had the 10-cent super that was worth $14,448.15 when the Paul Aguirre-trained Siempre Esperanza won at first asking at 37-1 and 27-1 shot Rags for Ben came home second.
Our Lady Gaga, at 6-1, was third and 115-1 long shot Girls Lacrosse came home fourth to complete the historic superfecta. It was the second-highest $1 wager in the history of the track, even though no one had the winning $1 dollar ticket.
Two races later, Brice Blanc, who rode Girls Lacrosse in the fourth, booted home 23-1 outsider Bench Glory for trainer Sean McCarthy in her career debut to help key a $30,000-plus superfecta. The 10-cent super returned $3,074.08 when a parade of long shots — Amelia Rose (20-1), Little Red Dress (40-1) and My Brite Caroline (10-1) — finished second through fourth.
The long shots through the first three legs of the pick six ensured there will more than likely be a three-day carryover. Threre was a carryover of $312,000-plus for Saturday’s pick six pool and Sunday’s figures to be massive.
