Lexington, KY --- Despite having the largest Pick-4 pool of the 2014 season at more than $11,200 on Sunday evening (Aug. 31), fans were only able to come up with three of four winners in the wager, creating a $6,347 carryover into the Thursday night card (Sept. 4) at The Red Mile.
The sequence began with a second choice, Noha (Brad Hanners), who returned $7.00 for the win in an overnight event, followed by 4-5 favorite Tinder (Tyler Smith), who won his third consecutive by taking the $175,000 Kentucky Sires Stakes final for 3-year-old colt trotters.
Even with the large amount of live tickets heading into the third leg after the formful beginning, it didn’t take long to send everyone overboard with Always A Tiger sneaking up the inside for a nose victory on the off track at 65-1 ($132.80) for driver Don Harmon.
With only the one longshot, there were zero live tickets heading into the fourth and final leg, and even the 3-2 favorite, Fudge (Dave Palone), could not aid anyone in making a big score after an easy victory.
The Red Mile, in conjunction with the USTA Strategic Wagering Program, is happy to announce the Pick-4 will have a $20,000 guaranteed pool for Thursday evening (Sept. 4).
