The superfecta was by far the most lucrative wager on the menu. Fifty cent supers averaged $1,993 led by Saturday nights 6th race payoff of $12,783 on a 50 cent bet.

The $5 dollar quinella generated two very generous payoffs this weekend. 2-1 favorite Wesley Snip combined with 30-1 longshot The Long Goodbye for a $795 payoff on Saturday. The following night,4-5 favorite Fox Valley Lola was joined by 35-1 bomber VL Fern for a $5 payoff of $477.50.The $5 Quinella is offered on race 6 only.

The new 50 cent Pick Five is an instant hit. Sunday a one day carryover of $5,421 swelled the Pick Five pool to $30,983.This bodes very well for Maywood Parks Thursday Pick Five carryover. The Balmoral Pick Five starts on Race 7 nightly.
