Both of Thursday night’s pools for Maywood Parks Pick Four and Pick Five wagers got a boost when no one correctly selected those wagers last Friday night.
The Pick Four (races four through seven) will have a $2,362 carryover, while the Pick Five (races eight through twelve) starts off only $25 short of a $3,000 carryover.
Two $8,000-Plus Superfectas
We had two different Superfecta payoffs of over $8,000 on last Friday night’s Maywood Park program.
One lucky eighth race player was $8,185 richer after cashing in a winning 6-9-8-2 Super combination, keyed by the $36.60 winner Every Day Hero. In the last (13th) race No. 6 Im A Hot Sport ($32.60) keyed the winning 6-2-9-8 Superfecta that popped at $8,589.
