TORONTO, May 17 - On Saturday evening's 12-race programme, Woodbine Entertainment Group offered a mandatory payout on its newest wager, the Jackpot Hi 5.

Over the past few months, the wager grew in popularity and resulted in an enormous pool size of which $656,386 was carried over into Saturday evening's programme.

Always scheduled as the last dash of the evening, the Jackpot Hi 5 received an additional $1,345,640 wagered into the pool, giving the pool a total of $2,002,026.

The result was a payout of $43,795.75 on a $1 wager ($8,759.15 on a $.20 cent wager) after Drain Daddy found the wire first in 1:51 at odds of 4-1.

The top five finishers are as follows:

1. Drain Daddy

2. Rock Me Amastreos

3. Junior K

4. Speed Again

5. Real Rocker

The Jackpot Hi-5 requires horseplayers to select the first five finishers in exact order on the last race of the program.

The wager, which offers a 20-cent minimum, also has a takeout of 15 per cent, a continent-equalling low.

Woodbine's final winter/spring card is Monday, May 19, before racing shifts to Mohawk Racetrack, beginning on Thursday, May 22.
