20-cent wager had not been hit since new season began

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (November 11, 2016) – Veterans Day proved to be a memorable one for one lucky horseplayer that hit the Meadowlands Jackpot Super High Five for $13,395.06.

The winning ticket was purchased at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa.

The wager featured a carryover of just under $10,000 coming into Friday night. The Race Five winning sequence featured 19/1 winner Harper Lee followed by 57/1 Lastladystanding, 17/1 St Lads Morgan, 2/1 Paydaze On The Way and 3/2 favorite First Best for fifth.

Nobody had hit the Jackpot Super High Five at the Meadowlands since the Fall Meet began.

The parade of long shots also triggered a massive trifecta payout. There was only one winning ticket, purchased for $1, which returned $21,424.80. The ticket was purchased on-track at the Meadowlands.
