20-cent wager hit for first time this season

by Justin Horowitz, Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (December 11, 2016) – One lucky horseplayer will have plenty of extra dough for the holiday shopping season after taking down the Jackpot Super High Five wager at the Meadowlands for $68,028.42

The winning ticket was purchased through the Oregon Hub.

The 20-cent wager requires a horseplayer to correctly select the top five finishers in order. The jackpot amount pays out only if there is a single winning ticket.

Saturday’s winning wager featured a carryover of $57,161. The carryover has continued to build since September as no one had successfully taken down the jackpot.

The winning sequence of 4-6-3-5-8 was led by 13-to-1 long shot To Beach His Own followed by 50/1 Twincreeks Jack, 65/1 Last Best Chance,  1/5 favorite Stimulus Plan, and 37/1 Makeoutlikeapandit.

This is the second time in the past two weekends that one of the track’s two Jackpot Super High Fives have paid out the jackpot. The fifth race jackpot was paid out for $20,020 last weekend.
