LAUREL -- Those show mutuels on yesterday's Laurel Race Course simulcast of the Sanford Stakes from Saratoga are no misprint.
Laurel publicity director Damon Thayer said one bettor at the Pimlico intertrack facility wagered "about $11,000" to show on heavily favored Salt Lake. After the colt was eased in the stretch, the Tote board flashed big payoffs on the top three finishers.
Caller I.D., the race winner, paid $7.20 to win -- and $19.60 to show. And the 2-3 finishers, Pick Up the Phone and Money Run, paid $21.80 and $28.60 to show, respectively.
From a show pool of $15,323, Salt Lake drew $13,708. The colt had won his only two starts by a total of 21 lengths.
