Somebody breaks bank at Laurel

March 23, 1992

One unidentified racing fan held the single winning ticket in yesterday's Double Triple at Laurel. The 3-6-2 combination in the fifth race, the second half of the Double Triple, paid $375,350,40, a Laurel record single-ticket payoff.

The previous Laurel record was $314,366, set in 1987.

After the mandatory 20 percent federal tax, the ticket is worth $300,280.

The Laurel ticket office had no information on the winner, who did not immediately come forth, but said the ticket was purchased at the track.

The state record payoff came at Pimlico last year when several auto body workers shared a $414,243 Double Triple.
