LONGSHOT WINNER AT TURF PARADISE RAN UNDER WRONG NAME:
"Arizona Department of Racing officials are investigating how two runners from the barn of trainer Dan McFarlane erroneously ran in each otherís name in Saturday's seventh race at Turf Paradise.--end quote
Cavour, carrying saddle cloth 5, was credited with the victory at odds of 29-1 in the $15,000 mile and a half starter stakes on the turf, but when the horse was identified at the test barn, his lip tattoo matched Sir Searsucker. The No. 7 saddle cloth was assigned to Sir Searsucker, but it was actually Cavour who carried that number to a last-place finish of nine runners.
Cavour was 15-1 on the morning line while the more accomplished Sir Searsucker was 6-1 and went off at 7-1."
"A total of $51,084 was bet in the win-place-show pools on that race. By comparison, the dayís other WPS pools were: $14,649, $28,153, $36,349, $18,879, $24,850, $27,247 and $37,748."--end quote
This race was for $15000
There were 2 Stake races on the card for $35000 each
$51000 wagered compared to $26000 and $37000 on the Stakes Races...
Tell me that there wasn't something fishy here...
|Total crap the trainer first realizing his horse had the wrong number when he saw the win photo.|
It boggles the mind to imagine the connections: trainer -- groom -- hell, the OWNER -- all failed to notice their horse out there on the track in the post parade -- warming up -- and facing up to the gate -- WEARING THE WRONG F*'ING NUMBER.
