Arlington: Bridge jumper barely avoids jumping

Email

Have you ever seen bridge-jump show betting on a horse who's 9-5 in a race with a 1-1 favorite? That's what just happened in race 3 on Sunday at Arlington. There were anxious moments for whomever dumped 10s of thousands of dollars to show on Trigger Fish Lane, the 9-5 second-choice in a field of 5, but she managed to hold on for third while less than a length in front of the (mildly) closing fourth-place finisher. Drat.
