Hollywood: Pick 5 handle soars


Handle on the newly-created 50-cent pick 5 soared to $184,217 on Friday evening, much higher than the $103,291 the first time the bet was offered on Thursday afternoon's opening day of the spring-summer meeting.

The bet, which covers the first five races, features a lower takeout of 14 percent.

The first race was won by Quite an Honour ($9), who finished a nose in front of Money Included. Brass Plate finished third, a neck behind Money Included, in the starter allowance over 1 1-16 miles.
