Santa Anita: show plunge cashes, but why bother?

Email

Lichtenstein won Thursday's first race, for maiden-claimers, earning a 5 percent profit for those who plunged to show on him. It wasn't a pretty win -- for a while he was struggling to remain in the top three -- but he got there. Of the $59,517 bet to show, $53,108 was bet on him. Congratulations to those who cashed. Oh, just one word of advice. You need to hit 20 or 21 of these bets just to break even. Buena suerte.
