Santa Anita: Show plunge fails


A major show bet on Schuylkill Punch failed spectacularly when the 3-5 favorite could only finish fourth in a field of five.

Race winner Palio Prince paid $28.80 to win and $40.60 to show. Runner-up Aqua Fever, a 3-1 shot, paid $29 to show and third-place finish Bryan Daniel, a 3-1 shot, paid $22.20 to show.

Schuylkill Punch was urged by jockey Patrick Valenzuela on the turn off the six-furlong race for maiden claimers and lost third late to Bryan Daniel. Palio Prince finished a nose in front of Aqua River.

Of the $123,713 bet to show, $115,200 was bet on Schuylkill Punch.
