$65K minus pool at Arapahoe


Meadow Dancer's win in the Colorado Stallion Stakes on Monday resulted in some unusual wagering numbers on a long race day at Arapahoe Park.

The $266,914 amount bet on the Stallion Stakes by far exceeded the amount bet on any individual 10-race program this meet. Of that total, $244,942 was wagered to show on Meadow Dancer, which resulted in a minus show pool of $65,021. Meadow Dancer returned $2.60, $2.20, and $2.20.

Twenty races were run at Arapahoe Park on Monday after Saturday's card was canceled because of a power failure. The planned Saturday card, which included trials to the Aug. 12 Mile High Futurity for Quarter Horses, was run before the regularly scheduled Monday card.

The combined all-sources handle for the day was $463,432.
