Meadowlands: Record win payoff of $366.60 creates carryovers in multiple pools

Email

Rocket Reign, a 4-year-old maiden making his 16th lifetime start, paid a Meadowlands record $366.60 to win for a $2 ticket in Friday’s sixth race.

Owned and trained by Francis Meares, who came into the day with a 1-for-52 record in 2013, Rocket Reign had not finished better than sixth or lost by less than nine lengths in all five starts this season. Friday’s mile-and-70-yard turf race for $18,000 maiden claimers was the fourth time in his last five starts that Rocket Reign went off at 85-1 or higher.

Jockey Cory Orm rode the rail aboard Rocket Reign around the far turn and pushed his mount past pacesetter and 7-5 favorite Media Groupie in late stretch to prevail by 1 ¼ lengths.

The previous track record of $354.80 for a $2 win wager was set by Great Normand in winning the 1980 Meadowlands Cup.

Rocket Reign’s win resulted in a trio of carryovers for Saturday’s card, which begins at 2:15 p.m. Eastern.  The pick four carryover will be $5,707.22; the pick five, $7,739.26; and the Jersey Six $556.02.

Only at the buggies do you see payoffs like this. This is why they call it Wresting on Wheels.
