Saturday’s Cross Country Pick 5 Pays $373 To Winners

Saturday’s Cross Country Pick 5 featuring action from Belmont, Woodbine, and Delaware Park paid $373.25 for selecting all five winners for the 50-cent wager. The total pool was $112,680.

Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario started the sequence, as the favorite Belichick bested Tecumseh’s War by a head to win a 1 1/16-mile allowance tilt over the all-weather track in Race 7. Trained by Josie Carroll and ridden by Kazushi Kimura, Belichick returned $3.30 on a $2 win bet, completing the course in 1:44.40.

Belmont hosted the second leg, with Wolfie’s Dynaghost going gate-to-wire to win an allowance optional claiming race going 1 1/16 miles in Race 8. Moved off the turf to the main track, the race saw the Tom Albertrani trained Wolfie’s Dynaghost, a half-brother to stablemate Sadler’s Joy, hit the wire in 1:43.17 paying $10.80. Jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. was in the irons.

Delaware Park in Wilmington, De. hosted the first stakes of the wager as heavy favorite Crazy Beautiful won the $300,000 Grade 3 Delaware Oaks for sophomore fillies going 1 1/16 miles on the main track in Race 8. The Ken McPeek trainee, ridden by Hall of Famer Mike Smith, cruised to a six-length win in a final time of 1:46.33. Crazy Beautiful returned $2.60.

Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y. also got in on the stakes action, as Truth Hurts topped a pared-down four-horse field in the $100,000 Perfect Sting for fillies and mares 4-years-old and up in Race 9. Originally scheduled for one mile on the turf, the contest was moved to the main track due to heavy rain. Truth Hurts, entered by trainer and co-owner Chad Summers for the main track only, capitalized on the opportunity winning by 5 3/4 lengths over Piedi Bianchi in a final time of 1:37.48. With Luis Saez picking up the mount, Truth Hurts won her first race of her 4-year-old campaign, paying $18.

Advocating edged Tappitty Tappitty by a neck in the finale a 1 1/16-mile turf allowance optional claimer, in Race 9 at Woodbine to conclude the wager. Trained by Michael Stidham and ridden by Gary Boulanger, Advocating hit the wire in 1:44.69 and paid $8.30.

The minimum bet for the multi-track, multi-race wager is 50 cents. Wagering on the Cross Country Pick 5 is also available on track, on ADW platforms, and at simulcast facilities across the country. Every week will feature a mandatory payout of the net pool.
