Re(10): Daytona mandatory 50c Pick 6 payout at special matinee today Posted on January 1, 2019 at 02:12:42 PM by hudepohl
Sounds like an incredible time. I had Black Tie Affair in that Classic, you couldn't go to wrong with Jerry Bailey in the irons.
Remember the Pick 7 two years later when Arcangues won the Classic. Wish I had bet on Bailey that day, 133-1, damn. The story goes that two people had that Pick 7 which paid 1.5 million dollars. One of the winners had accidentally been given the 11 Arcangues when he actually wanted the 1 which was an entry of Bertrando, Marquetry and Best Pal, for the Classic. Apparently he realized the error after he left the betting window but was "shit out of luck" because he didn't catch it at the window. What a lucky error, the mutual clerk probably went to hit 1 and hit the 11 below it. Nowadays he probably would have bet on a computer and just canceled the incorrect ticket. Replies:
