Crete, IL — The winners of Sunday’s Pick 5 races at Balmoral Park went off at final odds of 9-2, 5-2, 2-1, 3-2 and 8-5. It could have been hit. It should have been hit. For some unknown reason, the Sunday Pick 5 was not.
Maybe it was the low pool because of the Bears playing on Sunday evening.
Either way, it is hard to figure how no one could put a winning five-for-five ticket together. But that is exactly what happened on Sunday night at Balmoral Park.
The good news is that $3,197 will be carried over for Tuesday’s Pick 5 wager. The estimated pool on Tuesday’s Pick 5 is $15,000. The average fifty cent payoff is $2,290 (thru September 18).
Tuesday’s first post is 7:20 p.m. (CDT).
