A single ticket was able to connect on Thursday night's Jackpot Hi-5 at Mohawk Racetrack for a payout of $43,174.75 (USD). It is rare to see just a single winning Jackpot Hi-5 ticket when the favorite wins, but that's exactly what happened in Thursday's finale.
A total of $14,279 was wagered into the Jackpot Hi-5 pool, which had a carryover of $44,421 heading into Thursday's card. The winning ticket was a straight $0.20 wager 6-5-8-7-3. The horseplayer made the winning wager with TwinSpires through the Portland, Oregon hub.
Dorabella, the 6/5 favorite, was an easy-winner in the $10,000 event for pacing fillies and mares. The top-five was then completed by a trio of longshots and the second-choice. Just one ticket correctly had the combination of 6-5-8-7-3 to score a $43,174.75 (USD) payday.
Here are the top-five finishers from Thursday's Jackpot Hi-5 race.
