When Cam Dan Kadandy won the 10th race at Monticello Raceway on Wednesday, September 26 she sparked one of the biggest mutuel payoffs in Monticello Raceway history.


The 4-year-old Cam’s Magic Trick mare paid $377.00 for each two dollar wager. The $66.00 place price and the $25.40 return were mighty hefty, also.


“This could be the biggest two dollar win payoff we’ve  ever had  here at Monticello Raceway  but if it isn’t it’s certainly extraordinary ,” noted Shawn Wiles, assistant GM. “ I mean how many times in an eight- horse field does a horse go off at odds of 187 to 1.”


Greg Annaloro drove Cam Dan Kadandy, who started from the eight-hole, to a come-from-behind one length victory in a time of 2:01.1.


Trainer Tony Cuccio of Montgomery, NY joined Annaloro in the winner’s circle and couldn’t stop laughing about the rare mutuel payoff.


“We’ve been drawing bad post positions recently and going off at long prices but today’s was the longest (price) I’d ever seen a horse go off at,” Cuccio chirped through his hearty laughter. “We shocked’em…. and gave them something they’ll never forget.”
