An unidentified bettor in a crowd of 8,235 became the first winner of the new Super Bet and collected $29,466 on a $1 ticket at Sportsman’s Park, track officials said.

To win the Super Bet, bettors have to select the first two horses to finish - in order - in the third and fourth races, and the first three finishers in order in the fifth race, all on a single ticket. The minimum wager is $1.

The new bet was not won during the first four days of the season, and the pool was carried over each day.

The featured $24,300 Bold Favorite Purse was captured by Riviera, who used a burst of speed in the stretch to defeat Parisian Dust by half a length.
