It's A Good Bet

Quite a race at the Belmont Stakes.  For those of you who didn't watch the final leg of the Triple Crown, let me note first who didn't win.  Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom finished sixth.  Preakness winner Shackleford finished fifth.  Two other relatively popular horses, Nehro and Mucho Macho Man, finished fourth and seventh.  Yep, all the top horses finished out of the money.

The winner was 24-1 longshot Ruler On Ice.  Place went to Stay Thirsty, show to Brilliant Speed, neither of which had impressed the handicappers.  If you had bought a $2 trifecta ticket predicting they'd finish in that order, the payout was $9268 dollars.  So there weren't a lot of happy people at the track, but there were a few blissful ones.
