Pacific Classic Day Better Than Reported

Del Mar logo
Final handle numbers for Sunday’s TVG Pacific Classic Day card were registered Monday morning and additional Advanced Deposit Wagering (ADW) bets drove the figures even beyond the track’s estimates of the seventh-best wagering day in its history.

Del Mar officials had made a conservative estimate of likely ADW bets Sunday evening based on the previous year’s totals and arrived at a handle figure of $22,363,307 for the 11-race card. But when all monies were tallied Monday – including approximately an additional $600,000 in ADW wagers -- the true final figure rose to $23,000,368, the fourth-highest handle in track history.

ADW wagering in the state of California this year during the Del Mar meeting now has shown an increase of more than 25% through the first 30 days of the 37-day session.

Del Mar’s Sunday program drew 34,482 on track as they watched the 3-year-old eastern invader Dullahan triumph in the 22nd running of the $1-million TVG Pacific Classic. The betting on the day’s card was enhanced by a $570,012 two-day Pick Six carryover that drew $2,946,679 in “new” money, meaning the total pool reached $3,516,691. Twenty-two winning tickets were recorded on the bet, each worth $97,462.80.
