Averill Park resident is track's final big bettor
Mary Burns will make the biggest bet of her life on Saturday.
The Averill Park resident is the fifth and final contender who will get a chance to make a $15,000 win wager, which is part of a Saratoga 150 promotion funded by Marylou Whitney and John Hendrickson. Burns will have to make her bet in the Woodward Stakes on Saturday.
In the first four weeks of this promotion, two of the lucky bettors have won, taking away about $22,000 each time. This past Saturday, Saratoga Springs resident Aaron Ditch watched the Travers with Whitney and Hendrickson, as his $15,000 bet on Verrazano didn't pay off.
The Woodward is the 10th race on Saturday.
