Istrue won Wednesday's first race at Gulfstream, leading a first through fifth finish that resulted in the Rolling Super Hi 5 being hit with a payoff of $1,109.40 for a $1 bet.
There were multiple tickets that had a combination with this order.
First -- 2 Istrue
Second -- 3 Samus
Third -- 4 Pampam
Fourth -- 9 Cheri's Win
Fifth -- 7 Starship Tammy
Gulfstream went into the day with a carryover of $17,877,39 on the bet because on Sunday, the most recent race day, there were no winning tickets on the Super Hi 5 in the last three races.
A total of $36,441 was bet on the Super Hi 5 in the race. Gulfstream added that pool (minus the 18 percent takeout) to the carryover to pay off winning bettors.
Gulfstream makes a payout on the bet only if there are one or more tickets with the first five finishers in correct order. Otherwise, it puts the race's Super Hi 5 bet into the carryover.
Wednesday's first race was six furlongs on dirt for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up that had never won two races. It was a $6,250 claimer with a $15,000 purse.
Istrue took an early lead and was never headed
as she won by 4 1/2 lengths in 1:11.16 on a track listed as fast. Jose Caraballo rode Istrue for trainer Ricky Griffith.
Istrue and Starship Tammy were the co 2-1 favorites in the eight-horse field.
There were no winning Super Hi 5 tickets in the second race. The Super Hi 5 pool for the race was only $595, and was carried over unto he third race.
As usual, it probably will take several "non hit" races for the Super Hi 5 to reach a carryover size that will feed on itself.
