By Staff Report | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Avoiding the well-known curse of favorites losing on Saturdays at the Saratoga Race Course, Spa City resident Adam McNeill and his wife, Jennifer Runkel, claimed $21,000 after placing a $15,000 win wager on Wise Dan, the 2012 Horse of the Year who captured the Grade II, $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap on Saturday, August 10.

Wise Dan, who paid $2.80 on a $2 win bet, won the Fourstardave for the second consecutive year.

McNeill and his wife placed the $15,000 wager using money provided by Marylou Whitney and John Hendrickson, as part of the Saratoga 150 celebration.

The couple is expecting their first child in September and plans to use the windfall to start a college education fund.
