Big race Saturdays at Photo Finish™ LIVE have always been appointment viewing, but as real money purse sizes steadily increase and the performances on the racetracks become that much more meaningful, taking a look back each Monday morning once the dust has settled is even more of a necessity.
This past Saturday, PFL celebrated a massive record-breaking Third Time Derby purse prize, as well as a huge slate of big real money Crown Derby races.
Before we turn our attention to this week’s action, let’s recap how this past weekend went down.
Third Time Dery: Ba11thazar Wins Record Purse
On Saturday evening, Ba11thazar Mangers and its horse The Pelennor Fields took down the lion’s share of the Third Time Derby’s 64,000 $DERBY pot – a Photo Finish™ LIVE record! Remember when races were just for fun and learning? Seeing PFL races with $800 on the line makes that seem like ages ago.
Congratulations to Ba11thazar on the massive 30,080 $DERBY win!
