As the night grew longer and longer at Buffalo Raceway on Wednesday (Jan. 31), the win prices got bigger and bigger, as the longshots ruled the 13-race program.

There were six double-digit win prices on the evening with Stonebridge Marvel the largest, as David McNeight, III steered the five-year-old gelding to a huge $82.50 victory from the rail.

Things started to get wild in the second race, as Gorgeous View scored a $16.80 decision. It was then bombs away after that. Utah Beach posted a $19.20 win mutuel, while Summit City Turbo was next in line with a $19.60 victory. Pistopackinpiper hit the win column at $24.20, Tampa Bay Escape followed that with a $37.40 triumph, and Stonebridge Marvel capped the chaos with the massive $82.50 score.

The chalk players were pleased along the way too, as six post-time favourites found the winner's circle.

Larry Stalbaum topped the driver's statistics with three wins, while Shawn Gray, Billy Davis, Jr. and Ray Fisher, Jr. notched doubles. Trainer Kimberly Asher had a pair of victories.

Thanks to the longshot parade, there will be a $1,001 carryover in the Pick 5 Saturday night (Feb. 3), beginning in the second race. It is the first carryover of the season. The 13-race card has a scheduled 6:00 p.m. post time.
