HUNCH BET OF THE WEEKEND

Last Friday at Woodbine, the hunch bet players were smiling when Quarterback and Namath showed up in the entries for the fifth race.

As it turned out, they had plenty of smile about when Quarterback, under Eurico Rosa da Silva, rallied to beat favored Namath by a neck. The chestnut two-year-old daughter of Bold Executive, Quarterback, trained by Kevin Attard and owned by Petra and Yvonne Schwabe.

Quarterback paid $27.90 for the win, combining with Namath for a $75.30 exacta.
