EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - After longshots scored in the third, fourth and fifth races Saturday night at The Meadowlands, the track's 20-cent Pick-5 wager did not yield a winning ticket, setting up what could be a gigantic pool when harness racing resumes Saturday, Jan. 2.

Those who correctly selected four winners cashed in for $312.78.

The bet started innocently enough as the 9-5 second choice and 2-1 favorite won the first two races on the card. But then the bombs fell as 14-1, 50-1 and 36-1 outsiders took the final three legs of the sequence, leading to a carryover of $46,731.16.

As a result, Big M management - in conjunction with the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering initiative - has guaranteed next Saturday's pool at $150,000.

Free past performances will be available for the Pick-5 at playmeadowlands.com.
