Friday, September 11, 2015.... Chicago Illinois - The 27th edition of Super Night will take place Saturday, September 12th at Balmoral Park. The one mile oval will host eight championship races on the thirteen race harness racing program with a special first post of 6:30 central.
 
The biggest night in Illinois racing will be a Super Night for horseplayers as well. Balmoral Park will offer four guaranteed pools totaling $135,000 on Saturday, giving players carryovers, a low takeout Pick Four and some of the biggest pools of the year to shoot at. Free program pages are now available courtesy of Track Master at www.ustrotting.com.
 
The first guaranteed pool of the night starts on race 5 with a Pick Five carryover of $7,032. The Saturday Pick Five will have a guaranteed pool of $35,000. The opening leg of the Pick Five is the $155,000 Orange and Blue Championship for two year old pacing fillies. With a final pool of $35,000, this bet would have zero takeout. The minimum bet is fifty cents.
 
The Pick Four starts on race 10. The Super Night Pick Four features four championship races on Saturday with purses of $507,000 and another guaranteed pool of $35,000. The opening leg of this multi race wager is the $92,000 Tony Maurello Championship for aged pacers featuring a spectacular field where six of the pacers possess a mark of under 1:50. The Pick Four has a one dollar minimum and is offered with a low takeout of 15 per cent.
 
Race twelve brings out ten three year olds competing in the $112,000 Pete Langley Championship. This race offers trifecta wagering with a guaranteed pool of $40,000. Last week, this trifecta pool clocked in at a season high $63,365. The Balmoral Park trifecta has a low minimum of fifty cents.
 
The final leg of the Pick Four also features the final guaranteed pool and the richest purse of the night. Race 13 on the card, the $187,000 Orange & Blue Championship for two-year-old pacers has a guaranteed pool of $25,000 for the 10-cent Hi-Five wager giving fans the "ultimate get out bet." This wager, which is wildly popular thanks to that low minimum of ten cents also brings out a very evenly matched field of ten youngsters and could produce a big payout for some lucky fans.
 
Balmoral Park has made every attempt to make sure the wagering menu for Super Night XXVII is something special. Let me personally thank horseplayers, owners and their connections for their continued support of Illinois racing.
