On Wednesday night (January 31), it's time for another renewal of the popular Bal-Cal Pick 4 Challenge at Cal-Expo.
The $1 wager combines two races at Balmoral Park in Chicago with two events at this track and comes attached with a $25,000-guaranteed pool.
The racing secretaries at both ovals attempt to come up with the best races for this sequence, concentrating on the largest and most contentious events of the evening. There have been some sweet payoffs for just a buck, with three of the last 18 Bal-Cals lighting up the toteboard to the tune of $20,000, $19,000 and $18,000.
While last week's combination saw logical winners at both tracks for a payout of just under $500, there is always the chance that some real fireworks will result when you put together the two victors from Illinois and the pair from the West Coast. Sharpen those pencils and give it a shot.
