Buoyed by a $4,535.53 carryover from Saturday night, the regular Monday $10,000 guaranteed pool was dwarfed when $20,140 was poured in through the precincts.
The winning combination of 1-7-1-3-5 returned $82.75...not bad considering the largest win mutuel in the sequence was eight bucks and there were a pair of odds-on numbers as well as a just-over-even-money proposition.
The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager offered on races 5 through 9 nightly. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners, the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
The Pick 5 offers a $10,000 guaranteed pool every Monday and Tuesday (in conjunction with the US Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program), with program pages for those "guarantee" days (including Monday's 25-large) available for perusal at www.yonkersraceway.com.
The Raceway's five-night-per-week live schedule continues, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 PM. Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting now available daily.by Frank Drucker for Yonkers Raceway
