YONKERS, NY, Sunday, January 19, 2014--It's not for lack of effort, however Yonkers Raceway has been unable to "give away" the Pick 5 over the last two racing nights.
So, since no one took down the wager either Friday or Saturday, Monday night's wager--enriched by a double carryover of $10,368.68--features a $25,000 guaranteed pool.
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 (as was the case Friday/Saturday), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
The Pick 5 offers a $10,000 "regular" 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.
