YONKERS, NY, Saturday, January 4, 2014--The long national nightmare is over....after 16 days off, Yonkers Raceway's 2014 season begins Monday night.
The first of 236 scheduled programs features a dozen-race dossier, and with it, a $10,000 guaranteed Pick 5 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, the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
The Pick 5 offers that $10,000 guaranteed pool every Monday and Tuesday (in conjunction with the US Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program), with program pages for the "guarantee" days available for perusal at www.yonkersraceway.com.
The Raceway's five-night-per-week live schedule is back in full force, 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.
