Despite the, ahem, brisk temperatures, the Raceway's program is forging ahead as scheduled this evening, with the usual 7:10 PM first post. The card includes 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 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 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.
