For Tuesday, July 29, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino has increased to $12,500 the pool guarantee for its Pick 4, in association with the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering Initiative.
Although a $5,000 Pick 4 pool guarantee is a regular feature of Monday and Tuesday cards, The Meadows sweetened the guarantee when Monday’s Pick 4 was uncovered, resulting in a $3,298.27 carryover.
Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (Races 4-7) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.
