WASHINGTON, PA, July 14, 2014 -- On Tuesday, July 15, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will offer a $35,000 guarantee -- largest since the track began offering pool guarantees -- for its Pick 5 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative. The Meadows added the "instant" guarantee after Tuesday's Pick 5 was uncovered, resulting in a three-day carryover of $11,587.31.
In addition, The Meadows will offer a $5,000-guaranteed pool for the Pick 4, a regular feature of the track's Monday and Tuesday cards.
Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (Races 4-7) and Pick 5 (Races 12-16) 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.
First post for Tuesday's program, which features a $236,210 Pennsylvania Sires Stake for 2-year-old colt and gelding trotters, is 12:55 PM.
