YONKERS, NY, Monday, May 21, 2018—A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Tuesday evening’s (May 22nd) Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $5,145.55 and a $15,000 guaranteed pool. The guarantee is in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program.
The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races 6 through 10 Tuesday night (7 through 11 if at least that many races carded). It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Monday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
