YONKERS, NY, Monday, October 14, 2013—A rare double-carryover for Yonkers Raceway’s Pick 5 makes Tuesday night’s wager is as enticing as any around.
After no one took home Monday night’s grand prize, the ensuing carryover of $13,097.90 means the “traditional” $10,000 guaranteed Tuesday pool now swells to two-and-a-half times that…or a cool $25,000.
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 (as was the case both Saturday and Monday), the entire pool (minus takeout) carries over 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 continues, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 PM. Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available around the NYRA schedule.
