YONKERS, NY, Wednesday, October 15, 2014—Just a friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Thursday night’s Pick 5 wager begins with a carryover of $3,618.58.
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 Tuesday), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
The Raceway's five-night-per-week live schedule continues, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (trio of stakes eliminations) at 7:10 PM. Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
