YONKERS, NY, Thursday, January 30, 2014—Yonkers Raceway’s Friday Pick 5 now comes complete with a $10,000 guaranteed pool.
No one waltzed away with Thursday’s gimmick, so Friday begins with a $6,246.86 carryover.
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, the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program. Friday’s agenda includes both co-featured Open Handicaps (6th race--Filly and Mare Pace, 8th race—Trot).
The Pick 5 offers a $10,000 “regular” guaranteed pool every Monday and Tuesday (in conjunction with the US Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program), with program pages for those 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 daily.
