YONKERS' MONDAY PICK 5 PROVES QUITE POPULAR

YONKERS' MONDAY PICK 5 PROVES QUITE POPULAR
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Monday, November 18, 2013. The players came out with both fists for Yonkers Raceway,s Monday night Pick 5.
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 Friday and Saturday), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
Buoyed by a $25,000 guaranteed pool (including a two-day carryover of $16,174.33), $6,017 of fresh money was wagered. Going into the final race, all combinations were accounted for, with the winning sequence of 7/1/1/4/2 returning $263.75 for every four bits.
The Pick 5 offers a $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 now available daily
