YONKERS' THURSDAY PICK 5 OFFERS $25,000 GUARANTEED POOL

YONKERS' THURSDAY PICK 5 OFFERS $25,000 GUARANTEED POOL
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Wednesday, January 15, 2014.Youve been put on notice and even given extra time for homework.

Since no one took down Yonkers Raceways Tuesday night Pick 5--complete with its $10,000 guarantee--the entire pool (minus takeout) of $7,500 gets rolled over. That carryover triggers a $25,000 guaranteed pool into Thursday nights (Jan. 16) program.
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 last time a 25-large incentive was in play (albeit with a double carryover of just over $16,000) was mid-November, and more than $62,000 of fresh money was wagered.
The Pick 5 offers a $10,000 guaranteed pool every Monday and Tuesday (in conjunction with the US Trotting Associations Strategic Wagering Program), with program pages for those 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.
