Yonkers' Friday Pick-5 offers $10,000 guaranteed pool

Yonkers, NY --- Yonkers Raceway's Friday (Jan. 31) 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 five through nine 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 (sixth race--Filly and Mare Pace, eighth race--Trot).

The Pick-5 offers a $10,000 regular guaranteed pool every Monday and Tuesday (in conjunction with the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program), with program pages for those days available for perusal at www.yonkersraceway.com.
