Yonkers' Monday Pick-5 gets attention

Yonkers' Monday Pick-5 gets attention
Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - by Frank Drucker, publicity director, Yonkers Raceway

Yonkers, NY---Yonkers Raceway's Monday Pick-5 attracted more than the usual interest.

A $10,000 guaranteed pool began with a $4,039.56 carryover and ended with $16,887 of new money.

The winning combination of 3/2/3/8/5 returned a generous $1,415.50 for every half-a-buck.

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.

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

The bombardiers were out for the evening's third race, where 7-1 Cam Funny (Austin Siegelman, $17.40), 67-1 Arts B (Eric Carlson), 24-1 Stone of Magic (Larry Stalbaum) and 2-1 Cicely Hanover (Joe Bongiorno) comprised the first quartet. The exacta returned $365, the triple paid $32,178 and the superfecta returned $12,816.

The latter two wagers, based on $2 payouts, were worth $16,089 ($1 ticket) and $640.80 (10-cent ticket), respectively.

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.
