Yonkers' Thursday Pick-5 features $25,000 guaranteed pool

Yonkers' Thursday Pick-5 features $25,000 guaranteed pool
Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - by Frank Drucker, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

Yonkers, NY ---We reiterate the phrase no handicapper ever tires of hearing..."Free Money Here."

Due in large part to a 45-1 sequence-buster, Yonkers Raceway's Tuesday night Pick-5 wager-and its $10,000 guaranteed pool--was not hit.

So, Thursday's Third of July wager now features a $25,000 guaranteed pot, with a $7,500 sweetener.

The Pick55 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.

This past Monday's gimmick-with a $25,000 dowry and nearly $9,400 from a double carryoverattracted more than $31,000 of new money, so Thursdays final pool figures to be quite significant.

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.
