Yonkers to offer all stakes $20,000 guaranteed Pick-5 pool Saturday

Yonkers, NY --- If more than $1.5 million in stakes money up for grabs Saturday night isn't enough incentive to watch and wager, Yonkers Raceway has added a bit more.

There is a $20,000 guaranteed Pick-5 pool, comprised of all the featured events, as in the $500,000 Yonkers Trot, $500,000 Messenger Stakes, $250,000 International Trot Preview, $150,854 Lady Maud and $124,590 Hudson Filly Trot.

Please be advised that the order of the races is TBA as of this writing (open draw for all is Tuesday afternoon), and the Pick-5 (for this night only) may be moved from its customary slot of races five through nine. It does remain a 50 cent base wager with no consolation payoff. Program pages shall be available for perusal no later than Wednesday afternoon at www.yonkersraceway.com.

"Saturday is going to be the best race card anywhere. We're very proud Yonkers Raceway is hosting these classic events, and we invite everyone to see these world-class pacers and trotters," Raceway COO Bob Galterio said.

As always, the guaranteed pool is a joint venture of the Raceway, the Standardbred Owners Association of New York and the U.S. Trotting Associations Strategic Wagering Program.

Yonkers Raceway's five night per week live schedule continues, with first post every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:10 p.m. Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
