YONKERS' MONDAY PICK 5 A WELL-RECEIVED WAGER


YONKERS' MONDAY PICK 5 A WELL-RECEIVED WAGER
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Monday, April 13, 2015-If you carry over, they shall invest.

Jump-started by "leftovers" in excess of $4,300 ($4,361.40, to be precise) and Monday night's usual $10,000 guaranteed pool, Yonkers Raceway's Pick 5 found an audience.

A total of $20,640 fresh coin was bet into the gimmick, creating a total pool (after takeout) of $19,841 and some change. The winning combination of 1/8/5/4/1 returned $1,803.75 for every correct half-a-buck wager.

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager offered each racing program (races 7 through 11). It has no consolation payoff, so if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Saturday), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next program ($10,000 guaranteed pool every Monday).

The Raceway's live season continues Tuesday (first post 1 PM, second round of YR/SOA of NY Bonus Trotting Series), then Thursday through Saturday (all at 7:10 PM, with fifth rounds of Matchmaker and Levy Series Friday and Saturday). Evening simulcasting accompanies all nighttime programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
