Washington, PA — The Meadows Racetrack & Casino has increased — to $10,000 — the total-pool guarantee for its Thursday (Oct. 11) Pick-4 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program.
While $7,500 Pick-4 guarantees are offered each card, The Meadows sweetened the pot when Wednesday’s Pick-4 was uncovered, resulting in a carryover of $3,306.51.
In addition, Thursday’s card includes a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick-5 as well as the Super Hi-5; each is a regular feature of each program at The Meadows.
Minimum wager for the Pick-4 (races four-seven), Pick-5 (races nine-13) and Super Hi-5 (race 13) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.
First post for the special Thursday card is 1:05 p.m.
