Yonkers, NY — A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Saturday evening’s (Oct. 20) Pick-5 wager starts with a carryover of $2,773.79 and a $10,000 guaranteed pool. The guarantee is in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program.
The Pick-5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races six through 10 Saturday night. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Friday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
