Sacramento, CA — Watch and Wager LLC kicks off its eighth season of harness racing at Cal Expo with a strong 12-race card Saturday night (Nov. 9).
Beginning next week, the trotters and pacers will be in action on Friday and Saturday evenings with a 6:10 p.m. post time.
The wagering menu includes the return of the low 16 percent takeout Pick-4 and Pick-5 wagers. Last season’s Pick-4 pool averaged more than $46,000 nightly. In addition to the Pick-4, fans will be able to wager on the Pick-5 this season in 20-cent denominations.
The strong on-air broadcast team returns intact. Hall of Fame announcer Gary Siebel will anchor the broadcast, while Jenn Bongiorno and Wendy Ross will do the popular Pick-4 analysis on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Derick Giwner is back with his nightly insightful Pick-5 opinions and Garnet Barnsdale will return each Friday with his expertise on the Woodbine Mohawk circuit for our California simulcast patrons.
On track fans will be treated to a special Family Value night this opening Saturday. Hot dogs, beer, wine and soda are each $2 from 6-9 p.m. As always, parking and admission are free after 4:30 p.m.
