Milton, ON — Horseplayers will look to cap off Saturday night (Feb. 15) with a big score by taking home a piece of Woodbine Mohawk Park’s Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout.
A carryover of C$152,060.29 will be brought into the Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout and past results show that the total pool is expected to be large.
The most recent Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout took place less than two months ago on Dec. 21. On that occasion, a total of C$544,793.76 in new money was wagered to go with a carryover of C$180,992.59.
The new money total has tripled that of the carryover in three of the past five mandatory payouts, including a record C$2.8 million in new money wagered on the March 30, 2019 mandatory payout that had a carryover of C$525,140.
The Jackpot Hi-5 race is race 11 on Saturday’s card at Woodbine Mohawk Park. As usual, the mandatory payout race will have an overflow field of 11 going for a purse of C$25,000.
The horses competing in Saturday’s Hi-5 race are non-winners of C$8,600 last five starts or C$17,200 last 10 pacers. This level would typically compete for a purse of C$17,000, but with an extra horse added to the Hi-5 race, the purse has been bumped and all starters will receive money.

Saturday’s card will also feature a C$36,000 Preferred Pace (race nine). Mares Kendall Seelster and So Much More are two of the seven competitors in the top-level event. Easy Lover Hanover headlines the male competitors.
Kendall Seelster comes into Saturday’s contest just C$11,154 away from reaching C$1 million in career earnings. The 5-year-old Rod Boyd trainee would need a victory to accomplish the milestone this weekend.
Post time for Saturday’s card is 7:10 p.m.
