Yonkers, NY — Yonkers Raceway’ Pick-5 guarantee went into effect Monday night (June 10). As part of the U.S. Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program and with the approval of the New York State Gaming Commission, a minimum $10,000 pot is available every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evening.
The pool total — $13,685 — easily eclipsed that number, despite the races contested with limited visibility due to persistent wind, rain and fog. The phrase that pays was 5/4/6/7/8, returning $446.25 for every correct 50-cent wager.
The Pick-5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising either races six through 10 (10-race card) or seven through 11 (more than 10-race card). It has no consolation payoff.
Monday also saw a season-high superfecta in the overflow-field eighth race, with a combination of 4/5/10/7 paying $62,450 (base $2 payout, 10-cent ticket worth $3,122.50).
