$15,000 seeded Pick-5 this week at Yonkers Raceway

Yonkers, NY — MGM Yonkers Raceway will offer handicappers a unique opportunity during the remainder of the racing week with a special Pick-5 seeded with $15,000 on each card.

Beginning on Tuesday night the Pick-5 will start with $15,000 in the pool. Should the wager be hit, a new $15,000 will be available on Wednesday evening, and so on. Should the Pick-5 go unsolved on one of the cards, 50 percent of the pool will carryover to the following card and the other 50 percent will move on to Saturday when a mandatory payout Pick-5 will be in effect.

For clarity, if $10,000 is wagered on Tuesday and no one hits the bet, there will be a $15,000 carryover for Wednesday and $11,500 will be waiting in the Pick-5 pool for Saturday’s MGM Yonkers International Trot Day card. If $25,000 is wagered on Tuesday without a winner, $17,500 will be carried over to both Wednesday and Saturday.

A non-Jackpot wager offering a 20 percent takeout, the “Lucky” Pick-5 will be offered on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights (7 p.m. post) as well as Saturday afternoon (12:15 p.m.). The base wager amount for the bet is $5.

The Pick-5 is always available on races five through nine during every card and will revert to the normal 50-cent base wager on Sept. 11.
