In the first six weeks of the 2013 Meadowlands racing season, the bettors have spoken loud and clear. The 50-cent Pick 5 and the brand new early Pick 4 are in high demand and the Meadowlands Racetrack is responding to that demand.

Effective Thursday February 14, the Meadowlands Racetrack will be raising a pair of its guaranteed wagers. The 50-cent Pick 5, which has seen an average pool of $45,000 will increase its guaranteed pool from $15,000 to $25,000. In addition, the early Pick 4, which has sported an average pool of roughly $50,000 will increase its guarantee from $25,000 to $35,000. These new guarantees will support the always popular late Pick 4, with guarantees of $50,000 on Thursday and Friday and $75,000 on Saturday. All three of these wagers will retain their 15 per cent takeout rate.

Beginning this upcoming Thursday February 14, the Meadowlands Racetrack guaranteed wagers will be as follows:

  • $.50-cent Pick 5 (Races 1-5): $25,000 Guaranteed (15 per cent takeout)
  • $1 Early Pick 4 (Races 3-6): $35,000 Guaranteed (15 per cent takeout)
  • $1 Late Pick 4 (Races 7-10): $50,000 Guaranteed Thursday and Friday (15 per cent takeout), $75,000 Guaranteed Saturday (15 per cent takeout)

This announcement comes on the heels of a Thursday evening that featured a $51,000 Pick 5, a $68,000 early Pick 4 and a $104,000 late Pick 4 pool.
