With the introduction of a six-leg multi-track wager at the Meadowlands starting this Saturday, Alex Dadoyan speaks to the possibility of having something closer to Sweden's V75 in North America on today's Trot Radio.

"Anything's possible," stated Dadoyan, the assistant vice president of racing at Meadowlands Racetrack. "This [wager] all came about in discussions with the Hambletonian Society. They've been very interested in trying to promote the game and promote wagering on the game and come up with a new wager that can [create] a big jackpot scenario. I think this is a first step towards something it will be in the future...I'm not sure what it will be in the future but you have to start somewhere."

Two of the races will have "overflow" fields - 12 horses at the Meadowlands, and 10 at Yonkers. A cooperative effort of Yonkers Raceway, the Meadowlands and the Standardbred Owners Association of New York, the Metro 6 Shooter is scheduled to be televised live on the TVG network.

The pool is to be divided with 75 per cent to any ticket(s) with six correct and 25 per cent as consolation to next-most correct. If no one selects all six winners, 25 per cent will be paid out as consolation and 75 per cent is carried over to next Saturday.

At Yonkers Raceway, the purse for the 10-horse field will be increased by 25 percent and the sixth- and seventh-place finishers will receive the equivalent of four percent and three percent of the purse, respectively.
