Officials with Yonkers Raceway have announced that there will be a $75,000 guaranteed Pick 5 pool during the track’s $1 million International Trot card, which is a special matinee program that will kick off at 2 p.m. this Saturday (October 10).

Yonkers Raceway is offering the guaranteed pool in conjunction with the Standardbred Owners Association of New York and the US Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering initiative.

The wager includes $25,000 of ‘seed money’ and encompasses Race 2 through Race 6 on the card. The 10-horse International Trot has been scheduled as Race 4 (approximate post 3:10 p.m.). Yonkers’ Pick 5 – a 50-cent base wager – usually takes place from Race 7 through Race 11.

“We are all very excited to see the International come back,” Yonkers Raceway President Tim Rooney said. “We’ve put together an excellent field and we invite all our fans to enjoy it and test their handicapping skills.”

Additionally, a superfecta has also been added to the International Trot wagering menu.

Some other notes regarding the Pick 5 guarantee appear below.

• Though additional monies may be carried over should the gimmick not be hit before Saturday, the total guaranteed pool remains at $75,000;

• As always, the Pick 5 is not a ‘must-pay’ wager, so if no one selects all five winners in the sequence, the entire pool (minus takeout) would move to the Monday, October 12, program;
