Meadowlands To Host 40-Minute Pick-4

Published: April 21, 2015 06:51 pm EDT

The Meadowlands Racetrack will begin its live racing program on Saturday, May 2 with a special first-race post time of 5:30 p.m.

In addition to the 12 live races contested at The Meadowlands on May 2nd, The Meadowlands will simulcast two races from Tioga Downs that will be offered as part of The Meadowlands live card through separate pool wagering, producing a 14-race program. The two races simulcast from Tioga will be races two (2) and four (4) on The Meadowlands program.

The block of the first four races at The Meadowlands (two live and two from Tioga) will comprise a pick four with a low 15-percent takeout rate and a 50-cent minimum wager. Each race in the sequence will be run just 10 minutes apart, adding to the excitement of the wager which has been named the “Forty Minute Pick Four.”

The first four races on The Meadowlands program will take place from 5:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Then, there will be a break in the live racing program for the running of the Kentucky Derby. Live racing will resume at 6:55 p.m. with the running of the fifth (5th) race, which will begin the $.50 cent Pick 5. The $.50 cent Early Pick 4 will begin in the seventh (7th) race at approximately 7:43 p.m. and the $.50 Cent Late Pick 4 will begin in the 11th race, approximately 9:12 p.m.

The two Jackpot Super Hi-5 wagers will be offered on the 10th and last race on the program (anticipated to be race 14).

The Meadowlands will open its doors at 9:30 a.m. on Kentucky Derby Day. In addition to the live racing which begins at 5:30 p.m., The Meadowlands will also broadcast the Floyd Mayweather – Manny Pacquiao boxing match, with the undercard beginning at 9:00 p.m.

I might not agree with everything that comes from the desk of Mr. Gural; however, you have to agree he does try. I like this one especially as it plays to the generations of today that demand instant gratification. This is definitely something that could be done in Ontario for sure in the summer months. Well done!!

Keep your eyes on the road and your hands apon the wheel, team Gural has put their heads together to host a 40 minute pick-4 then continue the program with a variety of excitement at a variety of places. I'm looking forward to see how it all works and I wish good luck to Jeff and his team of producers.

Once again, the fans are being looked after, and it didnt take the government to make the change. This guy listens to everyone, the fans, the bettors, the horseman.

Pay attention Ontario. It all started with a horseman.

This guy is great and does it without slots.

mr gural, once again, a tip of the hat from are absolutely fearless.
