The Woodbine Entertainment Group has announced that the mandatory payout for its Standardbred Jackpot Hi 5 wager is set for Saturday, May 17, the second-to-last card of the current meet at Woodbine Racetrack.

A mandatory Jackpot Hi 5 payout will also be offered on closing night on the Victoria Day Holiday, Monday, May 19.

Harness racing on the WEG circuit will move to Mohawk Racetrack for 102 dates, beginning Thursday, May 22.

The Jackpot Hi 5, which currently boasts a carryover of $503,972, requires horseplayers to select the first five finishers in exact order on the last race of the program.

The Jackpot proviso means that the entire pool pays out only when there is one winning ticket sold that correctly selects the first five finishers in exact order.

Should the Jackpot Hi 5 continue to carry over to May 17 without a winner, a lucrative mandatory payout amount is expected to generate sizable horseplayer interest in the pool.

The wager, which offers a 20-cent minimum and a low takeout of 15 per cent, debuted October 17.

The Jackpot Hi 5 is popular among core and new racing fans. This past Monday night, $59,503 was wagered into the Jackpot Hi 5 pool.
