YONKERS' MONDAY PICK 5 GETS SOME ATTENTION



YONKERS' MONDAY PICK 5 GETS SOME ATTENTION
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Monday, April 6, 2015-Buoyed by a carryover in excess of $4,500 ($4,529.90, to be precise) and Monday night's usual $10,000 guaranteed pool, Yonkers Raceway's Pick 5 had more interest than usual.

Nearly $16,000 of fresh money ($15,995.04, to be precise) was bet into the gimmick, creating a total pool (after takeout) of $16,536.15. The winning combination of 2/5/1/3/5 returned $972 for every correct half-a-buck wager.

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager offered each racing program (races 7 through 11). It has no consolation payoff, so if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Saturday), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next program ($10,000 guaranteed pool every Monday).

The Raceway's live season continues with a French-centric Tuesday (first post 1 PM), then Thursday through Saturday (all at 7:10 PM, with fourth rounds of Matchmaker and Levy series Friday and Saturday). Evening simulcasting accompanies all nighttime programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily.
