Meadowlands Racetrack will head into the
heart of its stakes season with higher pool guarantees and several new wagers
designed to stimulate more betting action.
Starting July 7, the Saturday Pick 4 will
feature a $100,000 pool guarantee. The Thursday and Friday pools are secured at
the 2012 racing season, the Meadowlands Pick 4 pool has averaged $76,749. The average payoff this year is $2,990, up
nearly 50 percent from the 2011 average payoff of $2,099. A $1 wager, the Pick 4 spans races six
On nights when the pool
guarantees are not met, the effective takeout on the Pick 4 and other
guaranteed wagers becomes even lower due to the added money, creating a great
value for bettors.
The Friday Pick 6 pool will be guaranteed
at $10,000 (for six-of-six) starting July 6. A $20,000 guaranteed Pick 5 pool
also remains in effect each night. The Pick 5, offered on the first five races,
will also feature a lower 15 percent takeout starting Saturday.
A Super High Five wager, which will feature
a $20,000 guaranteed pool, will make its debut Saturday, July 7. A 10-cent bet,
the Super High Five requires horseplayers to correctly select the top five
finishers in a race. The wager will be offered on the last race of the night.
An additional Pick 3 wager, placed in race
seven, will also join the nightly wagering line-up.
