The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) and Penn National Gaming, Inc. are launching a special reduced takeout Thursday Pick 4 that will link the final two races at Belmont Park with the first two races at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course.
The Belmont - Penn National Thursday Pick 4 will commence Thursday, September 12 and will run every subsequent Thursday through October 24, the final week of the Belmont fall meet. The 50-cent minimum wager will be offered at a reduced 15 percent takeout.
"We are very excited to partner with NYRA and offer racing customers this new and unique bet," said Dan Silver, director of racing operations at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course. "Combining races from Belmont Park and Penn National in this reduced takeout wager should create a fun and appealing midweek wagering opportunity."
The wager will begin with Belmont's next-to-last race (usually race 8 or 9), and conclude with Penn National's 2nd race at approximately 6:27 p.m.
It will appear on tote machines and ADWs as a separate track code titled the "BELMONTPENNPICK4." Customers will need to ask or look for this name in order to wager on the special Pick 4.
