NYRA to seed Saturday’s Late Pick 5 with additional $100K
by Pat McKenna
The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) today announced it will offer a Late Pick 5 pool seeded with $100,000 on Saturday, at Saratoga Race Course.
The additional money offered in Saturday’s Late Pick 5 pool is to honor NYRA’s commitment to horseplayers following extenuating circumstances on Sunday’s card that saw three races taken off-the-turf late in the day which disrupted a number of multi-race wagers.
Featuring a low 15 percent takeout rate and 50 cent minimum, the Late Pick 5 is open to retail customers only and offered on every live race day at NYRA tracks. The popular multi-race wager, which covers the last five races of the card, features a carryover provision of 100 percent of the net pool into the next day's Late Pick 5 if there are no winning tickets.
The seeded funds do not affect the NYRA Bets $1 million Late Pick 5 bonus, which is available exclusively to NYRA Bets customers on every Saturday and Sunday during the 2023 Saratoga summer meet.
Saturday’s Late Pick 5 will kick off in Race 7 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern with the $150,000 Galway and includes the Grade 2, $200,000 Herb Moelis Memorial Saratoga Special in Race 8 and the Grade 1, $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap, which offers a “Win and You’re In” berth to the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile, in Race 9. First post on Saturday’s 11-race card is 1:10 p.m.
NYRA Bets is the official wagering platform of Saratoga Race Course, and the best way to bet every race of the summer meet. Available to horse players nationwide, the NYRA Bets app is available for download today on iOS and Android at www.NYRABets.com.
