The Empire 6, featuring a $0.20 bet minimum and 20 percent takeout, requires the bettor to select the first-place finisher of the final six races of the card.
If one unique ticket exists, then 100% of the net pool, plus the jackpot carryover if applicable, will be paid to the winner. If there is no unique wager selecting the first-place finisher in all six races, then 75% of the day’s net pool will be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of races. The remainder, will be added into the jackpot and carried to the next day’s Empire 6.
There will be a mandatory payout of the Empire 6 on Monday, September 7.
