Pick Six Wager Launches With $30,000 Pool On June 5
Horseplayers will have a lot of free cash to aim at with the introduction of a new harness wager.
On Saturday, June 5, Meadowlands Racetrack and Yonkers Raceway will launch the Metro 6 Shooter, a pick six wager with $30,000 added to the net pool.
"This is a truly great opportunity for all bettors," said Alex Dadoyan, assistant vice president of racing at Meadowlands Racetrack. "There is a significant amount of free money out there for the taking, as we essentially start the wager with a $30,000 carryover. It's great to see Yonkers Raceway and their horsemen dedicate money towards the bettors to help build up this exciting new harness wager."
Past performances for the Metro 6 Shooter will be available in live racing programs and online at MeadowlandsRacetrack.com (http://www.meadowlandsracetrack.com). In addition, TrackMaster will supply free Platinum Past Performances and selections for the Metro 6 Shooter races each week. These will be available on the TrackMaster (http://www.trackmaster.com) and Meadowlands web sites.
The Metro 6 Shooter will be held under New Jersey Racing Commission Rules, with a 20 percent takeout rate. A consolation payout will be in effect every Saturday, whether there are any correct 6 of 6 winning tickets or not. The Meadowlands Pick Six will no longer be offered on Saturday nights beginning June 5, but will continue on all other racing days.
