SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) will offer a $500,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4 on Saturdays at Saratoga Race Course.
The Late Pick 4 requires bettors to select the winners of the final four races on the card. By guaranteeing the wager, NYRA will supplement the net difference if the total pool is less than $500,000.
On Saturday, August 25, the guarantee will rise to $1 million in conjunction with the 143rd running of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers Stakes. The Travers undercard will also include the Grade 1, $500,000 Foxwoods King’s Bishop, Grade 1, $500,000 Test, and Grade 2, $250,000 Ballston Spa presented by Jose Cuervo.
The 2012 Saratoga meet will run for 40 days, beginning Friday, July 20 and ending on Labor Day, September 3.
