NYRA Bets Pick 5 Goes Nationwide

The New York Racing Association announced Wednesday that the NYRA Bets Late Pick 5 will become available to horseplayers nationwide beginning July 3. It will continue to be available through the end of 2019 season.

NYRA Bets previously offered the wager with a low takeout of 15% and a 50-cent minimum, exclusively to NYRA Bets customers, New York on-track bettors, and those betting at a New York simulcasting facility.

The exclusive NYRA Bets Late Pick 5 will conclude Sunday, June 30, with a mandatory payout. NYRA used the bet to grow its brand and now looks to expand the market while offering horseplayers a good wager with a low takeout.

“We are pleased to respond to the popular demand of horseplayers and open the Late Pick 5 to horse racing fans across the country,” said Tony Allevato, President of NYRA Bets and Executive Producer for NYRA TV.

“An exciting summer of racing will be that much more interesting with the Late Pick 5 on the wagering menu every day at Belmont and Saratoga.”

The popular multi-race wager should provide a boost to NYRA’s handle figures at Saratoga Race Course, which opens on July 11. For additional information, visit
