Tioga Downs is proud to announce that it has partnered with the Southern Tier Harness Horsemen’s Association (STHHA) and Peter Kleinhans to offer its bettors a $6,000 Guaranteed Pick 6 on Sunday afternoons being tagged “Pick 6 Sundays” at Tioga Downs.
Beginning Sunday, June 20, Tioga Downs will offer a Pick Six that begins on race four and runs through race nine with a takeout rate of 21 percent, which is the lowest allowed in New York State. If the Pick Six is not hit, there will be a 25 percent consolation payout, with 75 percent being carried over to the next Sunday of live racing.
“Bettors want their money guaranteed when they are going to put a ticket together for a pick six, and we are thankful that the STHHA and Peter Kleinhans are working with us to put this together,” said Jason Settlemoir, vice president of racing and simulcast.
“We are hoping to get some more exposure out of the bet, we have already lowered our takeout rates to the state minimum, and by adding this maybe some of the Thoroughbred players on Sunday afternoon will pick up a program and throw a few bucks at it. We are not afraid to give anything a try at Tioga, and we have the full support of our horsemen’s organization who are also willing to step out on a limb with us” said Settlemoir.
