The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono will offer a 15 percent across-the-board takeout rate on all available wagers--not only on the entire Breeders Crown finals card, but also on two nights of elimination cards.
"It's a significant benefit to offer bettors one of the absolute lowest multi-race takeout rates in all of North America," said John Campbell, president and CEO of the Hambletonian Society, which owns and administers the Breeders Crown championship series of races. "Adding this incentive to one of racing's most highly anticipated events will make it all the more exciting."
The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono and Pennsylvania Harness Horsemen's Association have also partnered with TVG to broadcast key Breeders Crown races, and with Daily Racing Form for live streaming on their website with analysis, past performance pages and commentary, giving fans access free of charge.
Set for Saturday, Oct. 27, this will be the third time The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono has hosted the $6 million event, harness racing's richest and most prestigious year-end divisional series. Breeders Crown eliminations for 2 year olds will be raced Friday, Oct. 19, and 3-year-old and open horses will have eliminations, if necessary, on Saturday, Oct. 20.
