The Metro 6 Shooter, the pick six wager teaming races from Yonkers Raceway and the Meadowlands on Saturday nights, is gaining popularity and momentum among horseplayers. In its first two weeks, the $1 wager has returned $43,000 and $50,000, each to one lucky winner in the first two weeks. The wager rolls into week three this Saturday.
Last week, a Saturday night dominated by long shots yielded a $50,847 payday for the one lucky bettor who took down the entire Metro 6 Shooter pool. Comprised of four races at the Meadowlands (four through seven) and two at Yonkers (five and seven), the winning 6-of-6 sequence was (9-5-5-6-2-4).
There were 24 tickets with 5-of-6 correct, which returned $706.20. The Metro 6 Shooter began with $30,000 added to the net pool, while another $47,247 was wagered into the pool.
The Metro 6 Shooter returns next Saturday with another $30,000 being added to the net pool before wagering. (Yonkers Raceway)
