Yonkers back in action this weekend
« Return to News
After its annual R&R, Yonkers Raceway returns this weekend.
A pair of 10-race cards were drawn for Friday and Saturday evenings (June 7 and 8), with first post the usual 6:50 p.m. Twin $44,000 Open Handicaps, for trotters (Race 6) and pacers (Race 8), highlight the Saturday program
A couple of reminders: There are morning draws for the cards of Monday, June 10 (box closes Tuesday, June 4) and Tuesday, June 11 (box closes Thursday, June 6), before the regular late afternoon draw schedule returns Friday, June 7 (card of Thursday, June 13). The morning box closes promptly at 9 a.m.
When racing resumes, there’s a Pick 5 guarantee going into effect. As part of the U.S. Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program and with the approval of the New York State Gaming Commission, a $10,000 guarantee is available every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evening, the first night being Monday, June 10.
Should the sequence not get hit, the current "instant guarantee" remains leading to the next racing program.
The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising either races 6 through 10 (10-race card) or 7 through 11 (more than 10-race card). It has no consolation payoff, hence the shot at an "instant guarantee.” (Yonkers)
