Yonkers, NY --- Since no one took down Yonkers Raceway’s Tuesday night Pick-5 -- complete with its $10,000 guarantee -- the entire pool (minus takeout) of $7,500 gets rolled over. That carryover triggers a $25,000 guaranteed pool into Thursday night’s (Jan. 16) program.

The Pick-5 is a 50-cent base wager offered on races five through nine nightly. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Tuesday), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.

The last time a 25-large incentive was in play (albeit with a double carryover of just over $16,000) was in mid-November and more than $62,000 of fresh money was wagered.

The Pick-5 offers a $10,000 guaranteed pool every Monday and Tuesday (in conjunction with the United States Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program), with program pages for those “guaranteed” days available for perusal at
