Crete, IL --- Balmoral Park will offer a guaranteed Pick-5 pool of $35,000 on Wednesday (Aug. 20).

Because the 50 cent minimum wager was not hit on Sunday (Aug. 17), a carryover of $5,212 will be added to Wednesday’s pool. The popular low cost Pick-5 wager will be offered on races one through five this Wednesday.

In addition to the Pick-5 guarantee, fans will have a chance to walk away with a big payday later in the night as Balmoral will also offer a $10,000 guaranteed pool on their $1 Pick-4 wager. The Pick-4, which is on races six-nine on Wednesday night, features a low takeout of just 15 percent.

The chances for another big score will continue on Thursday (Aug. 21) at Maywood Park as the half-mile oval offers a $25,000 guaranteed pool on the $1 Pick-4 that night. The wager went unclaimed last Friday (Aug. 15) so a carryover of $10,577 will be added to the pool on Thursday night. The Pick-4 is on races eight-11 on Thursday nights at Maywood Park.

Handicappers across North America can get a head start on their competition with free 12 line program pages for the guaranteed pools courtesy of the USTA Strategic Wagering Program and TrackMaster on the handicapping section at

Post time for Wednesday’s opener at Balmoral is 7:10 p.m. (CDT). Maywood also has a first post of 7:10 p.m. on Thursday.
