Yonkers, NY --- If you’re a fan of Yonkers Raceway’s Pick-5 wager, good for you. If not, become one -- quickly.

Monday night (Oct. 5), the Raceway’s usual $10,000 guaranteed pool is enhanced with a carryover of $6,537.25 (50-cent base wager, races seven through 11).

While that’s not exactly chopped liver, we again offer a reminder about Saturday’s International Trot matinee card. Try a $75,000 guaranteed Pick-5 pool, complete with $25,000 of seed money.

Some notes about that day:

  • special first post is 2 p.m.
  • $1 million International Trot, with 10 starters at a distance of 1-1/4 miles, is the fourth race (approximate post 3:10 p.m.
  • Pick-5 that day only is comprised of races two through six (again, 50-cent base wager)

Program pages for Monday’s gimmick are available now at, while Saturday’s Pick-5 program pages shall be made available no later than Wednesday evening.
