The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) will offer three different guaranteed wagers during the 2011 Saratoga Meet: a $500,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4, presented by Foxwoods Resort Casino on Saturdays, a $100,000 Guaranteed Pick 6 on Thursdays, and a $1 Million All-Graded Stakes Late Pick 4 on Travers Day, Saturday, August 27.
The $100,000 Guaranteed Thursday Pick 6 will be offered for the second time in 2011. This is a $2 minimum wager in which the bettor must correctly select the winners of six consecutive races. By guaranteeing the wager, NYRA will supplement the net difference if the total pool is less than $100,000.
This will be the third consecutive year that NYRA has offered a $500,000 guarantee on the Saturday Late Pick 4, which will be presented by Foxwoods Resort Casino. The 50 cent minimum wager requires the bettor to correctly pick the winners of four consecutive races. By guaranteeing the wager, NYRA will supplement the net difference if the total pool is less than $500,000.
In lieu of the regular Pick 4 guarantee, on Travers Day, Saturday, August 27, NYRA will offer a $1 Million Guaranteed All-Graded Stakes Late Pick 4 featuring the Grade 1 Travers and the Grade 1 Foxwoods King’s Bishop.
