The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has announced that it will offer a $300,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4 Saturdays at Belmont Park during the 2010 Fall Championship Meet. The first Guaranteed Late Pick 4 of the meet will be offered on Saturday, September 11.
Although NYRA offers daily Pick 4’s on races 2-5 and the final four races of the day, the $300,000 guarantee applies only to the Late Pick 4 on Saturdays. The Late Pick 4 is a $1 minimum wager in which the bettor must correctly pick the winners of the last four races on the card, usually beginning with race 7 on Belmont Saturdays.
By guaranteeing the wager for $300,000, NYRA will supplement the difference if the total wagering pool for the Saturday Late Pick 4 is less than $300,000.
On Jockey Club Gold Cup Day, Saturday, October 2, NYRA will offer a $500,000 Guaranteed Pick 4. Included on the day’s card are the following five Grade 1 races: The Jockey Club Gold Cup, the Beldame, the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic, the Flower Bowl, and the Vosburgh.
