The Metro 6 Shooter has been canceled by Yonkers and The Meadowlands until further notice.
Edited Release from Harnessracing.com:
The Metro 6 Shooter, a joint Pick 6 wager offered Saturday nights on races at the Meadowlands and Yonkers Raceway, has been cancelled.
Seeded weekly with $30,000 from the Standardbred Owners Association of New York and Yonkers Raceway, the bet began June 5 but lasted just five weeks, as it could not gain momentum of a carryover as there was at least one winning ticket every Saturday.
The first Metro 6 pool on June 5 reached $64,477 (including the $30,000 seed money), with one winning six-for-six ticket returning $43,181, in addition to the weekly five-of-six consolation tickets that were guaranteed. On June 12, the pool increased to a high of $77,243, with again just one winning ticket worth $50,897.
But since the second week the pool has diminished gradually. On June 19, the pool was $74,641, with 48 winning tickets returning $1,027 each. On June 26 the pool was $70,461, with 16 winning tickets that paid $2,937 each. On July 3, the pool dropped to $63,222, and despite two of the six winners paying at odds higher than 10-1, and another 6-1 shot, there was still one winning ticket that paid $45,625.
Offered every Saturday, the Metro 6 Shooter will feature races from both the Meadowlands and Yonkers as part of the sequence. It begins with the fourth race from the Meadowlands and will be offered as a $1 minimum wager. If nobody selects six winners, 25 percent of the net pool is paid out to tickets with the most winners selected correctly and 75 percent of the net pool will be carried over to the following Saturday.
A consolation payout will be in effect every Saturday, whether there are any correct 6 of 6 winning tickets or not. The Meadowlands Pick Six will no longer be offered on Saturday nights beginning June 5, but will continue on all other racing days.
**The Metro 6 Shooter starts in the 4th Race at Meadowlands Harness.
