Balmoral Park

Balmoral Park (8/10/07)

Contact: Tom Kelley

REDUCED TAKEOUT AND CARRYOVER SHOULD LEAD TO A BIG PICK 5 POOL ON SATURDAY AT BALMORAL

The Pick 5 wager at Balmoral Park with its low 15% takeout is once again proving to be very popular for the Balmoral Park players both in state and out of state.

Coming up this Saturday, August 11 the pool figures to be even better with a $4,724 carryover being added to the usual big Saturday pool. With the carryover Balmoral Park is estimating the Pick 5 pool to be in excess of $20,000 for the highly competitive Saturday card.

The Pick 5 is contested each night on races three thru seven. Post time for the third race on Saturday is expected to be right around 8:00 p.m. (Central Time).

Here is a list of some recent payouts thanks in part to the 15% takeout as compared to the old 25% takeout.

Old Payout New Payout Added $$ in your pocket
$250 $283 $33
$500 $566 $66
$1,000 $1,133 $133
$2,500 $2,833 $333
