By Michael Antoniades, Balmoral Park racing analyst

With the help of the USTA Strategic Wagering Initiative, Balmoral Park will offer two guaranteed pools on Sunday. The program has been wildly successful at Balmoral and the two guarantees will certainly perk up the interest on the 10-race holiday card.

The Pick 5 starts on race 2 and has a 50 cent minimum wager. There is a carryover of $3,611 and the USTA and Balmoral have made an instant guarantee of $15,000 for the Pick 5 pool tonight. Post time for race 2 is 8:30 Eastern, 7:30 Central and 5:30 Pacific.

The Pick 4 starts on race 7 and will immediately follow the conclusion of the pick 5.The Sunday pick 4 guaranteed pool is $25,000 with a low takeout of 15 percent. The Pick 4 has a one dollar minimum bet and consists of the final four races. The final leg of the Pick 4 will offer 10 cent High 5 wagering. Post time for race 7 is approximately 10:25 Eastern, 9:25 Central, and 7:25 Pacific.

Information regarding the Strategic Wagering program, including the June schedule, can be found on the USTA’s handicapping page. Expert selections and links to free past performances are available.
