Maywood Park

Maywood Park (4/20/11)

Contact: Tom Kelley
(708) 672-1414


By Michael Antoniades, Racing Analyst

Maywood Park, with the support of the USTA Strategic Wagering initiative, will offer their first $10,000 guaranteed Pick 4 pool on Thursday, April 21. With the help of a $5,143 carryover, the guarantee will be surpassed with ease. We are estimating a final Pick 4 pool of $20,000.

The Maywood Pick 4 is contested on the final four races on the card. The wager will consist of races 8 thru 11 on Thursday night. The Pick 4 has a $1 minimum bet and as always is offered with a low 15 percent takeout.

On race 11 which is the final leg of the Pick 4, the High 5 offers the second carryover of the evening. The object of the High 5 is to select the top five finishers in that race. The wager is offered with a 10-cent minimum and the Thursday carryover is $4,767. The estimated final pool will also be $20,000.

Balmoral Park also offers guaranteed Pick 4 pools each weekend. With the temporary absence of The Meadowlands and the help of the USTA, the Balmoral Park guaranteed pools are the highest Pick 4 pools in the United States. Since the USTA initiative began on April 2, the Balmoral Pick 4 pools are averaging $36,617.

We hope you will get in on the carryover action Thursday. If you would like to get an early start handicapping the races, the USTA and Track Master are here to help. Free program pages for the Thursday Maywood Pick 4 and all future guaranteed pool information are now available on the USTA handicapping page at

The “USTA Strategic Wagering” program is designed to provide value to horseplayers by guaranteeing the size of designated betting pools. In support of the USTA Strategic Wagering, TrackMaster is giving away free past performance program pages and expert selection products.
