A brilliant fireworks display will light up the sky after the races at Balmoral Park tonight. The Pick 5 was not hit on Saturday and that has set the stage for the multi race gambling fireworks that will kick off starting with race two on the eleven-race holiday card. With the help of the USTA Strategic Wagering Initiative, Balmoral Park will offer two guaranteed pools on the Pick 4 and Pick 5 tonight. Free twelve-line program pages are now available courtesy of Track Master at www.ustrotting.com.
The Pick 5 starts on race 2 and has a 50-cent minimum wager. There is a carryover of $6,013 and the USTA and Balmoral have created an instant guarantee of $30,000 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 rollover Pick 5. The Sunday Pick 4 guaranteed pool is $30,000 with a low takeout of 15 percent. The Pick 4 has a one dollar minimum bet. Post time for race 7 is approximately 10:10 eastern, 9:10 central, and 7:10 pacific.
The final race of the night will offer 10-cent High 5 wagering.
