The Pick 5 was not hit on Back to the Track Saturday and that makes Sunday at Balmoral Park a must play. 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 the USTA handicapping section.
The Pick 5 starts on race 2 and has a 50 cent minimum wager. There is a carryover of $6,207 and the USTA and Balmoral have created an instant guarantee of $25,000 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 $30,000 with a low takeout of 15 percent. The Pick 4 has a one dollar minimum bet and starts on race 7. Post time for race 7 is approximately 10:15 Eastern, 9:15 Central, and 7:15 Pacific.
Free program pages are available at the USTA handicapping section.
