The Balmoral Pick 5 was not hit on Saturday and that sets the stage for a big Sunday night of action with two guaranteed $30,000 multi-race pools. With the help of the USTA Strategic Wagering Initiative, Balmoral Park will offer guaranteed pools on the Pick 4 and Pick 5 Sunday, Dec. 2. Free twelve-line program pages are now available courtesy of Track Master at www.ustrotting.com.
The Pick 5 starts on race 2. The 50 cent minimum allows players twice the amount of combinations for more coverage. The USTA and Balmoral have created an instant guarantee of $30,000 for the Pick Five pool. Post time for race two is 8:30 Eastern, 7:30 Central and 5:30 Pacific.
The Balmoral Pick Four will immediately follow the conclusion of the Pick Five. The Sunday Pick 4 guaranteed pool is $30,000 with a low takeout of 15 percent. The Pick Four has a one-dollar minimum bet and consists of the final four races. Race 11 will offer 10-cent High 5 wagering.
Free program pages are available at the USTA handicapping section.
