Balmoral will offer an action-packed card with two guaranteed pools this Sunday with a bonus.

Post time for the first race is 7:10 Eastern, 6:10 Central and 4:10 Pacific.
There will be almost no rest for the players after the first race because the Pick Five also has a carryover. The fifty cent wager has a one day carryover of $6,286. Balmoral and the USTA will offer an instant guarantee of $30,000 on the Sunday Pick Five.
The Sunday program will also have a Pick Four with a guaranteed pool of $30,000 and starts on race 7. The Pick Four has a low takeout of 15 percent with a minimum wager of one dollar. The average payout is over $2,400 for a buck. Free program pages are now available at www.ustrotting.com courtesy of Track Master.
