Balmoral Park, with the help of the USTA Strategic Wagering Initiative, will offer two guaranteed pools on the Pick 4 and Pick 5 Saturday, December 8. Free twelve-line program pages are now available courtesy of Track Master at www.ustrotting.com.

The Pick 5 starts on race 2. There is a carryover of $4,241.39. The 50 cent minimum allows players twice the amount of combinations for more coverage. The USTA and Balmoral have created an instant guarantee of $20,000 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 consist of the final four races starting with race 10.
