Balmoral Park

Balmoral Park (12/8/12)

Contact: Tom Kelley
(708) 672-1414


Here we go again! Get ready for another giant betting opportunity on Sunday, Dec. 9 at Balmoral Park. Players will get a $100,000 guaranteed pool, a big carryover, free program pages courtesy of Track Master and a low 15 percent takeout. What more could a player ask for?

If you are a part of the growing Balmoral Nation, you are certainly aware that the third six-digit pool of the year could provide plenty of Holiday cheer. A carryover of $30,522 on the 50 cent Pick 5 wager has prompted Balmoral management along with the Strategic Wagering Initiative to offer up a $100,000 guarantee on the Pick 5. The Pick 5 consists of races 2-6 and post time for race two on Sunday night is scheduled for 7:30 pm (Central).

The final pool on Balmoral’s last six-figure guarantee back on February 22 not only surpassed $170,000 but three winners in New York, Oregon and Ohio each won a record $44,675.10 for fifty cents.

The $1 Pick Four is offered on races seven through 10 on Sunday night at Balmoral as well. The Sunday Pick Four starts on race 7. The minimum bet is a dollar and the takeout is just 15 percent. The average payout this year is $2,366 for a buck. Free program pages are available at

Balmoral Park and the USTA offer guaranteed pools every night. A $30,000 guarantee is offered on Sunday’s Pick Four.

Free program pages are available at the USTA handicapping section.
