PICK 4 AND PICK 6 WAGERS REINSTATED
Starting with Friday's card, Hawthorne's popular Pick 4 and Pick 6 wagers will be offered once again. The Illinois Racing Board decided to reinstate the wagers after security measures taken by AmTote and Autotote were put into place.
The Pick 6 will resume its familiar place starting at the third race and encompassing races three through eight. The Pick 4 starts on the fifth race everyday.
In addition the wagering format currently in place, with Superfectas offered in every race except the first and Pick 3s in the first, fourth, and seventh, will continue.
