NTRA TO OFFER NATIONWIDE PICK SIX WAGER SATURDAY ON NATIONALLY TELEVISED RACES

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) announced today that it will offer a nationwide Pick Six wager, called the NTRA National Pick 6, on six important Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships prep races being contested this Saturday, October 4, and televised live on CNBC (Bessemer Trust Two-Year-Old Challenge, 3:30-4:30 p.m. ET) and NBC (NTRA Road to the World Thoroughbred Championships, 4:30-6:00 p.m. ET).

The $2 minimum bet will carry a 19% takeout and be hubbed by Keeneland. Fans should simply ask for the “NTRA National Pick 6” when placing their wagers at outlets around the country. The races that comprise the NTRA National Pick 6 appear below:

Race Racetrack TV Post Time (ET)
$400,000 Lane’s End Breeders’ Futurity Keeneland CNBC 3:55 p.m.
$350,000 Kelso Breeders’ Cup Handicap Belmont NBC 4:47 p.m.
$150,000 Oak Tree Derby Oak Tree at Santa Anita NBC 5:12 p.m.
$750,000 Beldame Belmont NBC 5:20 p.m.
$600,000 Shadwell Turf Mile Keeneland NBC 5:32 p.m.
$500,000 Goodwood Breeders’ Cup Handicap Oak Tree at Santa Anita NBC 5:47 p.m.

“This represents another effort by the NTRA to link its television inventory with a wagering product,” said Ken Kirchner, the NTRA’s senior vice president of product development. “Fans have responded enthusiastically to national Pick 3 and Pick 4 wagers tied to previous telecasts, and we think this new National Pick 6 will similarly drive viewers to the Saturday programs airing on CNBC and NBC.”

Daily Racing Form (DRF) will provide extensive support for the NTRA National Pick 6, including full past performance lines in the Saturday, October 4 edition of DRF, which goes on sale Friday.

The NTRA is a broad-based coalition of horseracing interests, including the American Quarter Horse Association, charged with increasing popularity of horseracing and improving economic conditions for industry participants. The NTRA and Breeders’ Cup Limited also administer the Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships, Thoroughbred racing’s year-end Championships consisting of eight races and $14 million in purses and awards and the Breeders’ Cup Stakes Program. The NTRA has offices in Lexington, Ky., and New York City. NTRA press releases appear on the NTRA Web site, www.ntra.com, and at the Web site for the Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships, breederscup.com.
