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:

“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.
