EXCITING PLACE PICK 9 WAGER COMING TO SPORTSMANíS PARK

Thereíll be an exciting new wagering challenge for handicappers nationwide when the National Jockey Club opens the 2002 Chicago thoroughbred racing season at Sportsmanís Park for a 46-day run starting Friday, March 1.

The Place Pick 9 is coming to Sportsmanís Park! The $1.00 minimum wager will be held every live racing day (Friday through Tuesday) on the 1st through 9th races. This intriguing betting proposition adds a fun new dimension to handicapping that can lead to big carryovers and big payoffs.

Place Pick 9 bettors are required to select the 1st OR 2nd place finishers in nine straight races based on the official order of finish. Seventy-five percent (75%) of the net Place Pick 9 pool and the carryover, if any, will be distributed to those who are successful.

Twenty-five percent (25%) of the daily net Place Pick 9 pool shall be distributed to those who select the 1st or 2nd place finisher in the second greatest number of Place Pick 9 races, based upon the official order of finish.

In the event there are no wagers selecting the 1st or 2nd place finisher in each of the Place Pick 9 races, twenty-five percent (25%) of the daily net Place Pick 9 pool shall be distributed as a single price pool to those who select the 1st or 2nd place finisher in the greatest number of Place Pick 9 races and seventy-five percent (75%) shall be added to the carryover.

Should a betting interest in any of the Place Pick 9 races be scratched, the actual favorite, as evidenced by total amounts wagered in the Win pool at the close of wagering for that race, shall be substituted for the scratched betting interest for all purposes, including pool calculations.

Sportsmanís Park, celebrating 70 years of Thoroughbred racing (1932-2002), is proud home of $600,000 Illinois Champions Day and the $500,000 Illinois Derby, part of the ĎMillion Dollar Tripleí of graded stakes, also including the $300,000 Sixty Sails Handicap and the $200,000 National Jockey Club Handicap.
