WAGERING FORMAT FOR SEPTEMBER HARNESS MEET

Thursday, August 31, 2017

 Live harness racing returns to Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment for an abbreviated September meeting. The four-day meet begins Friday, September 8 and Saturday, September 9 and comes back the following Friday and Saturday. Post time for all four nights will be 7:15 p.m.

 

Horseplayers should take note that there will be a few notable changes to the wagering format.

 

The pair of Pick Four wagers and the Pick Five will still carry their same low 15 percent takeout rate and occupy their same places on the race card. However, they will not offer their regular guaranteed pool size.

 

In addition, the 20-cent Jackpot Super High Five will only be offered on the final race of the evening. As usual, if there is no single winning ticket, 25 percent of the net pool will be carried over while 75 percent of the net pool will be paid out to the multiple winning tickets. Should there be no single winning ticket on the final day of the abbreviated meet, the jackpot will be carried to November 4, which is the first day of the Fall/Winter Meet.

 

Exactas and trifectas will continue to be offered on all races. 10-cent superfectas will be offered on all races with the exception of those that begin the Pick Four wagers and the Pick Five.
