MEADOWLANDS RETURNS FRIDAY, OFFERS 125K GUARANTEE ON PICK FIVE

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

 Last week’s sub-zero wind chills forced the cancellation of racing at the Meadowlands, but with forecasts calling for temperatures in the 50s, the Big M returns this Friday night offering some opportunities to hit big on the 14-race card.

That’s when bettors will have a guaranteed pool of $125,000 to shoot for in the track’s Pick 5 wager, which gets underway in Race 3.

The bet requires a player to correctly select the winners of Races 3 through 7 and has a base wager of 50 cents. The conclusion of the Pick 5 when the track last raced on the final Saturday of 2017 resulted in a carryover of $28,786, which served as the catalyst for the Big M – in partnership with United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering – to offer the huge pool promise.

Program pages for all Pick 5 races, as well as the $50,000 guaranteed Pick 4 (3 through 11) will be available on the wagering tab at www.ustrotting.com, courtesy of Track Master.

Live racing at the Meadowlands takes place every Friday and Saturday evening and has a first race post time of 6:35 p.m.
