Hawthorne to Offer Twist to Pick 6 for Fall Thoroughbred Meet

New Wagering Minimums Offered on Multi-Race Wagers


STICKNEY, IL Ė When live racing returns on Friday, October 3, new wagers, and wagering minimums will be offered for many of the wagers at Hawthorne Race Course.Hawthorne opens the fall thoroughbred meet on Friday with a 1:45 PM post.With real dirt racing all meet and a turf course expected to offer racing for the opening two months of the fall meet, Hawthorne will be racing live every Wednesday through Saturday.

††††††††††† Many of the wagers that Hawthorne has offered in the past will continue to be offered this fall but with new minimums.With fields of a minimum of six wagering interests, Hawthorne will be offering Win-Place-Show, Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta wagering on every race.The minimum Win-Place-Show wager is $1, along with Exacta wagers.Takeout on WPS is only 17%, while Exacta takeout remains at 20.5%.This fall, the minimum Trifecta and Superfecta wager has changed to $.20.This allows patrons the opportunity to use multiple horses in each wager along with the ability to make multiple tickets for an affordable amount.

New this fall will be the Superfecta carryover.If there are no winning Superfecta wagers on a race, the entire net pool will carryover to the next Superfecta race.

††††††††††† On all cards with nine races or more daily, Hawthorne will offer the Place Pick 9 wager, along with a $.20 minimum wager amount.The Place Pick 9 begins on race one and requires players to pick a horse that finishes first or second in all nine races.On days where there is not a 9 of 9 winning ticket, 80% of the net pool will be carried over to the next cardís pick 9.

††††††††††† Race one will also kick off the Pick 5 wager.The Pick 5 will also offer a $.20 minimum as fans try to select the winner of the first five races on the card.On days when there are no correct 5 of 5 winning tickets, 80% of the net pool will carryover to the next cardís Pick 5.The Pick 5 carries a low takeout of only 14%.

Every live racing day, Hawthorne will be offering rolling Pick 3 and rolling Daily Double wagers.The Pick 3 will have a $.20 minimum while the minimum Daily Double wager will remain $1.

As in the past, Hawthorne will be offering an early and late Pick 4 wager.Beginning on the second race and also covering the final four races on the dayís card, the Pick 4 wagers will be $.20 minimum wagers beginning this fall.The $.20 minimum allows for more horses to be included in the wager, creating more combinations that fans can play.Like the Place Pick 9, if there are no winners of 4 of 4 on the Pick 4, 80% of the net pool will carry to the next cardís Pick 4. The Early Pick 4 will carry to the next Early Pick 4 and the Late Pick 4 to the next Late Pick 4.

††††††††††† The biggest twist to the wagering lineup this fall at Hawthorne is the introduction of the 20 Cent Jackpot Pick 6.Covering the final 6 races on every Hawthorne card, the Jackpot Pick 6 has the potential to produce large carryovers as the meet progresses.To take down the entire Jackpot Pick 6 pool, a player has to have the only winning ticket, correctly selecting the winner of all six races on the same ticket.If there is only one winning ticket in the Jackpot Pick 6, the winner takes the entire pool.On days when there are multiple winners or no winning tickets, 25% of the net wagering pool will be carried over to the next wagering card while 75% of the net pool will be paid out.This will allow for the carryover to grow while still producing strong Pick 6 payouts daily.

††††††††††† Every racing card will close with the Jackpot High 5 Wager.A wager that gained a lot of momentum when it began last year, the Jackpot High 5 requires fans to select the first five finishers in order in the final race of the wagering card.Like the other multi-horse wagers this fall at Hawthorne, the Jackpot High 5 is also a $.20 minimum wager.On days when there are multiple winners, 25% of the net wagering pool will be carried over to the next wagering card.On days when there are no winners, the entire net pool will carryover.
