GOLDEN GATE TO ALSO OFFER BETTORS & HORSEMEN RESTRICTED CLAIMING RACES AIMED AT ACCOMODATING SMALLER BARNS
BERKELEY, Calif. (Dec. 5, 2017)–Golden Gate Fields has announced it will make significant changes to its wagering menu when the Bay Area track opens for its Winter/Spring Meet on Tuesday, Dec. 26. With one dollar rolling Super High Fives available throughout the day, Golden Gate is also adding a Late 50 cent Pick Five wager, which will be offered on the last five races. And, in an effort to better accommodate stables with 20 or fewer horses, Golden Gate will also be carding restricted claiming races for $20,000 and less for 3-year-olds and up.
Golden Gate’s Single Ticket Pick Six Jackpot will remain in place, as will the popular Early Pick 5, which offers fans a low 14 percent takeout on the first five races each day. (In the event of any Pick 5 carryover, monies will carry to the corresponding Early or Late Pick 5 the following day).
Golden Gate Fields will also continue to offer a low 15.43 percent takeout on all win, place and show wagers; one dollar exactas, two dollar rolling Daily Doubles, one dollar rolling Pick 3s, an early and late 50 cent Pick 4, and 10 cent Superfectas.
Golden Gate’s 2017-18 Winter/Spring Meet Wagering Menu will offer the following:
–Two separate 50 cent Pick 5s, to be offered on the first and last five races each day.
–Rolling one dollar Super High 5s. This wager requires bettors to correctly select the first five finishers in each race (minimum of five runners). If no one selects the top five finishers in exact order, 100 percent of the net pool carries over to the next race featuring the Super High Five.
