PICK FIVE CARRYOVER AT THE MEADOWLANDS INTO SATURDAY

Friday, March 10, 2017

For the second time in the past week, there will be a Pick Five carryover at the Meadowlands thanks to a tough sequence on Friday where the post time favorite was defeated in all five legs. $38,069 will be added to the pool tomorrow that covers Races 1-5.

A win by 32/1 long shot Better Call Saul in Race 2 helped the carryover. When Mr. Julian, the 2/1 morning line favorite, but off at 4/1, won Race 5, the carryover was clinched.

A $25,497 into last Friday's card attracted $170,414 in new money. A relatively straightforward sequence returned $762.10 thanks to the large pool and nearly zero percent takeout.

With an even larger carryover and a Saturday night card, it can reasonably be expected that the new money should surpass $200,000 which would create a negative takeout scenario, an extremely rare wagering opportunity for horseplayers.

The 50-cent base wager begins with the opening race. 43 horses are entered prior to scratches in the sequence.

Post time is 7:15 p.m.
