Thoroughbred meet starts Saturday with deep wagering menu

June 11, 2021

TORONTO, June 11, 2021 – Woodbine Racetrack is set to launch the 2021 Thoroughbred season this Saturday (June 12) with an 11-race card beginning at 1:20 p.m.

The opening weekend will feature live (spectator-free) racing on Saturday and Sunday before the live racing scheduled increases to three days for the following weekend and the regular four days starting Thursday, June 24.

The season-opening cards, and all Saturday and Sunday cards throughout the meet, will be highlighted by a $100,000 guaranteed pool for the Early Pick-4 (starting Race 4). The Early Pick-5, which starts in Race 2, will have a $50,000 guarantee on each race day throughout the year. Woodbine will continue to offer a Late Pick-5 on Saturday and Sunday cards this season.

Woodbine will continue to offer the Jackpot Hi-5 on each day’s final race. Unlike in previous years where the pool starts from scratch, the Jackpot Hi-5 will start with a carryover of $117,062.64 on Saturday due to the cancellation of last year’s final card.

The Power Pick-6 wager, featuring a 15 per cent takeout, is again on the wagering menu in 2021. The jackpot wager is offered on each day’s final six races and builds a carryover for every day there is not a single winning six for six ticket.

Other daily wagering menu offerings include rolling Doubles, rolling Pick-3’s and a Late Pick-4 on all cards with nine or more races scheduled. All races contain Win, Place, Show, Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta wagering unless otherwise noted.
