TORONTO, September 6, 2020 – Woodbine Entertainment announced today that there will be a mandatory payout for the Woodbine Thoroughbred Jackpot Hi-5 next Saturday, Sept. 12 to close out the Queen’s Plate program.
Wagering on the Jackpot Hi-5 will be suspended following the Monday, Sept. 7 race card and will not be offered on the Friday, Sept. 11 program. The carryover, which has been growing since the last mandatory payout date on August 8, currently sits at $193,135.97.
The Jackpot Hi-5 wager, which has a 20-cent minimum bet, requires horseplayers to select the top five finishers in the correct order for the final race on the program. The Jackpot proviso means that the entire pool pays out only when there is a single winning ticket or when there is a mandatory payout.
The Jackpot Hi-5 pool for the previous mandatory payout included a carryover of $295,470.54, with $897,226.70 in new money wagered. The payout was $13,727.24 for a 20-cent base wager.
First race post time for Monday’s nine-race card is 1 p.m. The draw for next Saturday’s race card will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
