Beginning May 12, Belmont
Park will offer a
$350,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4 on Saturdays.
The Late Pick 4 requires bettors to select the winners of the final
four races on the card. By guaranteeing the wager, NYRA will supplement the net
difference if the total pool is less than $350,000.
The Saturday, May 12 card is topped by the Grade 2 Peter Pan, a 1
1/8-mile race for 3-year-olds that attracted a large field, including Grade 2
Jerome winner The Lumber Guy, Calder Derby victor Good Morning Diva, and Grade
2 Louisiana Derby runner-up Mark Valeski. The Peter Pan is a prep for the Grade
1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9.
On Belmont Stakes Day, Belmont
will present a $1 Million Guaranteed All Graded Stakes Pick 4 and a $1 Million
Guaranteed Pick 6. In addition, on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, there will be
a $500,000 Guaranteed All Graded Stakes Pick 4 in conjunction with the running
of the Grade 1, $750,000 Metropolitan Handicap.
