The New York Racing
Association, Inc. (NYRA) will offer a $500,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4 on
Saturdays at Saratoga Race Course.
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 $500,000.
On Saturday, August 25, the guarantee will rise to $1 million in
conjunction with the 143rd running of the Grade 1, $1 million
Travers Stakes. The Travers undercard will also include the Grade 1, $500,000
Foxwoods King’s Bishop, Grade 1, $500,000 Test, and Grade 2, $250,000
Ballston Spa presented by Jose Cuervo.
The 2012 Saratoga
meet will run for 40 days, beginning Friday, July 20 and ending on Labor Day,
