Assiniboia Downs will feature a record mandatory Pick 5 payout Monday that is expected to top $1 million (about US$782,000).

The featured race is the 74th running of the $100,000 Manitoba Derby (about US$78,000). The race drew a field of eight highly competitive 3-year-olds going the distance of 1 1/8 miles.

Monday’s program also will include the $50,000 Harvey Warner Manitoba (about US$39,000) Mile Stakes and the $50,000 Escape Clause Stakes.

In addition to the feature races, players will have a crack at the ASD Jackpot Pick 5 pool, which has not been won this year and is set to be a mandatory payout that night.

The jackpot is $515,683 (about US$403,000) going into Monday’s program. The Pick 5 covers races 4-8 starting at 10:05 p.m. EDT. Tickets are 20 cents each.

The program also will include a $100,000 guaranteed Pick 4 pool.

First post for the Manitoba Derby program is set for 8:30 p.m. EDT.

Assiniboia Downs racing continues Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights with first post at 8:30 p.m. EDT.
