In addition to holding its biggest card of the year this Friday night when it plays host to the $600,000 Charles Town Classic (G2), $200,000 Charles Town Oaks (G3) and five other stakes, Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races will offer a mandatory payout of the Charles Town 6-12 carryover, which currently stands at $111,750 with only one live racing program remaining before Classic night.
The Charles Town 6-12 is a jackpot style Pick 6 covering the final six races on each Charles Town card and carries a low 12 percent takeout.
Because of the low takeout and size of the carryover, the last four mandatory payouts of the Charles Town 6-12 have resulted in a players’ advantage with 3 percent to 13 percent paid out on top of the gross pool on the night of the distribution. Moreover, this Friday’s mandatory payout is anticipated to be an all-stakes Pick 6, which will include both the Charles Town Classic and Charles Town Oaks.
Live racing this Friday at Charles Town kicks off at a special 5 p.m. ET first post, with the Charles Town Classic currently scheduled as Race 11 with a post time of 10:18.
