ANDERSON, Ind.--July 16, 2019--With a carry-over in excess of $4,500, Harrah's Hoosier Park Racing & Casino has announced a $20,000 Guaranteed Pick-5 pool for harness racing on Wednesday, July 17.

The Guaranteed Pick-5 will be offered in addition to the regularly scheduled $20,000 Guaranteed Trifecta in race 10 and the $10,000 Guaranteed Hoosier High-5 in race 14. In partnership with the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering program and the Indiana Standardbred Association, Hoosier Park will offer these signature wagers for the action packed 14-race card on Wednesday that is set to begin at 6:30 p.m.

For the second consecutive night, the Pick-5 sequence carried over. Two long-shot winners in Tuesday's Pick-5 sequence at Hoosier Park sparked a carryover of $4,650.68 and will kick-start the Pick-5 pool for Wednesday.

The Pick-5, which offers a 50-cent minimum wager, will begin in the tenth race and will continue through the fourteenth race of the program. Approximate post time for the first leg of the wager, the tenth race, is 9:12 p.m. (EDT). Free past performances for the Pick-5 races will be available on the USTA website. Expert selections and handicapping tools are also available on the handicapping section of Hoosier Park's website.

Wednesday's 14-race card will feature three divisions of an Indiana-sired mini-series for two-year-old filly pacers and a $15,000 three-year-old filly trot. The three-year-old filly trot, slated as the ninth race on the program, will feature the return of Verlin Yoder's Breeders Crown champion, Woodside Charm in her second start of the season. Enlisted as the 6-5 morning line choice, Woodside Charm will be aiming to score the first win of her three-year-old campaign from post seven with Yoder in the bike.

Live racing at Hoosier Park will follow a Tuesday-Saturday schedule, with a daily post time of 6:30 pm. The 160-day, all harness racing meet will be conducted through November 9. For more information on the upcoming entertainment and live racing schedule, please visit
