YONKERS, NY, Monday, April 16, 2018--Yonkers Raceway's Monday evening's (April 16th) Pick 5 harness racing wager figured to get some extra ganders, and indeed it did.

The gimmick, which carried over from Saturday (Apr. 14th), started with $7,066.26 of unclaimed coinage. The $20,000 guaranteed pool (in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program) was easily hurdled when $36,288 of new investments chimed in.

After new-money takeout, there was a pool of $34,282.75.

The single winning combination of 4/3/6/6/1 returned that season-high $34,282.75, as one ticket took down the pool. Legs 1,2 and 5 in the sequence were driven by Joe Bongiorno.

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races 7 through 11 every racing program (for cards that have at least 11 races, otherwise races 6 through 10). It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Saturday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
