YONKERS, NY, Monday, December 2, 2019--With inclement weather around the New York metropolitan area, Yonkers Raceway has cancelled its live harness racing program for Monday evening (Dec. 2nd).

It's the fifth cancellation of 2019.

Evening simulcasting has also been scrapped (afternoon simulcasting was not scheduled).

Live racing is set to resume Tuesday evening (Dec. 3rd), with the usual first post of 6:50 PM.

Horsemen note that the double-draw for Friday and Saturday (Dec. 6th and 7th) continues as scheduled, with the entry box closing at 3:30 PM.

With Monday evening’s (Dec. 2nd) card a casualty of the weather, Yonkers Raceway’s Tuesday night (Dec. 3rd) Pick 5 wager now starts with a carryover of $3,942.61 and a $15,000 guaranteed pool.

The guarantee has been approved by the New York State Gaming Commission and is in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program.

The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races 7 through 11 Tuesday night. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Saturday evening), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.

For more information, please contact the race office at (914) 457-2627.
