A run of upsets during both the Pick 5 and Pick 6 sequences on Friday night at Yonkers Raceway wound up with nobody being able to hit either of them. As a result, there will be carryovers and guaranteed pools in both wagers when harness racing resumes at the oval on Monday night. The Pick 6, which starts in race three, will offer a $12,573.07 carryover and a $25,000 guaranteed pool, and the Pick 5, which gets underway in the fifth race, will have a $4,412.72 carryover and a $15,000 guaranteed pool.  Both guarantees are being offered as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program. Free past performances for the Pick 5 and the Pick 6, courtesy of TrackMaster, will be available here.  Yonkers Raceway's Pick 5 and Pick 6 wagers both have a takeout rate of 20 percent, as does the nightly Pick 4.  Monday night's 10-race program at Yonkers is scheduled to get underway at 7:15 P.M.

When it comes to online gaming, the state of Kentucky is one of the most oxymoronic states in the country. Despite being the hub of horse racing in the U. S. and profiting tremendously from betting on those races, the state’s leadership has prevented online casino gaming, sports betting and online poker from being opened in the state. It even went to the point of suing PokerStars for allowing people from the Bluegrass State to play on the site. Thus, the recent introduction of legislation to regulate and legalize a plethora of online gaming options comes as a big surprise. Proposed Legislation Would Legalize Sports Betting, Online Poker In 2020, Kentucky State Representative Adam Koenig introduced legislation that would have legalized sports betting in the state. It passed through the committee he chairs, the Licensing, Occupations and Administrative Regulations Committee, unanimously, but it did not come to the floor of the Kentucky Legislature for consideration. Undaunted, Koenig has filed his bill once again, which is practically a photocopy of what he issued in 2020. This bill is known as House Bill 241 and it would open the state of Kentucky for a variety of gaming options. Along with legalizing sports betting, it would also provide regulation for online poker and daily fantasy sports (DFS). Three different segments of the Kentucky government – the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (sports betting), the Kentucky Public Protection Cabinet (DFS) and the Kentucky Lotter Corporation (online poker) – would oversee the activities, meaning that there wouldn’t have to be any more bureaucracy created for regulating the activities. There would be a few licenses that would be available inside the state. Any of the state’s horse or harness racing tracks would be able to receive licenses and any venue with a 50,000-fan capacity could also take part. That would draw in not only such iconic venues as Churchill Downs (the home of the Kentucky Derby) and Keeneland (another famous horse racing venue), but it would also allow the Kentucky Speedway, up until this year a host of NASCAR racing, to participate. Why would Kentucky be considering such actions? Every state that is located around them offers sports betting and the state’s coffers are missing out on the action. If it were to pass, however, there would be no action in the state until at least 2023. Convoluted History on Gaming in Kentucky Other than betting on the ponies, the state of Kentucky has been notoriously slow in coming to the table regarding any segment of online gaming. In 2010, the state filed a lawsuit against PokerStars for $290 million. The state, at that time, alleged that PokerStars was illegally offering their product to their fellow Kentuckians and that they had lost upwards of $300 million on the site. In 2015, a judge ruled in favor of the state, ordering that PokerStars pay treble damages, which tripled what the judgement was. Instead of owing $290 million, now PokerStars was on the hook for $870 million, but they appealed the decision. In 2018 The Stars Group, which owned PokerStars at that time, won an appeal in the Kentucky court system, but the state chose to appeal the issue. That appeal was heard in December 2020 by the Kentucky Supreme Court, with that court ruling in favor of the state and upping what PokerStars owed to $1.3 billion. All of this occurred while the current governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshear, ran on a platform that regulating and licensing online gaming operations could be a revenue booster for the state. Sports betting alone in the state of Kentucky would raise up to $22.5 million annually and, should the state also bring online poker and DFS into the mix, it could greatly increase that amount. Odds of passage of House Bill 241 are iffy at best. Other legislators are slow to come to cosponsor the bill and, although there is some support from government retirees (who are looking to use the revenues for underfunded pensions), there doesn’t seem to be a rush to getting to the bill. There are also problems with COVID protocols, which have significantly slowed down the legislative process in the state. Thus, don’t expect Kentucky to join the ranks of the online gaming world anytime soon. By Earl Burton Reprinted with permission of pokernewsdaily

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - It was going to be difficult to match the excitement and bettor enthusiasm of Saturday, Jan. 2 at The Meadowlands when a harness racing $46,731 carryover and $150,000 guarantee led to a total 20-cent Pick-5 pool of $360,948. Last Saturday (Jan. 9), there was no carryover off which the Pick-5 pool could build, so track management and The Standardbred Owners Association of New Jersey got together to 'seed' the pool with $25,000 and give it a $100,000 promise. What resulted was a total pool of nearly $200,000 that for a second consecutive Saturday served as the catalyst for what was a huge night of betting at The Big M. "What a start to the year," said Meadowlands' Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Jason Settlemoir. "Last week's 20-cent Pick-5 was seeded with an extra $25,000. The 'new money' of $170,758 brought the total pool to $195,758, and the winning payout was $25,057 for each 20-cent winning ticket. "The $25,000 seeding was our way to thank the horseplayers for their enormous support of The Meadowlands. Their wagering has made The Big M the most popular nighttime signal of any breed in horse racing, with our Saturday Winter Meet handle averaging over $4 million. The Meadowlands remains an industry leader in lowering takeout and offers six player-friendly wagers with an extremely low 15 percent takeout every night. We are abundantly grateful to horseplayers around the world for their business." Speaking of business, the last three Saturdays have seen plenty, with big increases over the corresponding cards from the year before. The total handle on Dec. 26, 2020 was $3,718,250, which was $800,000 more than the Saturday after Christmas 2019. Jan. 2 of this year saw a gigantic $4,562,477 of action, an increase of $1.8 million, while $3,646,603 was put in play on Jan. 9, an increase of almost $1.1 million. As usual, Pick-4 play was vigorous, as last Saturday saw the two pools combine for just over $180,000, an average of $90,000 per wager. "It's been an enormous month for Strategic Wagering and the United States Trotting Association," said Settlemoir. "This is the 11th year for the Strategic Wagering arm of the USTA. It offers low takeout wagers, free program pages, carryover Information and guaranteed pools. Strategic Wagering has increased interest in harness racing and has been a big part of the wagering resurgence you see on a nightly basis, and The Meadowlands is proud to be a part of this initiative." TODD'S GREAT, WON EIGHT: Todd McCarthy, the 27-year-old recent Australian arrival who has been tearing things up since his September debut at The Big M, won four races both last Friday (Jan. 8) and Saturday (Jan. 9). The leader of the "Todd Squad" has now recorded four wins on three occasions. Dave Miller also did well last weekend, winning twice on Friday and four times on Saturday. He is now in Florida for the winter and has already been seen in the sulky at Pompano Park. CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE TRACK? There are several options for those who would rather catch the action from The Big M at home. Racing fans can watch all the races live on the Roberts Television Network (rtn.tv). In addition, they can watch and wager by going to the Television Games Network (tvg.com) or their favorite Advance-deposit Wagering site (ADW).

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The New York State Gaming Commission announced the adoption of three new wagering rules that will provide bettors more options in the sport of harness racing in New York. The rules were adopted by the Commission at the November 30 meeting and will take effect on upon publication in the State Register. Commission Executive Director Robert Williams said that he hopes the new wagering rules will provide increased opportunities for bettors while also increasing interest in the sport. “The new Pick Six and Super High Five wagers can create large jackpots for the lucky winners and increase fan interest in our sport. Lowering the number of runners allowed for triple wagering will also be beneficial since triples are one of our most popular wagers,” said John Matarazzo, Director of Racing Operations at Saratoga Raceway. The rules adopted are as follows: Pick Six Jackpot The Pick Six Jackpot rule, also known as the “Rainbow or “Jackpot” wager, will appeal to bettors by providing a larger prize when there is only one winning wager from a pool. If there is more than one winning ticket, then the major portion of the day’s pool is paid out to those who selected six of six winners, and the minor pool is added to the carryover. The carryover gets paid out when there is a unique winning ticket, or when there is an intermediate or final distribution approved by the Commission, which would occur at the end of a race meeting. This new wager parallels the Commission’s Thoroughbred racing pick-six jackpot rule.     Jackpot Super High Five Pools The new wager option requires the selection of the first five finishers in a single race in the correct order of finish. The entire pool would be paid to the bettor with a unique winning ticket, if there is only one winning ticket. If there is not only one winning ticket, the net pool would be split into a major pool and minor pool. The major pool would be a carryover in the next Jackpot Super High Five pool and the minor pool would be divided among all winning wagers. Additionally, the rule provides for contingencies in the event of dead heats and races with fewer than five entrants. Triple Wager The new rule amends the triple wager rule for harness racing, which requires the selection of the first three finishers in a single race in the exact order of finish by reducing the number of entries in a race for which the triple is permitted from six to five.  by: Chelsea Siegal
