Belmont S. to Anchor Two-Day Pick 5 Wager


Belmont Park | Horsephotos

A Pick 5 wager spanning Friday and Saturday and culminating with the running of the GI Belmont S., will be offered by the New York Racing Association. The sequence will be a $1 base minimum and will feature a low takeout of 15% and a mandatory payout.

The Pick 5 will kick off with Friday's seventh race at Belmont, a seven-furlong optional-claiming event on the turf for older fillies and mares, with post time at 4:32 p.m. ET. The race has drawn a field of 11, with one main-track-only entrant. It continues with race nine, the $80,000 Sir Cat S. for 3-year-olds at six furlongs on the grass before picking up on Saturday with the GI Longines Acorn S. (race eight, 4:15 p.m. ET).

The GI Jaipur Invitational S., a 'Win and You're In' race for the GI Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint, features as the penultimate leg of the sequence. The two-day Pick 5 concludes with the Belmont, the first leg of the 2020 Triple Crown to be contested over the one-turn mile and an eighth. Tiz the Law (Constitution) figures a warm favorite against nine other sophomores.

Advance wagering for the Belmont program will be available Friday.
