Sam Houston Makes Good on Payout Mistake


Sam Houston Race Park | Coady

After an investigation by Sam Houston Race Park and the Texas Racing Commission into a mandatory “Pick 5” payout after race 10 on Apr. 3, it was determined that only tickets holding five out of five of the winners were paid and no consolation payout was given to those holding tickets with four out of five winners.

Management at Sam Houston has identified the wagering locations of the consolation tickets and notified them to make immediate payment to those ticket holders who should have qualified for consolation payouts. With several live tickets in existence, patrons are urged to present their tickets for payment. The revised prices for the Apr. 3 wager are $9,926.05 for five winners and $43.15 for four winners.

In addition, Sam Houston will not reduce the original, but incorrect, payout of $13,234.75 for those who have already cashed their Pick 5 tickets.
