||Lone Star Park Adds New Pick 5 Wager
with 12% Takeout to 2008 Wagering Menu
On April 7, Lone Star
Park announced the creation of a new Pick 5 Wager with a 12-percent takeout,
a $2 minimum bet, as part of the wagering menu for its 2008 Thoroughbred
racing season. The new Pick 5 wager, which will be offered on the last
five races each day, will have a carryover.
"We think that Lone Star Park's new Pick 5 wager is an exciting
bet that will return more money to our loyal customers," said Lone
Star Park President and General Manager Drew Shubeck. "Our players
have asked us for a lower takeout wager, and we have responded to their
Lone Star's wagering format for 2008 will include:
Win, Place, Show
Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta
All wagers have a $2 minimum, with the exceptions of the 10-cent Superfecta
and 50-cent Pick 4, and a $1 minimum for all Exacta, Trifecta, Daily Double
and Pick 3 and Pick 5 box and wheel bets.
Win, Place, Show, and Exacta wagers will be available on all races at
Lone Star Park in 2008. There will be Trifectas on races with at least
five betting interests, Superfectas on races with at least six betting
interests, rolling Pick 3s, two Daily Doubles (first two and last two
races), and two Pick 4s (Races 2-5 and the final four races) every day
at Lone Star.
Lone Star Park's Thoroughbred Season begins on Thursday, April 10, with
racing on Thursday and Friday nights starting at 6:35 p.m. CT, and Saturday
