Arlington International Racecourse is running the final day of thoroughbred racing today, Sept. 29, 2013, and must pay out the jackpot, according to a Sept. 29 email media announcement. This is a great day for experienced bettors to head over to the racetrack on play a game of chance.
Having not been solved since June 7, Arlington International Racecourse’s JackPOT Pick 9 will have a mandatory distribution Sunday, closing day for the track’s 2013 season. With a jackpot pool of $759,941 already in the coffers, the total pool for the wager is expected to be well into seven figures, according to Arlington Park.
The JackPOT Pick 9 is a dime wager ($1,000) that requires a bettor to have the winners in the first nine races on a card but only pays out the jackpot pool if there is exactly one ticket with the winners in all nine of the Pick 9 races, otherwise half of that day’s net pool is distributed to those ticket holders with the most winners with the rest added to the jackpot.
However with the 2013 meet ending Sunday, the entire jackpot pool plus Sunday’s net Pick 9 pool must be paid out. The JackPOT Pick 9 begins on Sunday’s first race. Post time at Arlington on Sunday is 1 p.m. Central time.
