Monmouth: Pick 5 Carryover


A $123,029 Pick 5 carryover awaits Monmouth Park bettors tomorrow. The Pick 5, which carries only a 15% takeout, has a base betting amount of only 50 cents. Those of us who whiffed today -- even those of us who went 0-for-five -- will get a clean slate tomorrow, after a long day today. With another tough card tomorrow, it also figures to be a long night of handicapping...and drinking.

It couldn't have worked out better for Monmouth, as the wager figures to attract a lot of interest from around the country. On the heels of a successful opening day, this situation will boost handle even further. Hopefully, rain, which is a possibility, but far from a certainty, will hold off.
