Del Mar is adding two new bets for its summer meeting &ndash; a 50-cent pick five with a 14 percent takeout, and a head-to-head bet on Saturday&rsquo;s featured race &ndash; and will offer a $50,000 supplement to the pick six each Sunday on days without a carryover.\r\nThe additions were announced at Thursday&rsquo;s meeting of the California Horse Racing Board, and will start on opening day, July 20.\r\nThe pick five with a reduced takeout was launched at the current Hollywood Park spring-summer meeting, and has proven to be popular, with pools averaging $202,389 for the first 38 days of the Hollywood meet, through Thursday. The bet is conducted on the first five races at Hollywood Park and will have a similar schedule at Del Mar.\r\n&ldquo;This has proven to be very successful, and we intend to host the same bet,&rdquo; according to Del Mar&rsquo;s director of marketing, Craig Dado.\r\nHollywood Park has a consolation for pick five tickets with four winners, but Del Mar will not have a consolation provision. So far, Hollywood Park has had one pick five carryover, $107,487 on May 8, which resulted in an additional $799,630 wagered on the next racing day, May 12.\r\nThe head-to-head bet will include two horses in the Saturday feature race, with the participants selected by the Del Mar racing office, Dado said. The bet will have a takeout of 10 percent. A similar bet has been offered by the Breeders&rsquo; Cup on its autumn championship days. Focus-group studies indicated a high interest in such a bet, Dado said.\r\nThe $50,000 supplement to the pick six is designed to attract more betting by offering a bigger payout. Dado described California&rsquo;s pick six &ldquo;as essentially the national pick six,&rdquo; a status he said that Del Mar was &ldquo;concerned we could give up in the long term.&rdquo;\r\nHe said the $50,000 supplement to the Sunday pick six pool will be distributed as a bonus for winning tickets. As an example, he said that in the event that 25 tickets correctly selected all six winners, each ticket would receive an additional $2,000. In the event a carryover occurs from Saturday to Sunday, the supplement will not be offered, but the supplement would be included in a carryover from a Sunday to the following day of racing, Dado said.\r\n&ldquo;We like this bet,&rdquo; Dado told the racing board. &ldquo;We need to get some buzz around the pick six. We think this will do it. Players can plan for it.&rdquo;\r\nDel Mar is scheduled to run five-day weeks, Wednesday through Sunday, from July 20 through Sept. 7, and will run seven-race programs on the final three Fridays &ndash; Aug. 19 and 26 and Sept. 2 &ndash; and possibly on some Thursdays, according to the track&rsquo;s director of racing, Tom Robbins. On Fridays, Del Mar will have a first post time of 4 p.m., and will offer concerts after the races each week. In the past, the track has shifted first post on Fridays to 3:30 p.m. toward the end of the meeting to allow for eight-race programs at a time of the year with earlier sunsets.
