10-Cent 'Jersey Shore 6' Spices Monmouth's Betting Menu; $5 Quinella Now Avaialable On Final Race Each Day

Posted Tuesday, May 7, 2013

 

 

Monmouth Park’s wagering menu will expand to include a new exotic bet and an old favorite for the 2013 racing season. 

          The new wager is the Jersey Shore Six, a pick six with some key differences from prior multiple-race bets offered at Monmouth. The old favorite is a quinella, which makes its return to New Jersey programs as a $5 wager on the last race each day. 

          The Jersey Shore Six, which will encompass the final six races each day, has a base price of 10 cents. The only way to win the entire pool is to have the lone ticket with six winners that day.  

If there is more than one ticket with all six winners, then all winning tickets will share 60 percent of the total betting pool each day. The other 40 percent of the day’s pool will be carried over until the next racing day. The carryover will accumulate until the day there is just one winning pick six ticket. 

On days when no ticket has six winners, payouts (based on 60 percent of the total pool) will be made to the tickets with the most winners that day. 

Monmouth’s Jersey Shore Six is the same wager as the “Rainbow Six,” which proved so popular during the 2013 winter meeting at Gulfstream Park in Florida. 

“Fans really loved this pick six bet at Gulfstream,” said Bob Kulina, president of Monmouth Park. “Because it was so successful there, we think our fans will appreciate the chance to play the Jersey Shore Six here.” 

During the Gulfstream meeting, the wager paid out more than $1 million twice, with a better than $3 million ticket sold in New Jersey. 

The quinella, which has been absent from New Jersey racing for 50 years, makes its return at Monmouth in the final race on opening day. To win the quinella, a ticket must have the horses that run first and second, in either order. The minimum bet on the quinella will be $5.
