CAMPBELLVILLE, October 9 – Horseplayers from all over will be locked in on Saturday’s final-race (Race 12) at Mohawk Racetrack for the latest Jackpot Hi-5 Mandatory Payout.
The carryover heading into Saturday’s mandatory payout is $978,779.26, which is the largest pool ever carried over into a Mohawk or Woodbine Standardbred Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout.
The current carryover began forming on July 6 and grew until last Saturday (October 7). A total of $261,179 in new money was wagered into the Jackpot Hi-5 during Saturday’s final offering of the wager ahead of the mandatory payout.
With nearly $1 million being carried over into Saturday, the total Jackpot Hi-5 pool could reach $3 million. The last two Standardbred Hi-5 mandatory payouts (March 11, 2017 and December 23, 2016) saw $1.4 million and $2 million of new money wagered, respectively.
This Saturday’s Jackpot Hi-5 event is a Non-Winners of 3 Races or $42,000 Lifetime featuring an overflow field of 12 pacers. The purse for the event is $30,000 and all starters will receive money.
The Jackpot Hi-5 requires horseplayers to select the top-five finishers in order and features a $0.20 minimum wager and a 15 per cent takeout.
The Jackpot Hi-5 will wrap up a strong 12-race card on Saturday, which also features the $1.8 million Ontario Sires Stakes Super Finals. The top two and three-year-olds in Ontario will compete in eight $225,000 championship races.
