ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 22, 2020) — Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields have combined forces to offer an exciting new wager beginning Saturday, Feb. 29.

With a five dollar minimum, the Golden Hour Double features a player friendly low 15 percent takeout. The wager will launch with a $50,000 guaranteed pool.
“We’re constantly looking at new ways to bring excitement to our wagering customers and the Golden Hour Double will do just that,” said Aidan Butler, Acting Executive Director, California Racing Operations, TSG. “Our players want big pools to bet into with good field size and key betting value. With a low 15 percent takeout, this new wager provides them with a compelling and competitive way to finish out their race day.”
