LOS ALAMITOS TO CONTINUE TO OFFER $10,000 PICK 6 PROMO

ON SELECTED SUNDAY NIGHTS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

             The traditional nighttime $2 Los Alamitos Race Course Pick Six has always been a great bet. The wager has seen a steady growth in popularity over the past five months at Los Alamitos. It will now continue its exciting new promotion for horseplayers in which Los Alamitos seeds the Pick 6 pool with $10,000 of company money on Sunday nights whenever there is not a carryover going into that evening’s program.

            The first Sunday in February eligible for the Pick 6 promotion at Los Alamitos will be February 14, which is also the night of the Grade 1, Brad McKinzie Los Alamitos Winter Championship. A total of $10,000 will be added to the $2 Pick 6 at Los Alamitos on Sunday, February 14 if there is not a carryover already going into that evening’s program. Los Alamitos Race Course will continue to offer the promotion every Sunday until further notice. With this promo, the total pool in the Pick 6 on Sundays is averaging $67,000 per week.  

            As a traditional $2 Pick Six, the wager features a 70/30 percent split each night. That means there are no jackpot provisions, and that on a nightly basis whenever there are tickets that have correctly selected six out of six winners, those winning tickets each equally share 70 percent of the total pool. If no one correctly tabs six out of six, 70% of the total pool will carryover for the next racing night at Los Alamitos.

            “Los Alamitos has some of the best and most loyal fans in racing and we wanted to do something to thank them for their continued support of our nightly program,” said Orlando Gutierrez, the Los Alamitos director of marketing. “We wanted to build some added excitement for our horseplayers on nights when we already have some of our best stakes races of the week.”

            “We’ve seen the new money wagered into the Pick 6 pools on carryover nights grow in recent months,” Gutierrez added. “For example, our November 15 program featured a Pick Six carryover of $4,615. Horseplayers added $52,374 of new money into the pool. Similarly, on December 12 we had a carryover going in of $6,340 and the new money wagered into it that night was $50,643. With this Pick Six promotion on Sundays in January, we are making sure that some type of money – either the existing carryover or the $10,000 promotional money – will be there for horseplayers to go after. It’s going to be a lot of fun for horseplayers to go after and win.”

            The LA County Fair Meet at Los Alamitos Race Course in December also featured a traditional $2 Pick Six. On Friday, December 18, the program featured a multi-day carryover of $423,178 leading to $1.809,485 of new money. By the end of an exciting racing day, six tickets able to isolate the half-dozen winners in the sequence and each were rewarded with a Los Alamitos daytime record payoff of $228,816.40.
