At least $15-million in wagering is expected for Arlington Million day on Aug. 10 at Arlington International Race Course, including more than half-a-million dollars on multi-race wagers involving the International Festival of Racing.
The 12-race card features 5 stakes races, including the Grade 1 triple of the $600,000 Beverly D (race 9), $500,000 Secretariat Stakes (race 10), and $1-million Arlington Million (Race 11). Those races play a key role in a trio of guaranteed pools on the card that begins 12:15 p.m. CDT.
• $150,000 guaranteed all-stakes Pick 5 on races 8-12
• $300,000 all-graded stakes TwinSpires.com Pick 4 (races 9-12)
• $100,000 all-graded stakes Pick 3 (races 10-12)
“The International Festival of Racing features star power and competitive racing—a great exacta for players seeking big payouts,” Arlington President Tony Petrillo said. “All-stakes multi-race wagers have proven popular with bettors, and we’re pleased to guarantee these pools to give our players confidence that they’ll be playing for big money.”
The Million Day Pick 5 have proven to be a challenging sequence, as nobody picked 5 last year, resulting in a record $375,446 carryover, and in 2017, there were only 2 winners who received $165,138 on a 50-cent bet.
