From a Penn National release
In addition to a trio of stakes races to be run on Thanksgiving Eve at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Racecourse – the headliner being the $200,000 Fabulous Strike – horseplayers will also have the ability to play a pair of carryover pools with mandatory payouts come Wednesday night.
Easily the more prominent of the two guaranteed payouts comes with the Hollywood Hi-5 and its $25,667 carryover. The Hollywood Hi-5 will be offered on Race 2 on Wednesday night’s card, the $100,000 Blue Mountain Juvenile Fillies. The Blue Mountain Juvenile Fillies carries a scheduled post time of 6:31 P.M. EST.
Also being forced out on Wednesday night at Penn National will be the $1,261 carryover in the Penn Jackpot Pick 6. The Pick 6 kicks off in Race 3, the $100,000 Swatara Stakes, which is scheduled to go postward at 6:57 P.M. EST.
Post time for the first race on the Penn National Holiday Racing Festival program will be the track’s standard 6:00 P.M. kick off.
