In addition to 8 races this Thursday night, Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races is also pleased to offer its horseplayers a Pick 5 carryover of $36,290 following a trio of longshots finding the winners’ circle during the sequence on Saturday evening. 

Charles Town’s Pick 5 commences in Race 4, covers the last 5 races on the Thursday night card and offers players a low 12% takeout on the wager.  The last time Charles Town’s Pick 5 carried over to the following card, the low takeout combined with the carryover netted bettors an advantage with more than 8% paid out above and beyond the gross pool for the night.

The fourth is a $32,000 allowance featuring several talented older runners, including the multiple stakes winner William and Mary, a homebred for trainer James. W. Casey’s Taylor Mountain Farm. Another Casey trainee, Hero’s Man, is the lukewarm 3-1 favorite.

In addition to the carryover available in Thursday night’s Pick 5, the carryover pool for the Charles Town 6-12 stands at $28,003.  The Charles Town 6-12 – a jackpot style Pick 6 which also sports a 12% takeout – covers the last 6 races on the card and begins in Race 3.

Live racing at Charles Town will take place Thursday through Saturday this week with each program kicking off at 7:00 P.M. EST.
