|OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Sunday’s nine-race card at Aqueduct Racetrack will be highlighted by a mandatory payout of the Empire 6, which boasts a jackpot of $363,535.|
In January, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) announced a series of bi-weekly mandatory payouts for the Empire 6 wager beginning with Sunday’s card and continuing, every other Sunday, to include February 23, March 8, March 22, April 5, and April 19. The Empire 6 requires the bettor to select the first-place finisher of the final six races of the card.
On non-mandatory payout days, if one unique ticket exists, then 100% of the net pool, plus the jackpot carryover if applicable, will be paid to the winner.
If there is no unique wager selecting the first-place finisher in all six races, then 75% of the day’s net pool will be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of races. The remainder will be added into the jackpot and carried to the next day’s Empire 6.
Sunday’s Empire 6 wager will start in Race 4 with an approximate post time of 2:25 p.m. Eastern and will include the featured $100,000 Biogio’s Rose in Race 8.
First post on Sunday’s card is 1 p.m. For more information on the Empire 6, please visit http://www.nyrabets.com.
