NYRA Triple Play wager to launch May 1 at Belmont Park

April 21, 2022

OZONE PARK, N.Y. – The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) today announced the creation of the NYRA Triple Play, a new Pick 3 wager to be made available exclusively to retail customers on Sundays during the upcoming spring/summer meet at Belmont Park. 

Featuring a $3 bet minimum and 24 percent takeout, the NYRA Triple Play will cover the final three races of Sunday cards throughout the 44-day spring summer meet. Each NYRA Triple Play will feature a mandatory payout of the net pool. Wagering on the NYRA Triple Play will be available on ADW platforms and at simulcast facilities across the country. 

The NYRA Triple Play will launch on May 1, the first Sunday of the spring/summer meet, which opens on April 28 and will offer 59 stakes races worth $16.95 million in total purse money. 

The retail-only NYRA Triple Play is the latest piece of a NYRA pilot program designed to reward the everyday player with opportunities for significant payouts. In 2021, NYRA replaced its $.20 jackpot Empire Pick 6 with a $1 Pick 6 available to retail customers only. Previous to that, NYRA restricted both the Late Pick 5 and the Cross-Country Pick 5 to retail customers only. 

“NYRA is committed to adding new wagering opportunities that appeal to our core customers,” said Joe Longo, General Manager of NYRA Content Services. “We look forward to further evaluating how the Triple Play performs within the context of our overall wagering menu.”

The 15-day Aqueduct spring meet continues through Sunday, April 24 with live racing offered Thursday-Sunday.
