September 10, 2020

One Dollar minimum wager will feature low 15% Takeout beginning opening day, Sept. 19

ARCADIA, Calif. — Santa Anita and Golden Gate Fields have announced they will partner on a brand new low takeout “Golden Hour Late Pick 4,” effective Saturday, Sept. 19, the opening day of Santa Anita’s 18-day Autumn Meet.

The wager, which features a one dollar minimum and a low takeout of 15 percent, will be comprised of the last two races at both Santa Anita and Golden Gate each racing day and will complement the successful “Golden Hour Late Double,” which was instituted by the two tracks this past winter.

The “Golden Hour Late Pick 4” will begin with Santa Anita’s second to last race for Leg One, then go to Golden Gate for Leg Two, back to Santa Anita for Leg Three end up each day at Golden Gate with Leg Four, which will be the last race on their program.

“We’ve had a very encouraging response to the ‘Golden Hour Double’ and believe our customers will respond well to this new low takeout wager,” said Santa Anita’s Aidan Butler, Executive Director, CA Racing Operations, for The Stronach Group. 

“We’ve heard feedback from many of our players asking for this type of bet—one that provides a player friendly new wager with a one dollar minimum, capitalizing on the larger competitive fields at the end of the card.

“This is a fun new addition to our betting menu and will drive extra attention to both of our California tracks as the racing action across the country is winding down each day.” 

First post time each racing day during Santa Anita’s Autumn Meet will be at 12:30 p.m. For additional information, please visit or call (626) 574-RACE.
