Del Mar Reports Healthy Jump In Late Pick 5, Pick 6, Late Pick 4 Wagering

Through the first 19 days (Sunday, August 23) of the current Del Mar season, weekend wagering (Saturday and Sunday) on the Late Pick 5 and the Pick 6 have been husky and hearty despite the fact that – other than a handful of owners — the track does not have fans in the stands.

The average Late Pick 5 pool has registered in at $1,177,119. Last year that average was $728,260, meaning there is an increase of $448,859, a remarkable 62% rise.  The average payout on the .50¢ bet has been $9,292.

The average Pick 6 pool this year has been $352,734. That compares to the 2019 average of $279,813, a difference of $72,921, meaning a 26% boost. The Pick 6 is a $2 wager.

Additionally, the track’s Late Pick 4 – a .50¢ bet — is up 16% for the season so far.

The 27-day meet continues through Labor Day Monday, September 7.
