For the second consecutive year, Churchill Downs Racetrack and Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots will team to offer horseplayers a cross-track Pick 4 on Saturday, Nov. 30.
Billed as the “Fleur de Lis Pick 4,” bettors will be required to pick the winners of four races late Saturday afternoon: two races at Fair Grounds in New Orleans, La. and two stakes events at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.
The minimum wager on the Fleur de Lis Pick 4 is 50 cents. Fair Grounds will serve as host of the wager.
Here's the sequence for the unique Fleur de Lis Pick 4:
· Leg 1: Fair Grounds Race 7 (4:35 p.m. ET)
· Leg 2: Churchill Downs Race 9 (4:57 p.m. ET)
· Leg 3: Fair Grounds Race 9 (5:35 p.m. ET)
· Leg 4: Churchill Downs Race 11 (5:56 p.m. ET)
The second and fourth legs from Churchill Downs are likely to be the Golden Rod and Kentucky Jockey Club, while the Richie Scherer Memorial Stakes is likely to be the third leg from Fair Grounds.
The Fleur de Lis is a symbol that is deeply ingrained in the history of both Louisville and New Orleans and has traditionally been used to represent French royalty. The English translation for the French “fleur-de-lis” is flower of the lily.
