The New York path to the Kentucky Derby trail continues on February 1 at the Big A with the 140th renewal of the Grade 3, $250,000 Withers, which offers 10-4-2-1 qualifying points to the top-four finishers.
The Saturday, February 1 card will also feature the return of the popular Cross Country Pick 5, which in partnership with other racetracks combines some of the best races from NYRA and around the country in one bet.
The minimum bet for the multi-track, multi-race wager is 50 cents. Wagering on the Cross Country Pick 5 is also available on track, on ADW platforms, and at simulcast facilities across the country. Every week will feature a mandatory payout of the net pool.
The New York State Gaming Commission approved nine dates for the Cross Country Pick 5, with each Saturday starting from February 1 through to March 28 to offer the unique wager in conjunction with both Oaklawn Park and Tampa Bay Downs. For more information, visit NYRABets.com.
