Santa Anita Offers Two New Wagers as Pick Fours Grow in Popularity

Santa Anita Park has added two new wagers to its exotic betting menu and becomes one of a growing number of tracks to offer a pick four wager. Beginning Wednesday, the track will offer a daily $1 pick four and $2 rolling daily doubles.

"We're responding to the wishes of the customer," F. Jack Liebau, the track's president and C.E.O., said in a written statement. "We've had a lot of inquiries regarding these wagering formats and we're here to service our customers."

The pick four wager will be comprised of the track's last four races each day. The rolling daily double begins with the first race and continues throughout the day.

Turfway Park began offering a daily pick four in December and an all-stakes pick four on Grand Slam II day at Calder last weekend returned $77,762.40 for every dollar wagered on the winning combination from a total handle of $291,465. In addition, Churchill Downs offered the relatively new wager on Breeders' Cup Day.
