       February has been a month of big Pick Four pools at Los Alamitos Race Course. The month featured a record $160,073 wagered in the early Pick Four on February 10 and now also features a record late Pick Four pool of $121,842 set on Sunday, February 24. The track’s previous mark in the late Pick Four of $121,773 was set on Champion of Champions night on Saturday, December 11, 2010.

 

The program started with an early Pick Four pool of $146,309, which is the 12th highest ever at Los Alamitos. When combined with the record late Pick Four, the two pools add to a total of $268,151 wagered to make it the second highest figure for a single night of racing at Los Alamitos only behind the $272,241 bet during last Sunday’s Los Alamitos Winter Championship card.

 

The 2013 season has featured some of the highest Pick Fours in the track’s history. Six of the track’s 15 highest pools ever have been recorded this year. In addition, two of the top three late Pick Four pools have been posted in 2013. 

 

Los Alamitos offers two Pick Fours each racing night. The early Pick Fours consist of races one through four. The late Pick Fours consist of the final four races on the card. The late Pick Fours have been outstanding and the average pools have ranged as high as $95,000 per night. The racing action continues at Los Alamitos on Friday.
