       It was a record setting Pick Four weekend at Los Alamitos headlined by an all-time high pool in the Early Pick Four of $239,868 on Sunday, May 7, the first time that a night time Pick Four pool had gone over $200,000 mark at the Orange County track.

 

The new early Pick Four mark crushed the previous track record of $197,178 set on February 26, 2017. A new record was in the cards even before the horses were on the track for the opening race on the card, as over $100,000 had already been wagered with 12 minutes to post. The pool reached the highly anticipated $200k mark as the horses were approaching the starting gate and over $215,000 as the horses began to get loaded in the gate. For the three-night week, a total of $542,784 was wagered in the early Pick Fours for a record average pool for the week of $180,928. The previous record average for the week was $162,207 set back on April 1-3, 2016.

 

A record average pool for the week was also set in the late Pick Four of $129,157, which included $150,601 wagered in Sunday’s late Pick Four. The previous mark of $124,740 was set earlier this year. Sunday’s late Pick Four pool was also the second highest figure here of all-time, only behind the $160,312 set on Sunday, March 12, 2017.  Other marks set included:

 

  • Most money wagered in the early and late Pick Fours for the week of $930,256 (previous mark was $856,247 on March 31-April 2, 2017).
  • Most money wagered in the early and late Pick Four during a single night of $390,469 set on Sunday night (previous mark was $347,248 on March 12, 2017).

 

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. To view Free Handicapping Tips and Pick Four selections, just visit losalamitos.com and click on the handicapping link.
