When live racing resumes at Laurel Park Dec. 1, there will be carryovers in two jackpot plays, the 20-cent Rainbow 6 and the $1 Super Hi-5 wagers. The Dec. 1 card will feature nine races.
After no one had all six winners in the Rainbow 6 Nov. 26, that jackpot carryover increased to $8,636.79. Tickets with five of six winners were worth $899.58. Rainbow 6 spans Races 4-9.
The Super High-5 carryover of $1,855.30 will be available in the Dec. 1 opener, a $40,000 maiden special weight for 2-year-olds racing 1 1/16 miles on Laurel's main track. The Super High-5 requires bettors to pick the order of finish for the first five horses.
Dec. 2 is "Give a gift, get a gift" day at Laurel. Patrons who bring a new, unwrapped toy (no stuffed animals please) will receive a gift from Laurel Park. Donations will be distributed through the Maryland Horsemen's Assistance Foundation. Live racing at Laurel will be Friday through Monday with a post time of 12:30 p.m.
And for those pondering their own gift-giving for family and friends, tickets for the 143rd Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course May 19 are currently on sale. The day before the Preakness, Pimlico will run the 94th edition of Black-Eyed Susan Day. For ticket and package information, visit preakness.com/tickets/seating-information.
