Play the New "Black Gold 5" and Strike It Rich!

Fair Grounds has added a new daily jackpot carryover wager to its offerings for the 140th Thoroughbred Racing Season. The Black Gold 5 requires a bettor to hold the lone successful ticket with the winners of five consecutive races. On cards when there is no single-ticket winner, half of the pool is paid as consolation to tickets with the most correct and half of the pool goes to the carryover. The Black Gold 5 carries a $.50 minimum and starts on Race 5 every day.
