Every weekend in racing offers a bevy of action to plunk down your cabbage. You can always bet on having more action than the law allows. This weekend, the game offers some additional action.

If you are a fan of the Magna-5, you are in luck. This wager has five races that begin at 4:49 p.m EST at Laurel and end at 5:34 p.m at Santa Anita. It is a $1 wager, and offers some pretty hefty payoffs. Last week, there were 25 winning $1 tickets worth $12,446.50 each. All of that action packed into an hour…..

If you like guaranteed pools, The Big “A” offers a $250,000 Pick-4 pool to take down. Picking is easy, but winning is optional. If you hit; you’ll get paid. Be sure to include this in your wagering menu, as it looks to have the taste of something sweet.

Pool #1 opens up for The Kentucky Derby Future pool. This is open all weekend long, and closes at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.  This allows you to get in on handsome prices for the runners heading to Louisville. If they don’t make it, you’re out. But, if they do, you can count on having a solid price to chase. The final odds end at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, and if you want more action, just wait until Pool #2 where they will offer exacta wagering. Now, that is a nice way to get paid.

Any way you like it, you can find your direction at WinningPonies.com. This will take out the guesswork, and allow you to use your time wisely; like going to the windows to cash.
