Golden Gate Fields Will Offer $75,000 Guaranteed All Grass Late Pick 4 Sunday

    

    Golden Gate Fields will present handicappers with an interesting challenge on Sunday’s closing day program – a guaranteed $75,000 all grass late Pick 4.
 
     Post time Sunday is 1:15 p.m. and the late Pick 4 will be held on races seven through 10.  It only costs 50 cents to play the late Pick 4 and Golden Gate Fields is guaranteeing that the pool for the bet will be worth at least $75,000.

     Punters have to correctly select the winners of all four races to hit the Pick 4, and the ability to handicap grass races will be the key to success Sunday as races seven through 10 are all on the Lakeside Turf Course.

     Handicappers will have to study the past performances of 36 horses if playing the Pick 4 as there are eight entrants in the seventh race, 10 in the eighth, nine in the ninth, and nine in the 10th.
     
     Races seven through nine are all 1 1/16-mile events.  The seventh race is for
3-year-old maidens entered for a claiming price of $20,000-$18,000.  The eighth race is a $6,250 claiming event for fillies and mares while the ninth is a starter allowance event for distaffers.  

     The 10th race is a five-furlong dash for 3-year-olds and up entered for a claiming price of $16,000-$14,000.

     Post time for the start of the all grass Pick 4 is approximately 4:25 p.m.

     Sunday, in addition to being closing day, is Dollar Day at Golden Gate Fields with the track offering $1 general parking, $1 general admission, $1 programs, $1 hot dogs, $1 beers, and $1 sodas.  The popular Bay Area band Tainted Love will perform on the Trackside Stage between races.
