Meadowlands Survivor Wager
The Pick 10 Survivor is a specialty wager available exclusively at The Meadowlands. The Pick 10 Survivor requires you to select the winner of the first 10 races on the program that day. It is a single-elimination wager meaning only tickets with the winning horse in race 1 will be in competition in race 2, and only tickets with the winnings horse in race 2 will be considered in race 3, and so on. This continues until there is only 1 correct ticket or if all 10 races have been completed. If multiple players "survive" all 10 races, they will evenly split the winnings pool.
The key twist with the Pick 10 Survivor is that you don't necessarily need to have 10 out of 10 correct to take home the jackpot. You just need to "survive" by selecting the winner in the most consecutive races until you are the last person standing with a live ticket.
This is a Pick 5 that occurs over tracks owned specifically by Stronach Group; including Laurel Park, Gulfstream, Santa Anita, and Golden Gate Fields. The wager has its own tracklisting, which appears online as "Stronach 5".
The minimum wager will be $1. If there is no 5 out of 5 winner, the entire pool will carry over to the following Friday as there is no consolation payout for finishing with 4 correct out of 5. Scratched runners will go to the post-time favorite unless a race had a surface change, in which case it will be an all-win.

Fortune 6 / Jackpot Pick 6
A Fortune 6 or Jackpot Pick 6 is a Pick 6 with a slight twist from the traditional Pick 6 wagers. Just like in the Pick 6 you must pick the winner of 6 consecutive races. However, unlike the standard Pick 6, a Fortune 6 only pays out when there is one specific winning ticket.
In a standard Pick 6, it is not uncommon for more than one player to have all six horses on a ticket. When this happens the standard Pick 6 pool is split among those who hold winning tickets. With the Fortune 6, if more than one player correctly picks all six horses, a consolation payout is made and the majority of the betting pool carries over to the next racing day. These Fortune/Jackpot 6 wagers often have slightly different names that vary from track to track.
Examples: at Gulfstream Park, it is called the Rainbow 6, at NYRA tracks it's the Empire 6, and at Remington Park, they have the Sooner 6ix. These wagers have a minimum/maximum wager amount, which is typically $.20 cents.
The Jockey 7 is a specialty wager at Kentucky Downs. Players bet on jockey's mounts over 7 races. They can bet Win, Place, Show, Exacta, and Trifecta. Results are based on a points system for the jockey's finish in each race. The wager has its own tracklisting, which appears online as "Kentucky Downs Jockey 7". It is, unfortunately, not available in our automated telephone wagering system.
First place finishes earn 25 points, 2nd place earn 12 points, 3rd place earns 9 points, and 4th place earns 5 points. Please note, late scratches will receive 1 point.
