Meadowlands Survivor Wager
The Pick 10 Survivor is a specialty wager available at The Meadowlands where you must select the winner of the first 10 races on the program. It is a single-elimination wager, so only tickets with the winning horse in race 1 will be considered in race 2, only tickets with the winnings horse in race 2 will be considered in race 3, and so forth. This continues until there is only 1 correct ticket ("the survivor" or all 10 races have been completed. If multiple players "survive" all 10 races, they split the pool.
The key twist here is that you don't necessarily need to have 10 out of 10 to take home the jackpot. You just need "survive" by selecting the winner in the most consecutive races until you are the last person standing with a live ticket. Theoretically, you could be the only person to pick the winning horse in race 1 and instantly win the jackpot.
This is a Pick 5 occurring over tracks owned by Stronach Group; including Laurel Park, Gulfstream, Santa Anita, and Golden Gate Fields. The wager has its own track listing, which appears online as "Stronach 5" and is available in our automated telephone wagering system with the track code 462.
The minimum wager will be $1. If there is no 5 out of 5, the entire pool will carry over to the following Friday (no 4 out of 5 consolation payout). 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 or Jackpot Pick 6 is a Pick 6 with a twist. 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 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 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 wagers often have slightly different names, depending on the track. For example; 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, 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 track listing, which appears online as "Kentucky Downs Jockey 7". It is not available in our automated telephone wagering system.
First place finishes earn 25 points, 2nd place is 12, 3rd is 9, and 4th is 5. Late scratches get 1 point.
