          After a day off to celebrate the Christmas holiday, the Chicago racing circuit gets back in action on Thursday, Dec. 26th  and the 10 cent Pick 6 wager at Maywood Park could give players a chance to make a nice score heading into the New Year.

          The 10 cent wager went unclaimed last Thursday, (Dec. 19) & Friday, (Dec. 20th) so there will be a two-day carryover of $2,789 for tonight’s action.  

          With the help of Maywood Park management and the United States Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Initiative, Maywood Park will offer a guaranteed Pick 6 pool of $7,500 on Thursday, Dec. 26th.

           Once again the Pick 6 can be played for as little as a .10 cent investment giving all gamblers, regardless of the size of the their bankrolls, a chance to play for a nice payday tonight. There will also be a $7,500 guaranteed Pick 4 pool on races 10-13 this evening.  

           Handicappers across North America can get a head start on their competition with free 12 line program pages for the guaranteed pools courtesy of the USTA Strategic Wagering Initiative and Track Master on the handicapping section at

          Post time for the opener on Thursday, Dec. 26th at Maywood Park is 7:10 p.m. (central) and the fifth race, which kicks off the guaranteed pool action in the Pick 6, is expected to go sometime around 8:30 p.m. (central).
