The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) today announced a series of Cross Country Pick 5 wagers that will extend the popular feature to days throughout November when there is thoroughbred racing from both Aqueduct Racetrack and Churchill Downs.

In contrast to previous years when the Cross Country Pick 5 wager ended in October, November will feature 12 Cross Country Pick 5 wagers from the fall meets at Aqueduct Racetrack and Churchill Downs. The wager will return on Sunday, Nov. 8 and end on Sunday, Nov. 29, which is closing day of Churchill’s fall meet.

After this Sunday, the wagers will take place on subsequent days when both tracks are racing. Those Cross Country Pick 5 days will be:

– Thursday, Nov.12 – Sunday, Nov. 15 (four days);
– Thursday, Nov. 19 – Sunday, Nov. 22 (four days); and.
– Friday, Nov. 27 – Sunday, Nov. 29 (three days).

Live coverage will be available with America’s Day at the Races on FOX Sports and MSG Networks. Free Equibase past performances for all Cross Country Pick 5 sequences will be available for download at

The minimum bet for the multi-track, multi-race wager is 50 cents. Every day will feature a mandatory payout of the net pool.

The 2020 fall meet at Aqueduct Racetrack will begin on Friday, November 6 and continue through Sunday, December 6. Highlighted by the 32nd renewal of the Grade 1, $250,000 Cigar Mile on Saturday, December 5, the 18-day fall meet at Aqueduct features 29 stakes, including 11 graded events, worth $3.41 in purses.
