Reduced Takeout Daily Doubles and Pick 3s!



AUBURN, Wash. (May 2, 2023) – Emerald Downs has announced industry low takeouts on both daily doubles and pick 3s throughout its 52-day season that begins Saturday and continues through Sept. 17.

Daily Doubles featuring a $1 minimum and Pick 3s with a $0.50 minimum will have takeouts of only 10 percent throughout the meet—lowest of any track in North America.

“There are a lot of takeout promotions on Pick 4 and Pick 5 wagers but those are tough to hit,” said Emerald Downs President Phil Ziegler. “We wanted to give the players a better chance to win with a 10 percent takeout on all our Daily Doubles and Pick 3s.”

Saturday’s opening day program begins with a special 1 p.m. post and marks the first time that Emerald Downs has opened on Kentucky Derby day and is the lone day of racing opening weekend. The normal 2 p.m. post is in effect when racing resumes with Saturday and Sunday programs on May 13 and 14.
