While plans for a harness meet at the Jackson Fairgrounds this year did not materialize, plans are still in place for a meet to take place in 2015. The MGCB will announce if Jackson Raceway will get a license in November.
Saturday night is Cal Expo's opening night. New this year is a dime Pick-6 with a twist. The jackpot is paid out only if there is one winner; otherwise the jackpost is rolled over to the next racing program. The wager starts with the third race. Other low cost wagers are the 50-cent Pick Five (starting with the first race), 20-cent Pick Four (races 10 to 13) with a $20,000 guaranteed pool, and the 10-cent Super Hi-Five in the final race.
