WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Canada, July 31, 2022 - The 74th running of the $100,000 Manitoba Derby will go to post on Monday, August 1. The race drew a field of eight highly competitive 3-year-olds going the distance of a mile and an eighth.
Monday’s program will also include the $50,000 Harvey Warner Manitoba Mile Stakes and the $50,000 Escape Clause Stakes.
In addition to the feature races, players will have a crack at the ASD Jackpot Pick 5 pool, which has not been won yet this year and is set to be a mandatory payout that night.
The jackpot is $515,683 going into Monday’s program and the final pool is estimated to be well in excess of $1 million. It is set to be a huge windfall for players who are able to correctly select the winner of the last five races of the program. Tickets are only 20 cents each.
“This year’s Manitoba Derby program is set to be a fantastic night for everyone,” said CEO Darren Dunn. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to have our feature event framed by the largest mandatory payout in the track’s history!”
The program will also include a $100,000 guaranteed Pick 4 pool. Betting information can be found on the free Player Portal site at ASDowns.com/player-portal.
