Bowie Race Course, active since 1913, begins its final meeting on Monday, running through July 13.
General Manager Al Karwacki announced last week that the Prince George's County track will have triple wagering on an additional race daily and will host its first simulcast June 8 for the running of the Belmont Stakes.
The pick six, which will cost $1 per wager, also returns for the third through eighth races. The additional triple will be in effect on the fifth race as well as the customary ninth. Post time will be 1 p.m. daily.
The highlight of the Bowie meeting will be the $130,000-added Governor's Cup handicap, a 1 1/8-mile race for 3-year-olds.
Under provisions specified in recently passed racing legislation in Maryland, Bowie will be utilized as a stabling and training center in the future. Its dates will be divided between Pimlico and Laurel.
Pimlico, which will reopen July 15, closed its spring meeting showing gains of 4 percent in the wagering and attendance. Today's $33,050 Mister Diz Handicap, Pimlico's closing feature, was won by Prince Valid. Whoop Up held gamely for second, a nose before Ryburn.
King Leatherbury was the leading trainer at Pimlico with 50 victories and Donald Miller led the riders with 61.
