OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Saturday’s card at Aqueduct Racetrack will feature a Pick 6 carryover of $35,164 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday’s nine-race program. 

The $1 Pick 6 returned $11,721.50 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly. 

The sequence kicked off in Race 4 with the Jesus Romero-trained Hang Tight [No. 3, $61] upsetting a nine-furlong claiming tilt with Luis Rivera, Jr. aboard. The Chad Brown-trained Nikitis [No. 1, $6] followed in Race 5 with a narrow graduation over Curlin’s Girl in a seven-furlong maiden special weight with Manny Franco up. 

Race 6 saw the Isaac Castillo-piloted My Man Matty [No. 5, $15] capture a six-furlong state-bred allowance for trainer Bruce Levine, one race before Heman Harkie guided Blu Grotto [No. 10, $6.70*] back to the winner’s circle for conditioner Rudy Rodriguez in a one-mile claimer.

The Linda Rice-trained Hot Fudge [No. 5, $5.20*] lived up to her 8-5 favoritism in Race 8 when taking a one-mile optional claimer for fillies and mares with Jose Lezcano at the helm. 

With just one horse covered in the final leg, the Robert Klesaris-trained Flight Control [No. 7, $75.50] posted the biggest upset in the sequence when graduating on debut in Race 9, a six-furlong maiden for state-bred juvenile fillies, with Eliseo Ruiz in the irons.
