OZONE PARK, N.Y.— Saturday’s loaded 10-race program will be bolstered by a Pick 6 carryover of $50,012 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday’s nine-race card.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $2,778 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.
The sequence began in Race 4 with the Mike Maker-trained Lashara [No. 4, $14] scoring a second-level optional claimer traveling one mile on the inner turf under Trevor McCarthy. The prices continued in Race 5 when Eric Cancel guided Three Unions [No. 7, $24] to a maiden-breaking score sprinting six furlongs over the outer turf for trainer Rick Schosberg.
Jockey Dylan Davis scored his second win on the program when engineering a winning ride aboard Gagliano [No. 4, $9.40] for trainer Oscar Barrera, III in Race 6, a one-mile $25,000 claimer. Trainer Fernando Abreu enjoyed his first of two wins on the day when Jose Ortiz piloted Royal Megan [No. 5, $6.40] to a $32,000 claiming score in Race 7.
Implicated [No. 2, $9.10] led a Chad Brown-trained exacta in Race 8, the featured $120,000 Chelsey Flower, under a well-timed ride from Flavien Prat to score her first stakes victory.
With only three horses covered in the final leg, Three Zero [No. 12, $37] triggered the carryover in Race 9 with a strong maiden score to give both apprentice rider Jose Gomez and trainer Fernando Abreu their second wins of the day.
Saturday’s Pick 6 sequence will begin in Race 5 [2:44 p.m. Eastern], the Grade 2 Kelso Handicap at one mile over the main track. The sequence will include two other stakes races with the Pumpkin Pie in Race 8 and Grade 3 Bold Ruler in Race 9. First post is 12:35 p.m.
