The Thursday card at the Belmont at the Big A fall meet will be bolstered by a double Pick 6 carryover of $159,032.18 after the multi-race wager went unsolved for the second consecutive card on Sunday’s nine-race program.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $138.25 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.
The sequence started in Race 4 with Hall of Fame jockey Javier Castellano guiding Big Agenda [No. 6, $8.70] to a $25,000 claiming score for trainer Joe Sharp. Castellano completed a riding double in Race 5 as Cupid’s Heart [No. 5, $3.10*] was an easy winner of the state-bred optional claimer for conditioner Bruce Levine.
The Mike Maker-trained New York-bred Run Curtis Run [No. 5, $8] overcame a compromised start in the Carle Place [Race 6] to earn his second lifetime stakes victory under expert handling from Jose Ortiz. Apprentice rider Jose Gomez scored his first of two wins on the day in Race 7 aboard Masked Marauder [No. 1, $7.50] for trainer Rudy Rodriguez in a $25,000 claiming sprint.
Gomez then guided the Natalia Lynch trainee Road to Remember [No. 10, $60] to upset a state-bred allowance sprinting six furlongs over the outer turf at odds of 29-1.
With only four horses covered in the final leg, Pebble Lane [No. 3X, $14] triggered the carryover with a gutsy re-rallying score in a $40,000 state-bred maiden claimer [Race 9] under Dylan Davis for trainer Rick Schosberg.
Thursday’s Pick 6 sequence will begin in Race 4 [2:12 p.m. Eastern] on the nine-race card. First post is 12:35 p.m.
