OZONE PARK, N.Y.— Saturday’s nine-race card at Aqueduct Racetrack will feature a Pick 6 carryover of $22,611 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday’s eight-race program. With Saturday’s card marking the final day of racing action in 2022, all pools will be forced out.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $502 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.
Friday’s sequence kicked off in Race 3 with the favored Provision [No. 3, $7.10*] battling doggedly to the wire to score in a one-mile maiden claimer under Manny Franco for trainer George Weaver.
Pirate Rick [No. 1, $33.80] upset an optional-claiming sprint for 3-year-olds and up in Race 4 with apprentice Jose Gomez in the irons for trainer Norman Cash. The regally-bred Frost Point [No. 3, $6.70*], by Frosted and out of Grade 1-winning millionaire Balletto, prevailed as the favorite in Race 5 with Jose Lezcano up for Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott.
Group 3-winner Meraas [No. 7, $10.80] rocketed gate-to-wire to capture a six-furlong optional-claiming sprint in Race 6 under Abner Adorno for conditioner Chad Summers before multiple graded-stakes winning millionaire Drafted [No. 3, $14] nosed out Little Vic to win the featured Gravesend in Race 7.
With only two horses covered in the Race 8 finale, a one-mile claiming tilt for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up, Jerusalema [No. 11, $10] drew off to trigger the carryover.
Saturday’s Pick 6 sequence begins in Race 4 [1:46 p.m. Eastern] and features the $150,000 Queens County in Race 8. First post is 12:20 p.m.
