NYRA Press Release
OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Saturday’s 10-race program will be bolstered by a Pick 6 carryover of $24,924 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday’s nine-race card.

The sequence began in Race 4 with jockey Manny Franco posting the second of his six wins on the card, guiding Quick Chaos [No. 7, $12.20] to victory in a state-bred maiden special weight for conditioner Jorge Abreu.
Franco then guided Vallarand [No. 4, $4.70*] to score a $25,000 claiming victory in Race 5 for trainer Rob Atras before another win in Race 6 aboard Baron’s Legacy [No. 6, $18.80] to provide trainer Horacio De Paz with a state-bred maiden claiming win.
Race 7 saw Six Percent [No. 8, $16.20] pounce to victory under Dylan Davis for conditioner Jeremiah Englehart in a state-bred allowance optional claimer.
Franco returned to the winner’s circle again in Race 8 aboard Kant Hurry Love [No. 3, $6.60] for trainer Christophe Clement before earning his sixth win on the card in Race 9 aboard the Antonio Arriaga-trained Bourbon Calling [No. 10, $13.40] to trigger the carryover.
