SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Sunday’s Pick 6 will be bolstered by a $257,811 carryover as the multi-race wager went unsolved on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $1,014 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.
Saturday’s sequence kicked off in Race 6 with Midnight Worker [No. 1, $22.20]graduating at first asking under Luis Saez for Hall of Fame trainer Todd Pletcher in a six-furlong maiden event for 2-year-olds.

Caramel Swirl [No. 6, $4.30] won as the post-time favorite in Race 9, capturing the seven-furlong allowance with a perfect trip from Junior Alvarado for Hall of Fame conditioner Bill Mott.
