OZONE PARK, N.Y.— Saturday’s card at Aqueduct Racetrack will be bolstered by a Pick 6 carryover of $25,000.86 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday’s eight-race card.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $1,471.50 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.
The sequence kicked off in Race 3 as Manny Franco piloted Curbstone [No. 6, $3.50*] to a 4 1/4-length victory for trainer Tom Morley and owner/breeder Patricia Moseley.
Trevor McCarthy piloted the Peter Walder-trained Its Cold in Dehere [No. 4, $14.80] to a rallying score in Race 4 – a one-turn mile $20,000 claimer for older fillies and mares.
Robert Gorham, Jr.’s Swifty Devil [No. 1, $19.20] earned a second career conquest for trainer Michael Gorham in Race 5, a six-furlong starter optional claimer. Eric Cancel was aboard for the journey.
Anthony Fontana’s Cupids Girl [No. 7, $8.90], trained by James Ryerson, earned her first triumph against winners in Race 6, a seven-furlong starter allowance for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up. Jose Lezcano piloted the daughter of Cupid.
In Race 7, a one-turn mile allowance optional claimer for sophomore New York-breds, Ruben Silvera piloted Kerness [No. 3, $16.40] to victory for trainer Jamie Ness, who co-owns the son of Laoban with Morris E. Kernan, Jr.
With only one horse covered in the final leg, AB Racing and Crown Stable’s Warrior Richard [No. 2, $9.50] triggered the carryover in Race 8 with a rail-skimming victory under Jaime Torres for trainer Robert Falcone, Jr.
Saturday’s Pick 6 will kick off in Race 4 at 2:52 p.m. Eastern and features the $125,000 Excelsior in Race 8. First post on the nine-race card is 1:20 p.m.
