OZONE PARK, N.Y. — Thursday’s eight-race card at Aqueduct Racetrack will feature a Pick 6 carryover of $27,814 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Sunday’s nine-race card.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $178.25 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 horses correctly.
The sequence kicked off in Race 4 with the Linda Rice-trained Naked and Famous [No. 5, $10] graduating for a $20,000 tag under Jose Lezcano. Jockey Manny Franco scored his second of two wins on the card in impressive fashion aboard Asset Purchase [No. 4, $8.80], who graduated at first asking by eight lengths for four-time Eclipse Award-winning trainer Chad Brown in Race 5.
Jose Gomez, who was recently named the 2022 Outstanding Apprentice Jockey at the Eclipse Awards, engineered a winning ride aboard the Rudy Rodriguez-trained Beautiful Karen [No. 4, $9.80] in Race 6, one race before Big Tony’s Girl [No. 8, $14.40] provided the biggest upset in the sequence with Kendrick Carmouche up for trainer Jim Ryerson in Race 7.
Race 8 saw both Rice and Carmouche earn their second wins on the card as Tonal Impact [No. 1, $3.30*] rallied to a 4 1/2-length allowance score for the sixth victory of his career.
Kitten’s Appeal [No. 5], the only horse covered in the final leg in Race 9, battled gamely down the lane but could not overtake the Lezcano-piloted Hot Fudge [No. 11, $8.60], who gave Rice a third win on the day to trigger the carryover.
Thursday’s Pick 6 sequence begins in Race 3 [1:50 p.m. Eastern]. First post is 12:50 p.m.
