ELMONT, N.Y. – Saturday’s card at Belmont Park will be bolstered by a Pick 6 carryover of $34,824 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday’s nine-race card.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $331.50 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.
The sequence kicked off in Race 4 with Melting Snow [No. 7, $4.50*] capturing a seven-furlong $40,000 claiming sprint under Dylan Davis for conditioner Ray Handal. The Kendrick Carmouche-piloted Now Showing [No. 5, $12.60] followed with a fifth-out maiden score for a $40,000 tag in Race 5 for trainer John Terranova.
Race 6 saw the Christophe Clement-trained Mondego [No. 4, $3.80*] get up just in time under Joel Rosario to claim his second consecutive victory in a nine-furlong optional claimer on the inner turf, one race before Ruben Silvera guided Captivating Cara [No. 8, $10.20] to a narrow score for trainer Greg DiPrima in Race 7, a $20,000 claiming tilt at one-mile on the main track.
Silvera earned a riding double when he guided the ironically named Marathoner [No. 7, $48] to a six-furlong turf sprint victory in Race 8 for trainer Marya Montoya, guaranteeing the carryover.
The sequence closed out in Race 9 as Cyber Ninja [No. 5, $6.60*] graduated under Jose Ortiz in a 1 3/8-mile inner turf maiden for Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott.
Saturday’s Pick 6 will kick off in Race 5 at 3:03 p.m. Eastern and features the Grade 2, $200,000 Pennine Ridge in Race 9. First post is 1 p.m.
