Pick 6 carryover of $54K into Saturday’s card at Belmont Park

July 10, 2021

ELMONT, N.Y. – Saturday’s Pick 6 will be bolstered by a $54,191 carryover as the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday at Belmont Park. 

The $1 Pick 6, implemented at the current 48-day Belmont spring/summer meet, returned $433 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.

Friday’s Pick 6 sequence kicked off in Race 4 as Bourbon’s Hope [No. 1, $11.60] graduated at first asking in a 5 1/2-furlong maiden special weight for New York-bred juveniles. Joel Rosario engineered the winning trip for trainer Charlton Baker.

Jose Lezcano captured the next two legs with April Antics [No. 9, $6] scoring in Race 5 in a state-bred maiden claiming sprint for conditioner James Ryerson and Dreams of Tomorrow [No. 8, $4.60] proving to be much the best for Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey in an off-the-turf optional-claiming mile in Race 6.

Three Jokers [No. 2, $7.30], with Jose Ortiz up, captured a 1 1/16-mile state-bred optional-claiming event in Race 7 ahead of the day’s biggest upset when Dancingwthdaffodls [No. 7, $46.20] rallied down the center of the track under Dylan Davis in Race 8 to win an off-the-turf optional claiming event for conditioner Eduardo Jones.

With the Pick 6 carryover already secured, Giggle Factory [No. 9, $9.90] took command past the furlong marker to win the off-the-turf nightcap by open lengths in a one-turn mile claimer for jockey Junior Alvarado and trainer Tom Albertrani.

Featuring a $1 bet minimum and 15 percent takeout, the Pick 6 wager requires bettors to select the first-place finisher of six designated races on the card. A total of 75 percent of the full pool, minus takeout, will be distributed to bettors who select the first-place finisher of all six races. A consolation payout of 25 percent of the net pool will be distributed to tickets selecting 5-of-6 winners.

In the event there are no tickets with six winners, there will be a carryover of 75 percent of the net pool into the next day of the meet with the remaining 25 percent of the net pool distributed as a consolation payout to tickets selecting the first-place finisher in the greatest number of races on the card. On carryover days, the Pick 6 is offered with a 24 percent takeout.

The $1 Pick 6 replaced the Empire 6, a jackpot style wager featuring a $0.20 bet minimum first offered in August 2019 at Saratoga Race Course.

Saturday’s Pick 6 kicks off in Race 6 at 3:34 p.m. Eastern and includes the Grade 1, $700,000 Belmont Oaks Invitational in Race 7; the Grade 3, $150,000 Victory Ride in Race 8; and the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Derby Invitational in Race 9. First post on Saturday’s 11-race card is 1 p.m. Eastern.
