OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Friday’s Pick 6 will be bolstered by a $73,574 carryover as the multi-race wager went unsolved on Sunday at Aqueduct Racetrack.
The $1 Pick 6 returned $1,021.50 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.
Sunday’s sequence kicked off in Race 5 with Goodnight Olive [No. 6, $2.60]posting an impressive maiden score under meet-leading rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. for meet-leading trainer Chad Brown. Goodnight Olive was the first of three winning favorites in the sequence.
Sterling Silver [No. 11, $36.40], with Trevor McCarthy up for Tom Albertrani, upset Race 7 – a six-furlong state-bred maiden sprint which was followed by Miss J McKay [No. 1, $15.20], piloted by Dylan Davis for Christophe Clement, overtaking Gotta Go Mo to capture a six-furlong allowance optional-claiming tilt in Race 7 over the outer turf.
Public Information [No. 1, $7.50] scored as the lukewarm choice in Race 8, a 1 1/16-mile starter allowance over the inner turf, under a sharp ride by Luis Saez for trainer Mike Maker. Classy Edition [No. 6, $3.90] kept her perfect record intact with a wide-rallying score in the Key Cents, a six-furlong sprint for state-bred juvenile fillies. Ortiz, Jr. engineered the confident score aboard the mutuel favorite for Hall of Fame trainer Todd Pletcher.
With only four horses covered in the finale – Partner’s Hope [No. 2], My Boy Colton [No. 6], Boom Boom Kaboom [No. 9] and Rogers Ginger [No. 10] – it was 20-1 longshot Chase the Cat [No. 12, $42.80], who took the lead at the stretch call and staved off Partner’s Hope by a half-length to secure the carryover. Benjamin Hernandez piloted the winner for trainer Gary Sciacca.
Friday’s Pick 6 kicks off in Race 5 at 1:45 p.m. Eastern and will include the $150,000 Gio Ponti at 1 1/16-miles on turf for sophomores and the Grade 3, $200,000 Comely at nine furlongs on the main track for sophomore fillies. First post on the 10-race card is 11:50 a.m.
