Belmont Park: $52,382 Carryover In Friday’s Pick 6

The Pick 6 on Friday’s card at Belmont Park will be bolstered by a $52,382 carryover, as the multi-race wager went unsolved on Thursday.

The $1 Pick 6, implemented at the current 48-day Belmont spring/summer meet, returned $431.50 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.

Thursday’s sequence kicked off with Make Or Break [No. 5, $12] winning a one-turn claiming mile for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up in Race 4 under Benjamin Hernandez for trainer Antonio Arriaga.

In Race 5, the 6-5 mutuel favorite Regal Speaker [No. 3, $4.40] proved best in a nine-furlong inner turf allowance for state-breds 3-years-old and up. Irad Ortiz, Jr. engineered the winning trip for trainer Danny Gargan.

Theodora Grace [No. 11, $7.30] captured Race 6, a seven-furlong maiden claimer on the Widener turf for state-bred fillies and mares 3-year-old and up, under Jose Ortiz for conditioner Tom Albertrani. Sent to post as the second choice in the wagering, Theodora Grace got the jump on slow-starting 2-1 mutuel favorite Write This Down [No. 10.]

Flat Awesome Jenny [No. 3, $7.10] collared pacesetter Daria’s Angel in the final jumps to win a one-turn claiming mile for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up in Race 7. Ortiz, Jr. provided the winning ride for trainer Orlando Noda.

Popular New York-bred Robin Sparkles [No. 5, $5.70], sent to post as the 9-5 mutuel favorite, won an open company allowance optional-claimer in frontrunning fashion in Race 8. With Ortiz up for trainer Bruce Brown, Robin Sparkles covered six furlongs on the inner turf in a swift 1:07.14.

With only four horses covered [Nos. 1,7, 8 and 13] in the final leg of the Pick 6, Mazal Eighteen [No. 9, $8.40] scored as the 3-1 mutuel favorite over 6-1 Lemon Taffy [No. 1] in Race 9. Dylan Davis authored the win for trainer Joseph Lee in the seven-furlong maiden claimer on the Widener turf for state-bred fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.

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.

Friday’s Pick 6 kicks off in Race 4 at 2:31 p.m. Eastern in a sequence that features four turf races, including a 1 1/16-mile optional-claimer on the Widener turf for sophomore fillies offering a purse of $92,000. First post on the nine-race card is 1 p.m.
