Pick 6 Carryover For Sunday Card At Belmont Park

Sunday’s Pick 6 will be bolstered by a $130,681 carryover as the multi-race wager went unsolved on Saturday at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y.

The $1 Pick 6, implemented at the current 48-day Belmont spring/summer meet, returned $21,780 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.

Saturday’s Pick 6 sequence kicked off in Race 5 when longshot True Palace [No. 6, $37.60] lit up the tote board for a $30,000 tag for owner-trainer Darmindra Dharamjit.

Luis Saez picked up his second win on the card with Bodecream [No. 10, $14.40] for trainer Mike Maker and Repole Stable in a one-mile allowance optional claiming tilt originally scheduled for the turf in Race 6.

Alcools [No. 4, $11.40] prevailed by 3 ½ lengths for trainer Peter Miller with jockey Flavien Prat aboard. The son of Gemologist raced for a $20,000 claiming tag going 6 ½ furlongs over the main track in Race 7.

Race 8 saw Woodslane Farm’s Wolfie’s Dynaghost [No. 3, $10.80] lead gate-to-wire in a 1 1/16-mile allowance optional claiming event moved off the turf for trainer Tom Albertrani. The son of Ghostzapper and half-brother to multiple graded stakes-winner Sadler’s Joy prevailed by two lengths.

Truth Hurts [No. 5, $18.00] won an off-the-turf edition of the $100,000 Perfect Sting Stakes for fillies and mares 4-years-old and upward. The Tonalist filly earned her first stakes triumph and third overall victory for trainer and co-owner Chad Summers. The victory gave Saez his third win of the program.

Closing out the sequence in Race 10, Max Player [No. 5, $25.60] fought gamely down the lane with Dubai World Cup winner Mystic Guide to capture the $400,000 Grade 2 Suburban for Hall of Famer Steve Asmussen with Ricardo Santana, Jr. aboard.

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 in Saratoga Spring, N.Y.

Sunday’s Pick 6 kicks off in Race 5 at 3:02 p.m. Eastern and includes the $100,000 Manila for 3-year-olds over the Widener turf course in Race 9 as well as the $250,000 Grade 2 John A. Nerud  Stakes for 4-year-olds and upward going seven furlongs over the main track in the tenth-race finale. First post on Sunday’s card is 1 p.m. Eastern.
