Pick 6 Carryover Of $61,085 Thursday At Belmont Park

Thursday’s Pick 6 will be boosted by a $61,085 carryover, as the multi-race wager went unsolved on Sunday at Belmont Park.

The $1 Pick 6, which launched on Thursday, Opening Day of the 48-day Belmont spring/summer meet, returned $1,131 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly.

Sunday’s sequence kicked off in Race 4 when Eric Cancel guided Patty O’Marc [No. 8, $29.80] to an upset score for trainer Linda Rice in a one-mile maiden claiming tilt contested on a sloppy Belmont main track.

Win With Pride [No. 8, $12.40] provided jockey Joel Rosario his first of three winners on the nine-race card in a six-furlong claiming sprint for trainer Orlando Noda in Race 5.

Rosario doubled up in Race 6, a 1 1/16-mile maiden special weight, by guiding Spungie [No. 2, $4] to a popular win for Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott.

Summer Brew [No. 4, $16.80] provided another double digit payout by besting Bankers Daughter in a six-furlong allowance sprint in Race 7. Manny Franco engineered the score for Jorge Abreu.

In the penultimate leg, Midnight Obsession [No. 3, $26.80] kicked into gear late to collar Iced Latte in a 1 1/16-mile allowance optional claiming event. With Trevor McCarthy up, Midnight Obsession reaped the benefits of a pace battle between favored Teetotaler and a game Iced Latte.

Funny Bones Flag [No. 8, $6. 10] completed the hat trick for Rosario with a prominent score to close out the sequence in a one-turn mile claiming event for trainer Charlton Baker.

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.

Thursday’s Pick 6 will begin in Race 4 at Belmont, a six-furlong claiming sprint, with a post time of 2:33 p.m. Eastern. The sequence offers four turf races, including a 10-furlong $94,000 allowance optional-claiming event in Race 8. First post on Thursday’s nine-race card is 1 p.m.
