Belmont Park: Smokin Hero's victory creates carryover possibilities


Smokin Hero's resurgent head victory over Spa City Fever in the $60,000 Noble Nashua created a few carryover possibilities in the pick-six. If the 3,8,9,10 or 11 win there will be a $600,904 carryover into Wednesday's card.

 All other numbers are covered with the pick-six paying $26,080 should English Ivy (#2) win or $37,509 should Saint Kitten (the #12) and current 2-1 favorite win.

 Smokin Hero acted up at the gate and needed to be resaddled and reared up at least twice during the process. Smokin Hero won after dueling for the lead, dropping back to fourth and coming on again to nip Spa City Fever at the wire.

Naughty New Yorker, the 9-year-old millionare horse making his first start since last September, finished fifth, beaten 14 lengths.
