Churchill: Pick six starts Thurs.


The $2 pick six (races 5-10) is only a race old, and already it looks like it could carry over to the Fri. nite racing card. A total of $19,171 was bet today, adding to a carryover of nearly $20k, meaning the jackpot will be about $30k tomorrow night. The first leg today went to the second-longest shot in a 5-horse race, Western Prospector ($17), who turned away even-money fave Western Smoke while 9-5 second fave Parioli's Trick labored home third.

There are 8 MTP for the second leg, Race 6, and Banner Year (#11) is even-money in a field of 9 on the big drop for Rusty Arnold.
