Achak, entere for a $40,000 claiming price, rallied wide through the stretch to win Friday's fifth race at 8-1, the first upset on a day that began with a pick six carryover.

Achak ($19.20) finished 1 1-4 lengths in front of Indian Firewater, with 2-1 favorite Nextdoorneighbor only third in the field of six. Achak was timed in 1:43.80.

Aside from Achak, the pick six has been largely formful. Favorites won the first two legs - Darlina Ciana ($3.40) and Amazombie ($4.80) - while the sixth race was won by the second choice in the betting, Zazu ($6.20)
