Saratoga: $100k pick-6 guarantee barely met


  Today's pick-6 pool was $108,516, barely surpassing the $100k guarantee. That's probably because a lot of players are still licking their wounfs after chasing the two-day carryover of $210k into yesterday's card.

  So far, I've scratched into the first two winners: Thunder Jewel (4th, $9.90), who scored handily after a ground-saving trip; and Mardi Belle (5th, $6.00), who added blinkers and benefited from the scratch of 3-5 ML favorite My Two Cents to wire New York-bred maiden claimers.
