Saratoga: Pick-6 carryover likely


  Two races into the pick-6, it already looks like we'll have a carryover in the wake of upsets by Settle for Medal (6th, $45.20) and Arcodoro (7th, $90.00).

  Settle for Medal, a second-time starter who was a distant third in his debut vs. Hopeful-bound Boys At Tosconova, saved ground into the stretch, came outside dueling favorites Volcker and Astrology, and wore them down late to get Cornelio Velasquez on the board.

  Arcodoro was turf to dirt after weakening in his first allowance try at Louisiana Downs as the 8-5 favorite. He grabbed the early lead under David Cohen and never looked back. He was the second longshot ship-in winner for trainer Eric Guillot, who sent out Champagne d'Oro to wire the Acorn Stakes at 39-1.
