Aqueduct: $230 winner leads to $99K pick-six carryover


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Thanks in large part to the highest-priced winner on the New York Racing Association circuit in nearly 14 years, there will be a pick-six carryover of $99,787 into Sunday’s card at Aqueduct.

The Sunday sequence will begin with race 4 (1:54 p.m. Eastern) and include the $75,000 Cat Cay Stakes.

There was a $20,827 carryover entering Saturday’s card and an additional $138,579 was wagered into the pool.

Virtually - but not all - tickets were dead after the first leg when Firstbellathenkk, a 114-1 shot, went gate to wire under Julissa Laredo to win and return $230. According to New York Racing Association records, that was the highest-priced winner since Barrier Free returned $338 on Feb. 6, 1999. The carryover was secured after Humorus Dilemma ($20.40) won the sixth race
