Aqueduct carryover at $239K


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - There will be a $239,658 pick-six carryover entering Sunday's card at Aqueduct after the wager went unhit for a third consecutive day.

The carryover was assured when Justin P ($43.80) stormed to victory from last place in Aqueduct's ninth race Saturday. His victory came one race after Pumpkin Shell ($26.80) rallied from last to win the Busanda Stakes for 3-year-old fillies.

The pick-six had gone unhit Thursday and Friday as well. There was a carryover of $91,373 entering Saturday's card. The consolation payout Saturday for 5 of 6 was $3,411.

Conditions for Sunday's card looked to be a little dicey, as a winter storm was expected to come through the area Saturday night, bringing as much as three inches of snow and ice to the area. Light snow fell throughout Saturday's card but did not affect the surface.

The maintenance crew sealed the track down hard following Saturday's nightcap.

Sunday's pick-six was to begin with race 4 (1:55 p.m. Eastern) and include the $65,000 Soft Morning Stakes for New York-bred filly and mare sprinters.
