Aqueduct inner track opens with $123,347 pick six carryover


There will be a pick six carryover of $123,347 at Aqueduct on Wednesday when the inner track opens for the winter season.

The pick six went unhit on both Saturday and Sunday, the final two days of the main track meet. Since the state does recognize Sunday as the official end of the fall meet, the wager is permitted to carry over. The state recognizes the official end of Aqueduct’s fall meet as Dec. 31.

There were no winning favorites in Sunday’s sequence and it was first-time starter Cards of Stone, a 38-1 shot who returned $79 in race 6, who basically busted all pick six tickets. Other winners in the sequence were Browse ($21.20), Bullheaded Boy ($11.60), St. Louie ($14.40), Rectify ($7.80), and Light Years Away ($62.50).

Those who selected four of six winners received a payout of $1,363.

Though racing moves to the inner track on Wednesday, the schedule basically remains the same. First post is 12:20 p.m. Eastern. The pick six sequence begins with race 4 (1:50 p.m.) and will consist of all dirt races as the turf season has come to a close.

Though he got blanked on Sunday’s card, Irad Ortiz Jr. was the leading rider for the main track meet with 30 wins, five more than his brother Jose, who won three races on Sunday. Kendrick Carmouche, who rode Cards of Stone to victory, tied Javier Castellano for third with 20 wins apiece.

Rudy Rodriguez finished the main track season as the leading trainer with 15 wins, one more than Chad Brown.

Michael Dubb was leading owner with 12 wins.
