Aqueduct: Pick six bettor invests $27,300 to hit for $333,055

Email

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - There was one winning ticket sold on Friday’s pick six at Aqueduct, returning $333,055. The winning ticket was played through the Elite Turf Club advance-deposit wagering platform, and the bettor invested approximately $27,300, according to the New York Racing Association.

There was a two-day carryover of $105,348 after no winning tickets were sold on the pick six last Sunday and Monday. An additional $399,499 was wagered into the pool on Friday.

The sequence started off logically enough as even-money favorite Star Magnolia ($4.30) ran off to a 12 1/4-length victory in the first leg, followed by second choice Your Time is Up ($7.20) winning the second leg. Winter Games ($26.80) ruined a lot of tickets in leg 3 and, after Bileaps and Bounds ($8.20) won the seventh race, most of the remaining pick six tickets were eliminated when Make the Moment ($19) rallied from last to win the eighth race.

 Entering the final leg, there was only one live ticket to Insighting and Pegasus Tiger, both 2-1 shots at post-time. Insighting ($6.80) had to work hard to get past Wood On the Fire, but eventually prevailed in the stretch under leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr.

The track loves P6 carryovers,as they take 25% off the top. I had a friend at Arlington Park in Chicago,who gave me the best advice I ever got at the track. "Bet a little to make a lot".

When you throw enough s... against a wall - some of it sticks. The objective is to "win" ; nothing else matters. If a person or group of people enter and own all the horses in the Kentucky Derby they will win. Maybe the purists dislike both the pick 6 result and my Ky. Derby analogy, but that is what reality is all about.

The only one getting rich off all these huge payoffs is the tax man. IRS robbing players blind

Geezus, have another sip of Hatorade. The guy put up the money, and had the stones to do so. Good for him. It could have been a group of people pooling money, who knows and who cares. Keep up the negative energy people, its why you are miserable.

Sure, it takes skill and luck to win a $333,055 P-6 with $27,300.... ...but it takes a H of a lot more skill and luck to win it with $72 or even $1,000. At 27 grand, you can construct a 3x3x4x4x5x5 ticket and use only about a quarter of your bankroll. You can buy A LOT of coverage for what this guy spent, and--with halfway decent handicapping and (obviously) a multi-ticket strategy, you SHOULD have a decent shot at it So while it's a very nice score and a decent ROI, it's no great feat!

Netting over 300K is a great feat. Period. Another ridiculous post. If you think its that easy to hit for that much on a PK 6 carryover, you should have no problem convincing people to invest in your genius handicapping skills and taking down a huge pool.

I hit one last year that paid 5600 with 48 doller ticket. Thats over 100/1 .This guy hits 300k with 27 k .Thats 11/1 on his investment.Betting large sums does'nt make a guy abetter handicapper.It just means you'll make bigger scores and suffer bigger losses.

The whole idea is to win money, not to be a better handicapper than someone.

All gambling is about making money(some ego)It is about being a better handicapper since its paramutuel.

Just because you put 27k towards a p6 ticket doesn't mean you are guaranteed anything. It could've ended up all favorites and the result was a big loss. Congrats on having the guts to put down the money and having the good luck to hit some prices for the payoff.

Also, at midstretch, it was neck and neck with the #1 horse, if I recall correctly fighting grudgingly, and Irad finally put that horse away after the 1/16 pole, so, 2,000 0r 20,000, the sweating it out, blood pressure and nerves are equal, I'm sure...

Affirming the 'Sport-of-Kings' .. if you're a 'GELDING' don't BET. The rules would significantly change having a 'BIG-PAIR'. Super duper JOB $$$ Jersey Skip

I looked long and hard at this today, I couldnt make the 6th race any less than 5 deep and I hated both Pletcher horses I also wanted to single Bileaps and Bounds in the 7th. Ultimately I passed it....just couldnt pull the trigger because Pletcher has burned me so often and Hertler on a single I must be insane.....had Make the Moment a C anyway so cant really think I woulda hit....one of those days where I'm looking at a piece of paper that has all 6 winners on it but its notebook paper not a tote ticket
