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


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.
