Aqueduct: Pick six carryover of $72,676 for Thursday


Although five horses were covered heading into the last leg of Wednesday’s pick six at Aqueduct, the favorite was not among them. So, when lukewarm choice The Blonde Peque ($8.60) took the finale as the second winner on the day for trainer Christophe Clement and the third for jockey Joel Rosario, the result was a two-day carryover of $72,676 into Thursday.

Many tickets stayed alive through the first four races, wins by Gloria Victoria ($3.20), Secretive ($10.20), Summer Solo ($6.80), and Garmentos Girl ($14).

Things grew more complicated in race 8, where 4-1 second choice Merry Meadow was disqualified and placed third after putting 1-2 shot Ultimate Shopper in tight along the rail in the stretch. Thus, second finisher My Place ($28.20) was awarded the victory.

Other than The Blonde Peque, the other five horses held at single-digit odds in the last race – Poster Girl, Pleasant Cat, Atlantic Dream, Cat’s Claw, and Zamquick – were covered.

Thursday’s pick six begins with race 4 at 1:47 p.m. Eastern.
