Aqueduct: Pick six carryover at $73K for Wood Memorial card


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - If you didn’t hit the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park on Friday, there is another chance to hit a healthy pick six Saturday at Aqueduct.

When Silver Mast ($28.60) held off favored Stock Fund - who stumbled at the quarter pole - in Friday’s nightcap, it triggered a two-day pick six carryover of $73,432 into Saturday’s Wood Memorial card.

With there being 12 races on Saturday, the pick six will begin with race 7 (4:04 p.m. Eastern). It starts with a New York-bred allowance on the turf and includes the Gazelle, Bay Shore, Carter, Wood Memorial, and a $12,500 claiming race.

In Friday’s ninth race, there was an accident when Miz Owell, approaching the quarter pole, ducked in sharply and crashed through the rail, unseating apprentice jockey Pierre Tomas.

Tomas was taken off the course on a stretcher and transported to Jamaica Hospital.

Miz Owell crashed through a second rail but was quickly apprehended by an outrider and did not appear to be injured.
