Bettors chasing Wednesday’s two-day pick 6 carryover of $89,489 found it to be easy pickings early and tough sledding late.

Praetorian Guard ($5.80) and Sportswriter ($2.40) kept most tickets alive through the first two legs, followed by the harder-to-have Star Black ($22.80), Royal Sighting ($9.10) and What’s the Record ($8.50). But the missing link was Noosh’s Tale ($111.50), who rallied from off the pace under apprentice Keiber Coa to win the finale.

The winning combination of 8-2-3-4-9-2 paid $126,543; the 5 of 6 consolation paid $395.

Oddly enough, Noosh’s Tale was only the second highest-priced winner on the card, behind My Four Rewards, who paid $142.50 in race 2.
