Heavy favorite Miss Valentine provides Irad Ortiz Jr. with one of his three winners on Sunday's card in the Lottsa Talc.

There were nine winning tickets sold on Sunday’s pick six at Aqueduct, each worth $24,593.

The card began with a two-day carryover of $73,398 and an additional $259,564 was wagered into the pool.

The winning sequence of 2-6-6-5-3-6 consisted of Sheza Classy Lady ($2.60), Adriatic Dream ($7.70), Carrot Thief ($22.80), Best Actor ($9.30), Swiss Tart ($8.20), and Yes It’s Pink ($8.40).

The sequence did not include the $75,000 Lottsa Talc Stakes for New York-bred fillies and mares, which was won by 4-5 favorite Miss Valentine, who despite not changing leads in the stretch was able to run down the pacesetting Jitney by 1 1/4 lengths. It was two lengths back to Lady On the Run, who dwelt at the start.

Miss Valentine, who won for the seventh time in 18 career starts, was one of three winners on the program ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr. She covered six furlongs in 1:11.38 and returned $3.80.

It was one of two winners on the day for trainer Christophe Clement, who also won the nightcap with Yes It’s Ink.

Miss Valentine, a 4-year-old daughter of Afleet Alex, is owned by her breeder Waterville Lake Stables.

After two dark days, racing resumes Wednesday with a nine-race program beginning at 12:30 p.m.
