Belmont Park pick-six carryover $485K into Friday


ELMONT, N.Y. - Another day, another pick-six carryover at Belmont Park.

For a third consecutive card, the pick six was not hit at Belmont Thursday, creating a carryover of $485,964 into Friday’s program.

There are 10 races on Friday’s card, so the pick six does not begin until race 5 (2:58 p.m. Eastern). Five of the six races in the sequence are scheduled for the turf. There is no rain in the forecast so the turf should be firm.

There was a carryover of $165,205 entering Thursday’s card and an additional $562,787 was wagered into the pool.

Many tickets were dead immediately when Seven Dreams ($37.80) upset the fourth race. Favorites won the next two legs - Ultimate Shopper ($5.80) and Dance With Gio ($6.70) - before Jack’s R Wild ($27.40) and Bluegrass Springs ($12) eliminated any remaining live tickets.

Scoria ($11.80) won Thursday’s nightcap, holding off 21-1 shot Sycamore Lane by a neck and making for a consolation payout (5 of 6) of $8,909. Had Sycamore Lane won, the consolation payout would have returned $106,919.
