Belmont Park: Pick six hit for $523,036


ELMONT, N.Y. – There was one winning ticket sold for Saturday’s pick six at Belmont Park, returning $523,036. The winning ticket was purchased through the Elite Turf Club, an advance-deposit-wagering platform through the Las Vegas hub, according to New York Racing Association officials.

There was a two-day carryover of $173,468 entering Saturday’s card, and an additional $629,175 was wagered into the pool Saturday.

After 21-1 shot Stanwyck upset the Grade 3 Turnback the Alarm Handicap, it appeared as though there would be a half-million-dollar carryover into Sunday’s closing-day program at Belmont, when the entire pool must be distributed. Going into Saturday’s last leg, only Precious Metal, a 10-1 shot, was covered in the 12-horse field.

Under Rajiv Maragh, Precious Metal rallied three wide in the stretch and held off 2-1 favorite Madam I’m Adam to get the win, returning $23.30.

The winning pick-six sequence of 4-5-2-5-4-5 included Wicked Strong ($10.20), Joy Seeker ($7.60), Candyman E ($6.50), Clearly Now ($9.80), Stanwyck ($44.80), and Precious Metal ($23.30).

Despite there being no mammoth carryover, the entire pick-six pool still must be distributed Sunday at Belmont.
