Belmont: Pick six carryover of $539,765 for Thursday's card


ELMONT, N.Y. - When 24-1 shot Smokey Brown rallied past 2-1 favorite Gridiron Great in deep stretch of Wednesday’s 10th race at Belmont, it triggered a $539,765 pick six carryover into Thursday’s card.

Thursday’s pick six will start in race 5 - the $100,000 Spite the Devil Stakes for New York-breds - of the 10-race card and include five turf races.

The pick six was not hit either Saturday or Sunday, creating a $176,813 carryover into Wednesday’s program. An additional $638,095 was wagered into the pool on Wednesday.

Heading into the final leg of Wednesday’s pick six, half of the field was covered. Gridiron Great, the 2-1 favorite, was covered to the tune of $134,941 - to four winning tickets - and he took the lead turning for home. But, Gridiron Great couldn’t hold off Smokey Brown and apprentice Angel Arroyo. It was the third win of the meet for trainer John Toscano.

Those who correctly selected five of six in the pick six received $10,081.

The sequence of 4-4-8-3-8-9 consisted of Folk Singer ($9.20), Desert Bliss ($10.80), Mah Jong Maddnes ($26.20), Mariel N Kathy ($7.20) Crackerjack Jones ($18.80), and Smokey Brown ($50.50).

Does anyone know why all were paid in the third leg of the grand slam on wednesday. I had crumpled up my ticket thinking it was a loser. Today I happen to check it to see how much it paid I see I might have won $322. Im happy as heck but confused

right there with you. was not the least surprised that the jockeys managed to create another carryover. maybe it will be the people who pay for all the scripted races that these jocks produce daily. i think they like to create a big carryover pool and then scoop most of it up for themselve. at least they did at saratoga.
