Breeders' Cup: Carryover of $891,813 in 50-cent pick five for Saturday

Email

ARCADIA, Calif. – A massive carryover of $891,813 in the 50-cent pick five gives bettors an early jackpot wager to conquer on Saturday’s star-studded Breeders’ Cup program at Santa Anita.

Other major bets were hit on Friday’s Breeders’ Cup program, with lucrative payoffs. The $2 pick six paid $106,839 on a day when the pool failed to reach the guaranteed $1 million, drawing $891,012 in wagers.

The winners of the pick six races were Rookie Sensation ($18.20), London Bridge ($20), Outstrip ($14), Goldencents, ($9.60), Chriselliam ($15.80), and Beholder ($7.60).

The 50-cent late pick 4, beginning with Outstrip’s win in the BC Juvenile Turf, paid $403.90.

A string of longshots clinched Friday’s pick five carryover. The winners of Friday’s pick five races were Pure Loyalty ($10.80), Heir of Storm ($77.60), Better Bet ($96), Swiss Lake Yodeler ($18), and Rookie Sensation.

It is hard to gauge what the pool of new money will be on Saturday’s high-profile program, but it is likely to exceed $3 million. The bet has proven extremely popular in Southern California in recent years, with its low minimum and 14 percent takeout.

Saturday’s pick five covers the first five races on a 12-race program.

Ken Maddy Stakes for fillies and mares on the hillside turf course, the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies over 1 1/16 miles, and the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf over 1 1/4 miles.

Friday’s pick five had a guaranteed pool of $500,000 and was easily met. The 50-cent late pick four had a guaranteed pool of $1.5 million and reached a pool of $2,693,116.

Beholder won the first leg of a $2 double linking the BC Distaff and the BC Classic. Here are the probable payoffs to the runners in the BC Classic:
1. Last Gunfighter, $175
2. Paynter, $75

Today marks the beginning of the end for The Pick Six. The Pick Six will not reach its 2.5 million guarantee and The Pick Five will handle north of 3.5 million.

In fact, the six BC races proved to be quite pedestrian with barely a flicker of interest from a betting standpoint.

The $$891,000 carryover in the Pick 5 pool had nothing to do with the Breeders Cup as none of the races involved in the P5 were BC races...the first five races were just another SoCal weekday card full of nags that came staggering home an 50-1 odds!
