Churchill pick six: $63K


A record pick six pool at Churchill Downs resulted in 33 perfect tickets, each worth $63,045, after more than $2 million was bet into the wager on Thursday.

Tickets with 5 of 6 winners returned a consolation payoff of $375.

The Churchill pick six, a $2 minimum, was conducted on races 5 through 10. The winning numbers were 1-4-1-9-1-13.

Only one of the winners, Pay the Fox ($4) in the seventh race, was favored. The other winners were: Lods ($10.20), Federale ($12.20), Sweet Bernice ($22.20), Two Dot Slew ($7.20), and Champagne Now ($9.40)

The pick six had gained serious momentum after failing to be won on Kentucky Derby day. A spate of longshots prevailed Wednesday, after which a carryover of $855,542 enticed a record one-day handle of $2,035,975 on Thursday.

Churchill officials reported that three of the 33 perfect tickets were sold at the track.
