Del Mar: Pick six carryover jackpot must pay out on closing day


DEL MAR, Calif. – There is a single-ticket jackpot carryover of $89,411.16 awaiting pick six players on closing day Sunday at Del Mar, and since the pool must be paid out, it’s essentially a pick six carryover, period.

 The carryover money will go to anyone who hits the pick six on Sunday. If a single ticket hits the pick six, that money goes only to the winner. If more than one ticket has six, the money will be equally dispersed as additional funds to the winners, on top of the money from the general pool. And if no one has six, that money goes to those with the most winners, again on top of the money in the general pool.

 There was a general pool carryover of $42,767 entering Saturday’s card, plus $50,550 in the single-ticket jackpot. Bettors wagered $339,461 in fresh money.

 There were 13 winning tickets in the pick six on Saturday, each worth $17,929.40. Those with five of six got $96.80. So, the general pool carryover was divided among the 13 winners on Saturday, but the single-ticket jackpot carried.
