Del Mar: Pick six pays $308k to five winners


DEL MAR, Calif. -- After a two-day carryover produced massive interest, the pick six was hit at Del Mar on Friday, returning $308,928 to five ticketholders.

Friday’s pick six began with a carryover of $432,260. Bettors added $2,081,401 on Friday after missing out on the tough sequence on Wednesday and Thursday.

The winners of Friday’s pick six races, the second through seventh races, were Janie Girl ($59.40), Love That Action ($27.60), Swiss Bliss ($6.60), Bella Viaggia ($4), Fed Biz ($4.60) and American Tanker ($24.40).

best way to launder money,get some inside information,pressure some jockeys,put in 30 000,and if you win you get 380 000 minus taxes + consolations which can be substantial when you have all in some races.of course this now becomes clean money.if you think it doesn't happen check out www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcCoOYNIBZo.or just type in murder,drugs,jockeys australia on utube.its happening in australia right now.

It was a good day to bet the 6. Only seven races on the card so there was only one preliminary race to be distracted by. Some of us have real jobs and spare free time. Now Saturday's card has 11 races. Does the general public have so much liesure time that they can devote 8 hours to the races? I mean, to do even a cursory job of handicapping, you have to spend a half hour per race. To give due diligence, to "know" a horse, a person shouldn't even bet the races without Formulator. Then you're looking at an hour per race. Of course, a person can choose to do just a handful of races and skip the rest. But you pay for a ticket, you buy the Form, you want to stay current. I guess I'm saying, people don't mind losing a little bit. But we don't like losing and wasting hours where we could have been productive. Keep the cards to 8 races with a maximum of 8 or ten horses. We all know you can still see double digit winners, even in 6 horse races. They wonder why they aren't attracting more people to the races. Because most people aren't connected to the industry and have limited time. We live in the real world.

takeout is too high! The 5 winners still have to take out another 25% in Fed'l taxes + State taxes. The five winners are looking at $200k when its all said and done. Probably won by syndicates who had "ALL" in most races and singled to Fed Biz. just a guess

I wouldn't do that. "All" in every race is a lot of combinations. Then the entire ticket would be a win bet on Fed Biz. Even if I had the money, I'd still do the handicapping until I "know" my horse. Sometimes you need two. When you start going three, you are grasping at straws. Have you ever taken three in a race and your fourth pick wins? Keep learning. Don't bet big until you find that you are inventing your own handicapping angles. When you notice you can hit 20 to 60 dollar winners with no more than two horses in a race, you are about there.

308k to 5 winners is 1.5 mil. what happened to the other 1/2 of the pool? The people who control the success or failure of this industry are the $2 dollar bettors who are content to consistently lose their hard earned money betting on these races. When a 3-1 favorite wins, 4 of 5 people who bet the race loses. A longshot means just about everyone loses. Why don't we all just stay home, keep our money, and let these people who bought these million dollar horses bet amongst themselves and see how they do?

taxes and consolation payouts on 5 out of six.

The pool announced is before the takeout. The success of the industry is NOT controlled by the $2 bettors ... quite the opposite. The math is simple on this one. Stay home. Your negativity derived from not understanding how pools work, who drives odds, and the mere fact that everyone loses more races than they win (the goal of the game is to make sure your winning races offset your losing races) is not needed.

They don't take out 25% for "there greedy selfs". The takeout is divided amongst the 1) horseman for purses (>> no purses, no horses running ... no sport ... no many getting rich here), 2) the state who licenses and regulates the racing (>> salaries and money into the state's general fund for services ... states are broke), and 3) the outlet/website that takes the bet, (where most bets now occur and racing woudl die without them) and 4) the racetrack. Where is the greed? If you don't like it, or can't beat then find something else to do.
