Luck Pick Six returns $13,816 to 30 ticket holders


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - Bookended by double-digit priced winners Hooh Why ($37.40) and Chokecherymary ($18.80), Saturday’s Luck Pick Six returned $13,816 to each of 30 winning tickets.

 The wager had a pool of $543,301, easily surpassing the guarantee of $250,000.

 The Luck Pick Six was a wager that combined three restricted stakes races each from Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita, and was done as a promotional tool for the HBO series “Luck,” which premieres Sunday night.

 The winning sequence of 8-4-5-5-6-5 began with Hooh Why’s upset win in the Florida Sunshine Millions Turf. First or second choices won the next four starts – Compari ($4) in the Sensational Star, Little Mike ($5.80) in the Sunshine Millions Turf, Holladay Road ($6.60) in the Crystal Water, and Mucho Macho Man ($6.20) in the Sunshine Millions Classic. It concluded with Chokecherymary ($18.80) upsetting the scratched-reduced Valentine Dancer.
