Pick six carryover of $141,367 for Friday


ELMONT, N.Y. – There will be a pick six carryover of $141,367 at Belmont Park on Friday after the wager went unhit for a second straight card Thursday.

Despite longshot winners Finders Key ($28.60), Sam Sparkle ($23.20), and Ode to Sami ($58) as part of the sequence, there were live tickets to three of the eight runners entering the nightcap.

There were two live tickets with Five Star Dixie, a 5-1 shot, who appeared to be cruising while on the lead turning for home. At the three-sixteenths pole, however, Five Star Dixie, under Irad Ortiz Jr., stumbled badly. She eventually faded to fourth behind Copper Bluff, the 5-2 second choice.

Friday’s sequence starts with race 4 (2:53 p.m.) and includes four turf races.
