Pick-six carryover at $205K


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - The first five days of Aqueduct's main-track meeting have already produced five winners that have paid more than $45. All five came in races involved in the pick-six sequence, so it should come as no surprise that there have been four pick-six carryovers.

Victories by Calculator ($45.60) on Saturday and Gattinara ($47.20) on Sunday helped create a $205,721 carryover heading into Wednesday's card. With two days for handicappers to prepare, expect close to a $1 million pool.

A modest $72 ticket may look like this:

Race 4: has run second in three of four starts, including a three-quarter-length loss in his debut over the main track last fall. Anything close to that effort should win this New York-bred maiden race.

Western Accent is one of two 4-year-olds in this field and hopefully will move up on the main track after a pair of so-so efforts on the inner track. Trainer Jimmy Jerkens is 3 for 4 at this meet.

Raff and Tumble, beaten at 1-2 odds last out, is the stronger half of Dominic Galluscio's entry.

Race 5: Expect scratches, as Booming Economy was eased on Sunday and Scott Lake has Mike Luzzi named on both of his horses. Lake said Monday he is leaning toward running Initially, whom he claimed for $16,000 on March 3. Lake had him entered once before but scratched him when he got sick. Initially has won at the one-turn mile.

and Successful Affair make up a useable Galluscio-trained entry.

Deeper pockets should use Shots and Karakorum Tuxedo, both of whom are multiple winners over the main track.

Race 6: Applying the horse-for-course theory, we'll single , who has won his last two over the main track, and leave off Don't Knock America, who flourished around two turns on the inner oval.

Race 7: Singling Gulfstream shipper , who won a $32,000 maiden claimer at Gulfstream in her debut. Jeremy Rose sees fit to come in for his only mount of the day. Others may want to use Act as If.

Race 8: has improved with blinkers and should be able to stretch out to a mile. Raf and Ready is a strong one-turn horse and may offer value coming off several bad-looking two-turn races. New York Dream has improved with blinkers for trainer Todd Pletcher.

Race 9: Two West and are the best of a weak group. Can't blame those who would use Sultry City, who won last July but was disqualified from purse money, and is thus still a maiden.
