Record Gulfstream pick six


Six-figure pick six payouts were the order of the day Thursday at both Aqueduct and Gulfstream Park, with Gulfstream's payout of $799,191.60 more than double the track's previous high payoff for the wager on a non-Breeders' Cup card.

Only one ticket was alive going into the final race of the record seven-day pick six carryover at Gulfstream. That ticket was on the 2-1 favorite Pleasant Chimes, though, and her easy victory in the nightcap was worth $799,191.60 to the lone ticket-holder, who purchased the winning combination through the Lewiston, Maine, simulcast hub.

The payoff was the largest non-Breeders' Cup payoff in track history and easily eclipsed the previous Gulfstream record regular-card payoff of $309,788.40 for the pick six on Jan. 17, 2001.

The winning combination of 9-10-11-1-12-10 included four program favorites, along with longshots Goldbrook ($85.20) and Cloakof Vagueness ($18.20).

At Aqueduct, with a three-day carryover the pick six pool swelled to more than $1.5 million, and seven winning tickets were sold, each returning $154,111. There were 331 consolation tickets (5 of 6), each returning $659.

Thursday's Aqueduct card began with a three-day carryover of $424,209. An additional $1,163,678 was wagered into the pool. The winning combination of 5-1-3-6-4-2 included Be Wild Again ($11.20), My Names Nicole ($3.70), Igor ($22.20), Fiddlers Pride ($41.80), Neverlacken ($10.80), and Talkin Tough ($7.10).
