Saratoga: Pick six carryover of $333,445 for Monday's card


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - When Derby Champagne ($60) beat Mav by a head in Sunday’s 11th race at Saratoga, it triggered at two-day pick six carryover of $333,445 into Monday’s nine-race card.

Though Songbird ($2.60) was part of the pick six sequence, longshot winner Gap Year ($42.80) was another reason the wager went unhit for a second consecutive day.

There are only nine races on Monday’s Saratoga card so the pick six will start in race 4 (2:40 p.m. eastern) with a New York-bred maiden turf sprint for 2-year-old fillies.

The sequence also includes the $100,000 Lucky Coin Stakes for older male turf sprinters, where Undrafted, back from a sixth-place finish in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes, figures to be heavily favored.

Dry conditions are expected for the end of the opening week of racing at Saratoga so the main track should be fast and the turf course firm.

Something I've never seen before in racing----did anyone notice when the horses were in the gate for the first race, the eventual winner, Commandante, was 26-1 and when the gate opened he dropped 50% to 13-1. I've been around racing for 40 years and I have never seen odds drop that much with big win pools. Congratulations to those who bet the winner.

I've seen it a lot. I had a 25-1 horse I picked to win shoot up to 50-1 as soon as the gate opened. I was happy when he won, to say the least.
