Single-ticket jackpot carries over again, now at $40,457


DEL MAR, Calif. – For the first time at the 6-day-old Del Mar meeting, the pick six was hit by multiple tickets Saturday, allowing the single-ticket jackpot to carry over for a second straight day, reaching a total of $40,457.

No one hit the pick six on Friday, so there were carryovers of $33,871 in the general pool, and another $7,258 in the single-ticket jackpot. Another $290,004 in fresh money was bet into the pick six on Saturday.

Seven tickets had the winning combination, each worth $26,895.

Under the new pick six rules this meet, 70 percent of the pool goes to those with six winners. If no one hits six, that money is carried over in the general pool.

Of the remaining 30 percent, half – 15 percent – is reserved for a single winning pick six ticket, and is referred to as the jackpot carryover.

That is the percentage that has now carried over for two straight days.

The other 15 percent goes to those with 5 of 6 when six winners are hit, or those with the most winners when no one has six.
