Aqueduct Racetrack will present a Pick 6 with a
$113,726 carryover on Sunday as the wager evaded bettors for the second
straight day on Saturday.
Sunday’s Pick 6 will begin with race 4, which has a scheduled
post time of 1:45 p.m. The wager’s penultimate leg is the Sunday feature,
the $75,000 Hildy’s Grey for New York-bred fillies and mares. Six betting
interests have been entered in the one-mile, 70-yard race, headed by 9-5
morning-line favorite Opus A, who in her most recent start earned her second
career stakes victory.
The other five legs attracted at least eight entrants, with four having
drawn 10 runners before scratches.
Those who wish to play the Pick 6 can place their bets at Aqueduct
Racetrack or the Belmont Café, or through NYRA Rewards, which offers
Internet, On-Track, Phone, and Mobile
Jockey Cornelio Velasquez was in stable condition Saturday evening as
he was taken to North
Hospital complaining of
neck and back pain after being unseated in the day’s final race.
In the Saturday 10th race, Velasquez’s mount, Coronado Heights, broke down and fell along the
backstretch. Lime Zest struck his fallen opponent, dislodging jockey Ryan
Curatolo, who was cleared by NYRA’s first aid.
