Saturday’s Cigar Mile card will be bolstered by a triple Pick 6 carryover of $729,611 as the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday at Aqueduct Racetrack.

The $1 Pick 6 returned $2,938 to bettors who selected five out of the six winners correctly.

Friday’s sequence kicked off in Race 5 with Sweet Mission (No. 12, $45.80) posting a 21-1 upset in a 1 1/16-mile inner turf claiming tilt for fillies and mares. Jose Ortiz piloted the winner for Mark Hennig.

Lost My Sock (No. 1, $104.50), sent to post at odds of 51-1 under Raul Mena for trainer Derek Ryan, wore down Glitter Up in deep stretch to win Race 6, a six-furlong outer turf sprint for maiden juvenile fillies.

The streak of longshots continued in Race 7, a six-furlong optional-claiming sprint for state-bred 3-year-olds and up, with Saratoga Pal (No. 4, $40.40) rallying wide down the lane to win at odds of 19-1 as the longest shot in the seven-horse field. Eric Cancel guided the winner for Chris Englehart.

Crea’s Bklyn Law (No. 8, $8.10) rallied down the center of the track to capture Race 8 with Kendrick Carmouche up for Michael Miceli in the 6 1/2-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds and up on the main track.

Off at odds of 4-1, Summer to Remember (No. 2, $12.20) took charge into the final turn and staved off a late charge from Smile Bryan to win Race 9, a 1 1/16-mile inner turf claiming tilt for 3-year-olds and up. Ortiz engineered the score for trainer Rudy Rodriguez.

With the carryover already confirmed, the Christophe Clement-conditioned She’s the One (No. 3, $3.30) prevailed as the odds-on choice under Irad Ortiz, Jr. in Race 10, a six-furlong outer turf sprint for New York-bred fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.

Saturday’s Pick 6 kicks off in Race 5 at 1:45 p.m. EST and includes the $750,000 Cigar Mile (G1), the $250,000 Remsen (G2), the $250,000 Demoiselle (G2), and the $250,000 Go for Wand (G3). First post on the 10-race card is 11:50 a.m.
