WITHERS DAY TO INCLUDE $98K DOUBLE PICK 6 CARRYOVER


OZONE PARK, N.Y. – The Saturday Pick 6 at Aqueduct Racetrack will feature a $98,922 double Pick 6 carryover and three stakes, including the 132nd running of the Grade 3, $200,000 Withers.

The sequence begins with race 5, which has a scheduled post time of 2:13. The Withers, the fifth leg of the Pick 6, is headed by Godolpin Racing’s Alpha, who looks to post consecutive stakes victories at the Big A, having taken the Count Fleet on January 7.


The Pick 6 also includes a pair of sprint stakes. The morning-line favorite for the $100,000 Correction, a filly and mare event that will serve as the second leg, is Nicole H, who is unbeaten in three starts on the inner track. The fourth leg is the Grade 3, $150,000 Toboggan, which features last year’s winner Calibrachoa. Seven opponents, including Repole Stable entry-mate Caixa Eletronica and a coupled entry from owner Michael Dubb, will take on Calibrachoa.

Also on offer is the $250,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4, which spans the final four races, 7-10, on the card.

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 wagering.
