The six-race sequence saw every favorite defeated, several by stout outsiders. The upsets mean Sunday’s Pick Six Pool at the track is likely to surpass the track’s all-time Pick Six total pool of $3,555,771 established on August 15, 1998.
The Pick Six did pay a record consolation prize of $218,977.40 to two ticket holders who had five of the winners.
Additionally, the track set a new Pick Four standard when only three tickets tabbed the last four races on the card for a payoff of $200,000.70, crushing the previous high of $85,945.80 set last year on July 22.
The record Pick Six carryover for Sunday is the result of a three-day carryover. The previous record was a four-day carryover.
Del Mar's total handle for the day was $20,531,679, the ninth-largest in its history.
