Edited NYRA Staff Release – Saturday’s 11-race card at Saratoga Race Course will be bolstered by a double $1 Pick 6 carryover of $532,907 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Friday.

The $1 Pick 6 returned $1,527 for bettors who selected 5-of-6 winners correctly. 

The sequence began with a $35,000 claiming victory by Juulstone [No. 5, $14.40] in Race 5 for trainer Mike Maker with Luis Saez up, who also piloted Danzigwiththestars [No. 4, $16.20] to an inner turf allowance score in Race 6 for conditioner Domenick Schettino.

Six Percent [No. 3, $15.20] drew off to an impressive $25,000 claiming score with Jose Ortiz up in Race 7 for trainer Jeremiah Englehart.

The first of two stakes on Friday’s program, the $150,000 Coronation Cup in Race 8, saw Hall of Famer John Velazquez pilot Empress Tigress [No. 11, $9.20] to victory for trainer Jonathan Thomas one race before City Man [No. 10, 26.60] upset the Grade 3 Forbidden Apple in Race 9 for trainer Christophe Clement with Joel Rosario in the irons.

With only three horses covered in the final leg, Khali Magic [No. 3, $15.80] and Manny Franco visited the winner’s circle in Race 10 with trainer Chris Englehart to trigger the carryover.
