Weekend Carryovers

As of this writing, a trio of guaranteed pools are on the upward trajectory. Here are the current totals.

$465,998 Pick 6 Jackpot at Gulfstream Park
$35,278 Pick 6 Jackpot at Tampa Bay Downs
$26,224 Pick 6 Jackpot at Remington Park

Please note that all three of these tracks are running on Friday. If the jackpot is hit by a single bettor, then the carryover stops as that lucky winner receives the bounty. When the Pick 6 is hit by multiple users, then a portion is paid out for winning tickets while the remainder rolls over.

For the biggest pool still going at Gulfstream, here’s when the Pick 6 gets underway for the next three days.

Friday, April 10 – Race 5 at 3:08 PM ET
Saturday, April 11 – Race 8 at 3:52 PM ET
Sunday, April 12 – Race 7 at 3:47 PM ET

That’s the story for this weekend’s racing action. As an aside, the lighter than normal schedule can actually open up some intriguing possibilities.

Have a new strategy you’ve been wanting to try out on a smaller scale? Now’s a great time to do so.

Do you normally shy away from races such as Maidens or Quarter Horses but are interested in learning more? You have a great opportunity to do so this weekend.

Enjoy the races, and best of luck!
