The Pick 6 went unsolved for a second straight day on the Independence Day card at Belmont Park, resulting in a $165,301.72 carryover into Friday.

Thursday's Pick 6 sequence kicked off with Woodslane Farm’s Lunaire taking an optional-claiming allowance in Race 4, returning $19.20 for a $2 win wager. Green Light Go followed in Race 5 impressively, breaking his maiden in his debut for conditioner Jimmy Jerkens and owner Stronach Stables and paying $15.20.

Jockey Manny Franco took control of the sequence in Race 6 as Bellamy Knows [$14.20] reigned victorious for trainer Michelle Nevin and owners Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons Racing, Togabred Racing, and CWVII Stables.

In Race 7, Irad Ortiz Jr. piloted post-time favorite Mr. Massena [$8.60] to victory with a strong late-closing kick down the stretch. In Race 8, the $100,000 Manila for 3-year-olds at a mile on the Widener turf, Live Oak Plantation’s Win Win Win made a success debut on grass for conditioner Mike Trombetta and rider Julian Pimentel. He returned $10.20.

 In the final leg of the sequence, post-time favorite Peggy Sue extended away late, drawing off late as the Eddie Barker trainee captured the finale, paying $4.30.

 A consolation payout of $1,685 was awarded to bettors who had five-of-six winners in the Pick 6.

 Live racing resumes Friday at Belmont with a nine-race card. First post time is at 1:30 p.m., with the Pick 6 beginning in Race 4 with a 3:08 p.m. post time and will include the featured Grade 3, $150,000 Victory Ride in the penultimate leg of the sequence.
