A NYRA Rewards
customer on Wednesday had the sole winning ticket on Belmont Park's Pick 6, which paid $423,424.
Five of the six winners in the sequence paid double digits to win, including first-time starters Summerdale, who began the sequence with a $56 payout for a $2 wager, and Princess Adelyn, who paid $21.80 when she captured the fourth leg.
The other winners in the sequence were Chasing Moonlight ($11.80, second leg), My Place ($7, third leg), Cheyenne Nation ($14.40, fifth leg), and Ale ($10.40, sixth leg). My Place was the lone favorite to win a Pick 6 race.
In the final leg, Ale defeated Logan Street, Trainingforsuccess, and Yo Blue in a blanket finish. The four horses who formed the superfecta in the last race were the only horses covered in the Pick 6.
Tickets with five winners returned $2,075.
Racing at Belmont resumes tomorrow at 1:05 p.m.
