One lucky bettor at Del Mar cashed in for a whopping $1,109,920.80 on a Pick Six bet Wednesday afternoon when he held the only winning ticket in the popular bet at the seaside oval.
The bettor had invested $3,024 on his ticket and cashed in for the fourth largest Pick Six payout in track history.
The consolation payout for five winners on the bet was $4,386. There were 85 of those tickets sold, with 20 of them held by the winning bettor, adding $87,720 to his total.
The sequence of winners was: 3rd Race – Three Cuties ($7.40); 4th Race – Hameildaeme ($14.80); 5th Race – Te Rapa ($8.40); 6th Race – Pedaltothemedal ($6.80); 7th Race – Calimonco ($43.40); 8th Race – January Miss ($49.40). Only Three Cuties was a favorite.
The Pick Six pool started with a $239,490 carryover from Sunday’s races when nobody had all six. There was a total of $1,629,363 in new money “chasing” the bet today, bringing the grand total in the pool to $1,868,853.
