Pick Six reaches Hawthorne All-time high $96,932
Wager begins with Saturday’s fifth race
Stickney, IL – As if everyday at Hawthorne isn’t a treat, you get an added bonus on Saturday, December 20, when the Pick Six begins the day with a carryover of $96,932.
The carryover is the largest in Hawthorne history.
From the first race in Friday’s Pick Six sequence, the chances of nobody hitting the exotic wager grew dramatically when Dangerous Gal lit up the board to the tune of $245.00 to win. From there the favorites continued to take a beating and by the time the seventh race was official, the carryover was cemented.
The Saturday Pick Six will start in race five and continue through race ten.
Post time for the first leg will be approximately 3:30 pm.
