Belmont $538,765 Triple Pick 6 Carryover Players' Pool Panel Wrap Up 9/19

The Players Pool went after the $539k triple Pick 6 carryover on Thursday, September 19, 2013, at Belmont Park, wagering $36,672 and getting back $940 for eight consolation payoffs worth $117.50 each.

Whenever the panel convenes for a pool the question we ask ourselves is, What is our strongest opinion. The answer to that question is how we structure tickets, and unfortunately for recent players pools including this one we’ve had the wrong answer.

The answer to that question this time was that we felt strongly that either #5, #6, or #9 would win race 9, and we structured more than 90% of our tickets one of those three horses winning. The eventual winner #10 was our next choice, but we had made cuts elsewhere to play a ticket that included him. Unfortunately, one of those cuts (#1 in race 6/leg2) also won..

All six winners paid $16,961. Thank you for participating. We hope we can offer another one real soon!
