There will be a mandatory payout of the Empire 6 on Saturday, December 7 – Cigar Mile Day – at Aqueduct Racetrack.
The jackpot carryover heading into Sunday's card stood at $520,913.
The card on December 7 will feature four graded stakes, highlighted by the 31st running of the Grade 1, $750,000 Cigar Mile and also includes the Grade 2, $250,000 Remsen, the Grade 2, $250,000 Demoiselle and the Grade 3, $250,000 Go For Wand.
Featuring a $0.20 minimum wager and 20 percent takeout, the Empire 6 requires the bettor to select the first-place finisher of the final six races of the card. On non-mandatory payout days, if one unique ticket exists, then 100% of the net pool, plus the jackpot carryover if applicable, will be paid to the winner.
If there is no unique wager selecting the first-place finisher in all six races, then 75% of the day's net pool will be distributed to those who selected the first-place finisher in the greatest number of races. The remainder will be added into the jackpot and carried to the next day's Empire 6.
