A series of longshots on Saturday at Churchill Downs triggered a trio of significant carryovers for Sunday's 10-race Mother's Day program beneath the Twin Spires.
There is a $245,821 carryover in the 20-cent Single 6 Jackpot, which will cover Races 5-10 on Sunday; a $98,666 carryover in the 50-cent Late Pick 5, which covers Races 6-10; and a $16,095 carryover in the $1 Super Hi-5, which will be held in the finale.
The Single 6 Jackpot challenges bettors to select the winners of six consecutive races but the Jackpot pool only is paid if there is a single winning ticket. When multiple tickets contain six winners 90 percent of that day's pool is paid out and 10 percent is added to the Jackpot carryover. Takeout on the Single-6 Jackpot is just 15 percent, which is one of the lowest multi-race wager takeout rates in American racing.
The Pick 5, arguably the fastest growing wager in the U.S., also features a low 15 percent takeout.
There was a $153,128 Single 6 Jackpot carryover for Saturday's last six races but there were no tickets with six winners. Winning horses in the sequence were 1-2 favorite One Last Strike ($5); 9-5 favorite Eskenforit ($5.80), Cause I'm Edgy ($21), Han Sense ($75.60), Change of Control ($73.80) and With Dignity ($36.20). Also, there were no tickets with five in the Late Pick 5.
Sunday's card at Churchill Downs begins at 12:45 p.m. (all times Eastern). The start of the Single 6 Jackpot will be 3 p.m., the Late Pick 5 starts at 3:35 p.m. and the Super Hi-5 in the finale is 5:45 p.m.
