Wood Memorial Day, the centerpiece of the Aqueduct Racetrack spring meet, will get even richer with a two-day, $165,375 Pick 6 carryover into Saturday's card.

Rounding out the sequence was Pretentious (No. 8, $7) in Race 5, Holiday Disguise (No. 7, $10.20) in the Grade 3 Distaff as Race 8, and Gold Cross (No. 10, $15.40) in Race 9.

The consolation payout for five of six winners was $17,400.

Including all five stakes on the card, Saturday's Pick 6 will begin with the Grade 2, $300,000 Gazelle in Race 6 (with a post time of 3:38 p.m.) and highlighted by the $400,000 Carter Handicap, New York racing's first Grade 1 of the year, and the Grade 2, $1 million Wood Memorial, the final Kentucky Derby prep of the spring meet.
