Churchill Downs DQ Leads To $317,738 Single 6 Jackpot Saturday

Racing resumes Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., with a 12-race program that begins at 1 p.m. (all times Eastern). The 92nd running of the $200,000 Kentucky Jockey Club (GII) – a “Prep Season” race on the Road to the Kentucky Derby – and the 75th running of the $200,000 Golden Rod (GII) for fillies are the headliners on the second-to-last day of Churchill Downs' 21-date Fall Meet. Billed as “Stars of Tomorrow II,” each of the 12 races is exclusively for 2-year-olds that may have aspirations of trail-blazing their way to next spring's Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve and Longines Kentucky Oaks.

There is a massive $317,738 carryover in the 20-cent Single 6 Jackpot to chase on Races 7-12 after Kentucky Horse Racing Commission stewards had a double disqualification in Friday's finale. If the result stood with Presidential Tweet crossing the wire first, the full jackpot would have been paid. Instead both Presidential Tweet and runner-up New Colossus were disqualified for interference in deep stretch and third-place finisher Laser Loop was promoted to first, which triggered the massive full carryover.

If the jackpot is not hit by a single winning combination on Saturday, there would be an enormous mandatory payout on Sunday's 12-race finale.

Also, there is a $49,200 carryover in Saturday's late Pick 5 on Races 8-12 because Friday's middle Pick 5 was not hit.
