Opening day at Aqueduct comes on the first day of the Breeders Cup. Bad weather canceled the Belmont Park card on October 27th bringing the Pick-6 Jackpot mandatory payout to Aqueduct with a carryover of $279,432. Weather again will be an issue for those looking to play the Pick-6.
Rain has been coming in waves over the last few days with rainfall totals of just above 1.5″ since Monday. The last round is expected to come early Friday morning with totals to be around another quarter of an inch. The last round of rain will end around 3 AM giving the track a little bit of time to recover. This last round will bring the weekly total to 1.75″ of rain at Aqueduct going into the Pick-6 carryover races. This will likely force defections, if not force the races off the turf for Races 6 and 8. The clouds are expected to clear out mid morning giving way to a sunny, but brisk day at the BIG A! Good luck to you all with not only the Pick-6 at Aqueduct, but your Breeders Cup tickets as well!
