A two-day pick six carryover of $364,152 at Churchill Downs resulted in a $1,220,772 pick six pool for Wednesday's pick six and 92 winning tickets worth $10,894.40 each.
Wednesday's pick six pool was the fourth largest in track history and the first pick six pool over $1 million since the record pool of $1,655,598 was established on May 10, 1995.
The pick six carryover began on Kentucky Oaks day and continued Saturday, when the Kentucky Derby served as the final leg of the wager. Derby winner War Emblem was one of nine horses not included on a "live" ticket, and the pick six carried over again.
Eight dollars of winning tickets were cashed at Churchill Wednesday, with another $1 ticket cashed at asimulcasting outlet in Kentucky. The other $83 of tickets are presumed to have been sold at out of state locations.
