Default Congrats to the Pick 6 Winners at Santa Anita!!!

It paid 661k and I think there were 3 or 4 tickets.

Score of a lifetime!!!

Great Capping!!!

I heard they were chugging the beers during the last 2 or 3 races to calm the nerves.

Party at WC's house. Are you coming out picksix?

The chugging of beers had nothing to do with nerves. That is their normal routine.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

Very nice- these things come in 3s-p6 and itp your on deck.

$2 Pick 6 $5,158.20 2-9-7-5-4-8 (5 Correct) pool $2,240,313
$2 Pick 6 $661,283.20*2-9-7-5-4-8 (6 Correct)
---------
I think this is how you do this
2.2m pool- take out .6 for vig
we got 1.6 take out .3 for 5/6
1.3 split between 2 winners.
60 tickets on 5/6
---I think thers something wrong with my logic but its seems to add up pretty close.

Bet your friend had 10-20 of those 5/6.

How much do people usually put on a P6 ticket?

Dr. Chau,

I think that to have a realistic shot at a pool like that, you would have to spend at the minimum, a couple of thousand. Those gamblers that play smaller tickets have little chance of hitting, but are great for the high rollers because their bets add to the pool.

Unless you are willing to spend a couple of thousand, then it would be wiser to stick to trying to hit the pick 4s, and 3s. That is what I do, as I feel that with my limited bankroll, it would be wiser to chase more realistic pots. Just my two cents.

Dr. Chau,

The minimun bet is $2. The way to figure out how much your ticket will cost is to multiply tha amount of horses in each race X $2.

An example would be if you used 4 horses in the first leg, 3 in the second, 5,2,1,4...that would be 4X3X5X2X1X4 = 480 X $2 = $960

It is very hard to answer your question about how much people usually play.

There are plenty of guys out there that play a $32 ticket. There are also plenty of groups that put in a few thousand dollar ticket and even much higher on a big carry like today. I would guess the average Jo that takes a shot by himself puts in around 100-300.

A lot also depends on what your stlye of betting is. I like the bet, and sometimes it will be my only bet of the day, so it will ususlly be a pretty expensive ticket. There are other serious players that don't bother trying it very often, except for maybe a small ticket, as they also bet each race on its own.

FWIW, my friend that hit it "only" put in something around the $400 range today.

Agree with p6.

Ill just add that each racetrack may be a little differnet in their rules.
In Kentucky for example its a $1 wager.(I think)
Heres an example of how rules may vary- note what it says on amount carry over.
PICK SIX - Selecting the winners of six straight races. Because of the difficulty of selecting six winners in the designated Pick Six races, a consolation is paid to the bettors with the most winners if no one gets all six correctly. If no one hits the Pick Six, half of the money played on the bet is carried over to the next day's Pick Six pool. The pool can continue to grow until someone gets the six winners.

Stickler for numbers...

I cant seem to make them work.

Help me out guys.
At SA
Im figuring the takeout on carryover p6 days to be 20.8
After that the pool is split 70% to all 6 and 30% to 5/6.
(Carryover is not hit for the vig and is only put in 6/6 portion of pool.)
Im ending up about 10k off.
Reverse engineering if I use ~20.19 for takeout.
Comes out just about perfect with3 winners and 104 that have 5/6.

Do you guys know the takeout and the split percentages?
Im pretty sure Im correct on my carryover assumptions regarding theres no vig on it and its only put in 6/6 part of pool- but Im not even sure that is uniform rule throughout the US.

Three cash for $661,283 in pick 6
By BRAD FREE
ARCADIA, Calif. - Three horseplayers who cashed last Sunday for $661,283 on the Santa Anita pick six - a day the gross pool exceeded $2.9 million - employed a combination of good handicapping and good-sized bankrolls to score. Bettors wagering through Thistledown and Los Alamitos won their pick six bets with plays of $576 and $768, respectively, while a New York Racing Association bettor invested two tickets that cost a total of $10,944 in order to make the score.
While the Thistledown and Los Alamitos bettors wagered similar amounts, their contrasting wagering strategy is revealed in how their winning tickets were constructed. The Thistledown bettor used at least two horses in each race, while the Los Alamitos bettor singled the second and third legs in the sequence, allowing more horses to be used in the other four legs.

Without a single, the Thistledown bettor could not go deep in any race. In the Arcadia Handicap, won by $41.80 upsetter Century City, the bettor used only two horses - the favored Ballingarry and the winner. The bettor also was fortunate in the first leg, using the favorite and $35.80 winner Cherokee's Disco. The $576 ticket was structured 2 x 3 x 4 x 2 x 3 x 2. The upset win by Century City was the highest-priced winner in the pick six.

The Thistledown bettor went deep in four legs, but required precision in the second and third legs of the sequence. The $768 ticket was structured 4 x 1 x 1 x 6 x 4 x 4. After picking up the $35.80 winner in the first leg (4th race), the bettor singled $7.40 winner Nancys Magic Brush (5th) and $6.60 winner Bullistic (6th). The next three races were relatively easy given the strategy employed - the bettor went six deep to catch $41.80 Century City (7th), four deep to get $19.20 Swordfish (8th), and four deep for $13 Golden Rahy (9th).

The NYRA bettor used sheer volume to win the pick six. A $3,168 ticket that singled the even-money Devious Impact (4th) was dead after the first leg, while the winning $7,776 ticket used at least three runners in each leg. It was structured 3 x 3 x 4 x 4 x 3 x 9.
