Update: Derby payouts are here.
The Pick 6 is one of the most difficult wagers to hit in all of horse racing. The bet, which costs a minimum of $2 to place, involves picking the winners of six consecutive races. Today at Churchill Downs, the Pick 6 ends with the 20-horse Kentucky Derby, adding even more difficulty to an already tough wager. Due to a couple of long-shot winners on the under card, including a 12/1 winner in the G1-Woodford Turf Classic, the potential payouts for the Pick 6 are quite large.
Below is a summary of the will-pays for today's $2 Pick 6 at Churchill Downs.
|$2 Pick 6 Will-Pays|
|1||Daddy Long Legs||$7,669.40|
|3||Take Charge Indy||$3,466.00|
|10||Daddy Nose Best||$1,350,296.20|
|13||Went The Day Well||$1,350,296.20|
|19||I'll Have Another||$675,148.00|
The low payouts above represent a 5-of-6 scenario in which most of the pool carries over to the next day of racing at Churchill Downs.
Horseplayers can use as many horses as they want in each race but, the more horses you use, the more expensive your tickets becomes. It's not unusual for big-time Pick 6 players to spend more than $1,000 on a ticket, if they believe the payouts will be worth the investment.
