UPDATE - 5:10pm - With a great result of hitting an exacta in the last leg of the Place Pick 6, we have two winning tickets of $163.25 to collect a total of $326.50. That is the largest amount that we have collected in the PP6 this summer. That profit of $290.50 puts us in the black for the meeting!
Today is the NJ Thoroughbred Festival at Monmouth Park. All races are restricted to NJ-breds, including three stakes races. There is a back pack giveaway, also.
Here is the preliminary Place Pick 6 ticket and then I will be back later with any updates and to talk about Rapid Redux's 17th consecutive win last night.
Final Place Pick 6 Ticket: 11 with 3,5,6 with 1,6 with 3,6 with 2,9 with 5,6,8,10(scr). This is our standard $36 play.
