Avicii was third and Run for Retts fourth in the field of six fillies mares.
Cuddle Alert returned $30.20, $7.80 and $3.20. Noted and Quoted paid $3.40 and $2.40, while Avicii returned $2.60 to show.
In addition to the Pick Six carryover, the Super Jackpot single ticket carryover increased to $136,518. Friday’s Pick Six will be conducted on the third through eighth races.
