OZONE PARK, N.Y. - The Late Pick 5, covering the last five races of every card at NYRA tracks, went unsolved on Thursday resulting in a carryover of $46,315 when live racing resumes on Friday, January 31 at Aqueduct Racetrack.
Thursday's Late Pick 5 sequence featured a shocking upset in the penultimate leg when Whyisshesolucky shot up the rail under apprentice Luis Cardenas to win as the longest shot on the board returning $94 for a $2 win ticket.
The sequence kicked off in Race 4 with a resurgent Tom Morley-trained Overbold (No. 3, $7.80), under Kendrick Carmouche, fighting back along the rail to defeat Inclunation. In Race 5, Sixto (No. 3) returned a healthy $28.20 for a surprise score under Reylu Gutierrez.
No Deal (No. 5, $8.20) captured the day's sixth race at odds of 3-1 for jockey Junior Alvarado and trainer Chris Englehart. In the final leg, with only Catazalionbythetale covered in the Late Pick 5, Tiz Kaz Now (No. 1, $9.70) prevailed with Catzalionbythetale settling for third.
Friday's Late Pick 5 sequence will begin in Race 4 with an approximate 2:25 p.m. Eastern post time and will include a salty allowance tilt in Race 7 featuring Grade 1 Belmont Stakes-winner Sir Winston.
The Empire 6 jackpot heading into Friday's card stands at $252,159.
