MGM Northfield Park has received permission from the Ohio State Racing Commission to have a mandatory payout of the entire Single 6 pool on Wednesday, November 27. 

The 20-cent Single 6 is a unique combination Pick 6 wager held nightly on Northfield races 9-14.  The wager has not been solved by a single combination winner in over six weeks.  The carryover pool has grown to an all-time high $119,850.83 heading into Northfield’s next racing program Saturday, November 23.

“There are still four cards of racing (November 23, 24, 25 and 26) before the mandatory payout date for the Single 6, so there is no guarantee that we will have a six-figure carryover going into the Wednesday program” said Dave Bianconi, Northfield Park’s Executive Vice President of Racing & Simulcasting. 

“There are no provisions in the rules for the wager to be suspended, so it will go on as normal until Wednesday the 27th, when we will have a mandatory payout of the entire pool, whether the carryover is $150,000, or $0.  We have had a couple of near misses this week of players taking down the entire pool, so it could certainly happen anytime we race.  I’d love to see the big carryover last until Wednesday because I’m sure it could swell to over $500,000 that night. If it is hit before then, you just have to tip your cap to the handicapper who takes it down and start the cycle all over.”

Post time for the Thanksgiving-eve card on Wednesday night, November 27, is 6:00 PM (Eastern).
