Huge Pick 5 Carryover Available at Del Mar on Sunday

From the Media Team at Del Mar:

Horseplayers will have a huge target to shoot at Sunday at Del Mar thanks to a surprising win by the 3-year-old gelding Diversionist Saturday afternoon in the seaside track’s 5th Race.

Diversionist paid $84.80 in the six-furlong maiden race and triggered an Early Pick Five carryover of $785,777, a Del Mar record.

That pool will start out the day at Del Mar on the .50-cent bet that covers the first five races on the program. First post is 2 p.m.

The previous record for a Pick Five carryover at the track was $362,503 on August 12, 2012.

We broke a little slow, like always,” said Velazquez. “As soon as we went past the wire I looked for the position I wanted and I got it. Then I sat there and I saw Ryan Moore move on the outside on the backstretch and kind of pushed him out and he came in, and I kind of followed him from there. From the half-mile pole there was really one horse to beat so I put her right behind that one and when I asked her she responded really well.”
