Thursday’s eight-race card at Aqueduct Racetrack will feature a Late Pick 5 carryover of $189,194 after the multi-race wager went unsolved on Sunday’s nine-race program.

Sunday’s $1 Pick 6 featured a mandatory payout and returned $4,780.50 to bettors who selected 5-of-6 correctly.

Sunday’s Late Pick 5 sequence kicked off in formful fashion in Race 5 with O’Trouble [No. 2, $3.10*] rallying up the rail under Jose Gomez to score a claiming sprint win for trainer Antonio Arriaga.

The Luis Rodriguez Castro-piloted Ricelle [No. 6, $13.20] notched the first of two winners in the sequence for conditioner Ricardo Legall, taking Race 6, a six-furlong maiden claiming sprint for older New York-bred fillies and mares.

Gaslight [No. 7, $29.60] prevailed in Race 7, a starter-allowance sprint for older horses, with Heman Harkie in the irons for Patrick Quick ahead of an impressive score by multiple stakes-placed Milton the Monster [No. 3, $10.80] in Race 8, winning first off the claim in a seven-furlong optional-claiming sprint for older horses under Manny Franco for trainer Tom Morley.

Prince of Joy (No. 8, $66) was the only horse uncovered in the Race 9 finale – a one-mile claiming tilt for older horses – and the 5-year-old Laoban gelding rallied impressively to score the upset victory under Jacqueline Davis for Legall as the longest shot on the board.

Thursday’s Late Pick 5 kicks off in Race 4 at 2:16 p.m. Eastern. First post is 12:50 p.m.

America’s Day at the Races will present live coverage and analysis of the Aqueduct winter meet on the networks of FOX Sports. For the broadcast schedule and channel finder, visit
