A California-record Pick-Six payoff of $573,534.60 was won by an unidentified group of handicappers who had the only perfect ticket Monday at Bay Meadows race track in San Mateo, Calif.
The group invested more than $3,000 in the Pick-Six but made their big hit with a $96 "minor" ticket that surpassed the previous Pick-Six record return of $488,396 set at Bay Meadows on Jan. 11, 1984.
Lured by the five-day carryover, 13,290 fans wagered $2,670,909 for the biggest Monday in the history of Northern California racing.
The winning Pick-Six party singled Moneymarbleschalk in the fourth race and Ima Track Star in the sixth heat with multiple selections in the other races. Both of their singles had to stage strong stretch rallies to win.
The winning number combination was 3-12-4-10-6-5.
