Two anonymous fans had plenty to celebrate Sunday at the Los Angeles County Fair at Pomona when they made off with record Pick Six returns of $79,379.40 each.
The two patrons were the only ones among 19,610 with the perfect combination of 3-4-2-2-4-6 for the winners of the fifth through 10th races.
The record payoffs beat the previous Pick Six high of $78,019 set last Sept. 19th.
Lured by a two-day carryover of $84,636, a record $188,745 was wagered in the Pick Six pool on Sunday. That topped the previous mark of $174,853, also set last year. There were 86 tickets with five winners. Each consolation payoff was worth $862.20.
Meanwhile, Our Best Tell held off the late bid of Le L'Argent to capture the $50,090 E.B. Johnston Stakes for a second straight year.
