The Super Six carryover pool increased to more than $1 million Friday at Louisiana Downs--largest ever in Louisiana and believed the second largest in North America--when no one picked the winners in races No. 3 through No. 8 for the eighth consecutive day. Track officials said the carryover pool was second only to the $1,830,146 Jan. 23 at Santa Anita. The carryover pool was $604,490.79. The on-track crowd of 9,073 wagered $372,248 on the Super Six.
