Nick’sPicks Hits the Largest Pick 6 in Del Mar History with a $6,656,591.00 Pool and a $35,553.40 Payout!!!!

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

What a perfect day at the seaside oval…. could it get any better? I rarely play the pick 6 and only will when the pool warrants it – I’m more of a pick 4 guy as you all know! Well I guess the $6.6 million dollar pool got my attention and what a better way to end the summer meet at Del Mar, but with a monster score of $35K plus. I was cautiously nervous as I entered into each leg of the sequence, but confident with my preparation. I was truly in shock as I watched each race live in person from the Del Mar Turf Club. Lots of support from friends and fellow horsemen as a I got closer and closer and before I knew it the last race was here and I was still alive. WHAT “still alive”… that never happens – right?  Well guess what… today was the day I was going to take this baby down. I found a spot to watch the last race with some friends. In actuality this dear couple who I sat with own and operate several funeral homes in Orange County CA. Perfect, just what I needed in case I keeled over from all the excitement. As the field entered the stretch and the longest shot of the 4 horses I had went to the lead, I knew it was in the bank before it was over, although the last 16th was like in slow motion as my horse crossed the finish line….. Jumping up and down with cheers from the group – “Nick you did it…. you just won the Pick 6” Are you kidding me – I just took this baby down? Yes I did no joke, just check out the IRS paperwork for all the proof…
