What are horse racing Carryovers? A carryover is when no wins occur at the end of a race on a particular wager type - for example, a Pick 4, Pick 5 or Pick 6. All wagers in the 'pool' are then carried over to the next designated race. The carryover continues from race to race until a lucky winner or winners collect the prize pool, which can reach millions of dollars. As carryover pools increase in value, more betting interest is evidenced and consequently as horse bettors have a chance to win bigger money.
The magic of horse racing betting carryovers is twofold. First, money attracts money so players know there's a chance for a life changing payout. In addition, value conscious horse players wait for carryovers to jump in because they recognize that they're getting a unique bonus - more money is being paid out that has been wagered that day, so instead of a takeout, there's an effective "put in" for those who stayed out of the previous days' pools.
Let's use this upcoming Del Mar Pick 6 carryover as an example. To win a Pick 6 wager, the horse player must select the winner of six consecutive races that day at the same racetrack. Obviously, the odds of winning a Pick 6 are quite large, therefore, even a small wager can return an enormous payout if won.
The largest carryover to date was the three-day accumulation at Santa Anita race track. Horse betting spiraled from a no-carryover pool of $168,963 on Friday, to $589,083 on Saturday, and $1,532,684 on Sunday. When that card ended without a winner, there was a $1.26 million carryover into Monday, which drew an additional $3,337,881 in bets.
