The program also has a six-day, $24,572 carryover in the 20-cent Pick 6 Jackpot and a one-day, $2,043 carryover in the $1 Super High Five.

Six days into Churchill’s 11-day September Meet, The Sheet is hitting at a 33 percent strike rate; its top selections have finished in the money 58 percent of the time.
