Handicappers have plenty to take aim at during the first two days of Monmouth Park’s four-day Labor Day race weekend that starts Friday and runs through Monday, Sept. 3. 

The Jersey Shore Pick 6 carryover stands at a record $305,470 entering Friday’s eight-race card, with the 20-cent base wager paying out the entire jackpot pool only if there is a single winning ticket holder. 

The Pick 6 starts in the 3rd race on Friday. First race post time that day is 1:15 p.m. 

On Saturday there will be a $150,000 single ticket guarantee on the late Pick 5, which covers races eight through 12 and includes the Grade 3 Violet Stakes, the Grade 3 Red Bank Stakes and the $75,000 Sapling Stakes for 2-year-olds. 

First race post time Saturday is 12:50 p.m.
