Former NFL assistant Mike Tice wins big at track
DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) - Mike Tice hit it big betting on the horses at Del Mar.
The former Minnesota Vikings coach and Chicago Bears assistant had the lone winning ticket for the Pick Six on Thursday. Tice correctly picked the winners of six consecutive races at the seaside track with a ticket that cost $128.
The payout netted him $100,796.
One of the winning horses was named Tebowing. Two of the races were won by the smallest of margins, a neck and a head.
Tice has been unemployed since December, when he was fired as offensive coordinator by the Bears. He's a longtime racing fan.
