DEL MAR, Calif. -

Former Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice won $100,796.20 by hitting the Pick 6 at Del Mar Race Track in Southern California on Thursday, reported.

Tice was the Vikings head coach from 2002 to 2005, and he was the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator last season.

"I'm a horse guy. Belmont and Saratoga started, and throughout my football life, I've never been able to play them because I've always been in training camp," said Tice, according to the report.

In a Pick 6, bettors are required to select the winning horse in six consecutive races. Thursday's Pick Six at Del Mar began with the third race and ended with the eighth. Tice wagered $128. The winning horse in Race 4 was named Tebowing.

"Sure, there's some luck involved," Tice said. "But I had the form out for two days and handicapped it."
