You are correct, and it's not just NYRA that requires X number of horses for certain wagers.
However, I would be extremely surprised if they didn't allow trifecta betting in a 6 horse race. 5 horses would probably cause them to drop it. 6 is pretty common, especially at tracks out west like Bay Meadows. I doubt they will allow Superfecta (pick 4) wagering today.
All that being said...the payouts today will probably not be that great unless you see Supervisor in the top 3.
