Email

Chasing a pick six carryover of $130,980, bettors added $1,101,129 to the pool on Saturday.

The first two legs have been quite formful. In the fifth race, the first leg, Miss Peanut ($8.20) pulled clear through the stretch to win a maiden claimer over 5 1-2 furlongs by 7 1-2 lengths over Touch a Dream. Melon Up, the 6-5 favorite, could only finish seventh after racing in traffic on the rail on the backstretch.

In the sixth race, Where's the Remote ($8.40) got an ideal trip under Mike Smith to win an optional claimer over 1 1-16 miles on turf by 3 1-2 lengths over My Boy Walsh. Where's the Remote was favored. Smith had Where's the Remote in mid-pack to the end of the backstretch and rallied wide on the turn before taking control in midstretch.
