Del Mar: Cruzin Topless provides upset


Friday's pick six at Del Mar is getting tricky.

In the sixth race, Cruzin Topless ($21.80) led throughout to post an upset in an optional claimer over 6 1-2 furlongs. Trained by Jack Carava and ridden by Joel Rosario, Cruzin Topless was the sixth choice in the betting, and won by 1 1-4 lengths over Serene Sophia, the 5-2 favorite in a field of 10.

Through the first four pick six races, only one favorite, Inverness Cape, won. Late Cuddle, a 2-5 shot in the fifth race, could only fifth, a losing single on many tickets.

The $1 pick 3 ending with Cruzin Topless returned $638.
