Hollywood: Dancing at Dark opens pick 6


Dancing At Dark, the second choice in the betting, rallied from a stalking position to win Thursday's third race, the first leg of a lucrative pick six.

Dancing At Dark ($9) finished 1 1-4 lengths in front of Fifth Dimension, running a mile on turf in 1:35.54. Triple Action, the 6-5 favorite, faded to finish last in the field of six after racing in second on the backstretch.

The pick six began with a carryover of $117,269 from Sunday. Bettors added $782,709 on Thursday.

There were three claims for $40,000 in the race - Dancing at Dark and Special Kid, the fourth-place finisher, were claimed by Jack Carava. Triple Action was claimed by Jerry Hollendorfer. Special Kid's saddle slipped slightly during the race, according to jockey Martin Pedroza.
