Oak Tree: Favorite opens pick six

Email

Darling Ciana ($3.40) rallied two-wide through the stretch to win a starter allowance over seven furlongs for 2-year-olds fillies, the first leg of a pick six that began with a carryover of $54,223. Bettors added $340,981 to the pool on Friday.

Darling Ciana was timed in 1:25.77, finishing 1 3-4 lengths in front of Katy's Kitty. Benecia finished third. The stewards conducted an inquiry into the stretch, focusing on an incident when Benecia took up while trying to sneak through a spot between the rail and Katy's Kitty. After a brief review, the order of finish was not changed.
