Oak Tree: Money right on Bertran Hill


In Sunday's sixth race, Bertran Hill, a 6-1 chance on the morning-line, was bet down to the 5-2 favorite and rallied wide in the stretch to win a $12,500 claimer by 1 3-4 lengths over Good Brother, who also reached contention from off the pace.

Bertran Hill, trained by Ed Moger, was the first short-priced winner of Sunday's pick six in the third leg of the bet. Earlier, Mega Heat ($15.40) won the first division for maiden statebreds, and Shesoprovocative ($24.20) won the second leg for $40,000 claimer over six furlongs on turf.

The pick six pool reached $147,855. Sunday is the eighth day of the meeting and there has yet to be a pick six carryover.

Purse Luva did not finish the sixth race, which was run over 6 1-2 furlongs. He was running at the back of the field when he appeared to duck out, unseating jockey Julio Garcia, who was not injured.

Warren's Dove, who led briefly before finishing fourth, was claimed for $12,500 by Peter Miller.
