Santa Anita: Cayanna opens pick 6


Cayanna ($7.40) held off Evasive Charmer to win the first leg of Friday's pick six, which began with a carryover of more than $42,000.

Bettors did not seem overly enthused by the small carryover, adding just $200,055 to the pool. Cayanna won an optional claimer over about 6 1-2 furlongs on the hillside turf course.

Cayanna (Rafael Bejarano) was the second choice in the betting. Race favorite Thisoneforyou, the 2-1 favorite, finished last and was vanned off. The 4-year-old filly was diagnosed with a soft tissue injury to her right foreleg.
