Santa Anita: Mega Heat springs upset

Email

Mega Heat ($28.60) rallied wide to win Saturday's eighth race, the first outsider to win a leg of Saturday's lucrative pick six.

Ridden by Joe Talamo, Mega Heat finished a half-length in front of Irish Art in the field of 11. Mr. Make Believe, the even-money favorite, finished ninth, fading from contention in the final furlong.

The pick six drew a pool of $504,455, in pursuit of a carryover of more than $60,000 from Friday's opening day of the Santa Anita Autumn meeting.

In the first two legs of the pick six, Zazu ($5.80), the second betting choice, edged Ulta Blend. In the Goodwood Stakes, favored Game On Dude ($4.20) won by a half-length over 5-1 Awesome Gem.
