Santa Anita: Pick 6 is tricky

Email

Monday's pick six has proven to be tricky in the early races, with a longshot and a 7-2 shot winning the first two legs. The bet attracted a pool of $205,798 on Monday.

In the first leg, Granite Girl ($23.40) rallied from just behind the leaders to catch Beautiful American in the final strides of a claimer over 1 1-8 miles on turf.

In the second leg, a maiden race for statebreds, Warren's Knockout ($9.60) pulled clear to win by 4 1-4 lengths over 11-1 Denny the Great. Jack Reacher, the 2-1 favorite, finished third.
