Santa Anita: Pick six starts with nose win


Mr Tokyo, the second choice in the betting, won Thursday's third race by a nose in the first leg of a pick six that began with a carryover of $74,482. Bettors added $533,561 to the pool on Thursday.

Mr Tokyo ($5.80) finished a nose in front of 7-1 Intuitive Nature in the maiden race on the hillside turf course. The race featured just five starters. Padre Jon, High Way Sixty Six and Prince of Gotham were scratched early Thursday. Perfect Envoy was scratched a few minutes to post time after failing to warm up properly, according to track stewards.

Mr Tokyo, who was making the second start of his career, was ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer Jamie Lloyd.
