DEL MAR, Calif. - No one was able to isolate all six winners in the Pick Six on a challenging Labor Day card on Monday at Del Mar, resulting in a carryover of $252,901 into Wednesday's card.

Wednesday's card has eight races, so the Pick Six will begin with the third. The card has moderate sized fields, but the quality is above-average for a weekday card.

The third, for older maidens at one mile, includes Saint Buddy, who showed speed in his debut in a highly rated race, and Johnny Red Kerr, a $1.4 million yearling who is making his debut off a series of fast drills for trainer Laura de Seroux.

The fourth, an optional-claimer for 3-year-old fillies at one mile on turf, includes Final Discount, who was second in a similar spot earlier this meet, and the returning Alashir's World and A Ma Guise, both of whom displayed plenty of promise last year at age 2.

The fifth, a six-furlong maiden-claiming event, should find Centerpiece as the favorite with a drop from a straight maiden event.

The sixth, the Generous Portion Stakes for California-bred 2-year-old filly sprinters, might offer the shortest price in the Pick Six sequence in Dirty Diana, who was second to the highly regarded Tizdubai in the Grade 2 Sorrento Stakes on Aug. 9.

The seventh, an optional-claimer at one mile on turf, finds Logician taking a huge class drop after facing stakes runners in recent starts. Target Shoot and Desert Boom appear to be the best of those with current form.

The finale, a six-furlong maiden-claimer for older runners, is topped by Worldly Reason, who was second in a fast race for the level on Aug. 21. Also of note are first-time starter Remonte, the comebacking Sutter Street, and the speedy Society Sal.
