$400K carryover at Del Mar


DEL MAR, Calif. - There is a massive one-day pick six carryover of $427,333 for Del Mar's pick six on Monday, courtesy of a guaranteed pool that was reached on Sunday, but failed to get taken down because of a slew of longshot winners.

The guaranteed pool was $750,000, but upsets, including that of Richard's Kid in the Pacific Classic, prevented anyone from stringing together all six winners. So, there is a huge amount seeding the pick six for Monday.

There is a 10-race card at Del Mar on Monday, so the pick six will begin with the fifth race. The day's feature is the eighth race, the Grade 1, $300,000 Del Mar Futurity. Trainer Bob Baffert, who had a huge day on Sunday with Richard's Kid in the Pacific Classic and Zensational winning the Pat O'Brien, sends out the morning-line favorite in the Futurity, Lookin At Lucky.

After racing on Monday, Del Mar is off Tuesday and returns for closing day on Wednesday. There will be a mandatory payout in the pick six on Wednesday. With big fields on Monday, it is not inconceivable that there could be a two-day carryover into Wednesday, with the mandatory payout applicable.
