$88K carryover incentive to brave storm


ARCADIA, Calif. -- Santa Anita is expected to be hit with a significant rainstorm on Friday, but those who brave the conditions, or at least find a warm place in a simulcast facility or near a computer, can try to get hot for six races and take down the pick six, which is seeded by a carryover of $88,566.01, the result of no one hitting the bet on Thursday.

 There are eight races scheduled for Friday, with first post at 1 p.m. Pacific. The pick six begins with the third race, scheduled for shortly after 2 p.m.

 The pick six on Friday appears fairly challenging, with large fields and several inscrutable races. There are only seven runners in the featured seventh race, but there are at least 10 horses entered in four of the other five races.
