Del Mar carryover at $137,285


DEL MAR, Calif. - For the fourth time in the first seven days of racing at the Del Mar meeting, there is a carryover in the pick six. On Wednesday, no tickets had all six winners, leaving a carryover of $137,285 for Thursday's eight-race program.

The pick six covers the third through eighth races on Thursday. Here is a glance at the changes and leading contenders.

Three of the six races are for maidens and one is run on turf.

The third race is run over six furlongs for maiden claimers. Arctic Fox and Grinding it Out are scratched. Lapidus will be ridden by Matt Garcia and will not wear blinkers. The race lacks a standout. Great White Father is 7-2 on the morning-line, but has not started in nearly 15 months. Of the runners with recent form, Mr. Frost, second on July 6 at Pleasanton, will be well-backed.

In the fourth race, Sailinwithcaptain plunges in class from an optional claimer to a $16,000 claimer for 3-year-olds over six furlongs. Trained by Bob Baffert, Sailinwithcaptain is 9-5 on the morning line. Charmer Baron, third in a $40,000 claimer on June 22, will be well-backed.

The fifth race is run over six furlongs for maiden California-bred fillies and mares. Fresal and Dancer Memo are scratched, but there are still 11 starters. Well-bred first-time starter Theresa's Memo will attract support along with Legend in Disguise and Brite Betty who were placed in their last starts. Tender Teen, a first-time starter trained by Julio Canani, may be hurt by her wide draw.

There are four scratches in the sixth race ? Razik, Forward March, Royal Footage and Presidio Heights. Run over six furlongs for $45,000 to $50,000, the race has 10 runners. Quinton's Gold, third for $80,000 on June 27, makes his first start for trainer Mike Mitchell. Popular, who has kept good company in the last year without winning, returns for trainer Bob Baffert.

The seventh race is more like a stakes than an allowance race over a mile on turf for fillies and mares. The stakes winners Super High, Little Treasure, Chercheuse, Coray, Crazy Ensign and Sentimental Value start in a wide-open race.

In the finale, Super Shinkansen and Woodbuck are scratched. There are 12 entrants in a maiden race for claimers over 1 1/16 miles. All Cat and Tribal Trick, second in maiden claimers at Hollywood Park, will be well-supported to end lengthy losing streaks.
