DEL MAR, Calif. - Upset wins by Quinten Boy ($92.60) and Voz de Colegiala ($23.20) on Wednesday has led to a carryover of of $159,263 for Thursday's pick six at Del Mar.

The pick six covers the third through eighth races on Thursday's program, which starts at 2 p.m. The pick six includes four sprints, including one on turf, and two one-mile races, one of which is on turf.

The third race is an optional claimer over a mile. There are only six starters and Power Tripper is the 7-5 favorite on the morning-line.

The fifth race is an optional claimer over five furlongs on turf. Because the inside rails on the turf course are set 14 feet from the permanent position, the field is limited to seven starters. Da Valmont (5-2), Los Solano (7-2) and Billy's Echo (4-1) are the top contenders. The limited field has led to the scratches of F J's Pace, Sex Machine, Hemet Thought and Rocky Bar.

There are nine runners in the fifth race, a maiden claimer for 2-year-old fillies. Bertha Jo, fourth in a maiden special weight on July 25, makes her first appearance for a claiming price, and is 7-5 on the morning-line. The first-time starter Formal Blossom has worked well.

The sixth race is run over six furlongs for 3-year-old claimers. Star Tel is 5-2 on the morning-line in attempt to win his third consecutive start. Ammann, who won a $20,000 claimer last Thursday, jumps to the $32,000 level.

The featured seventh race marks the 2004 debut of The Tin Man, who was fourth in the 2003 Breeders' Cup Turf. The seventh is run over a mile on turf, which may be shorter than The Tin Man would prefer. Stage Player, the winner of the Claiming Crown Emerald Stakes last month, and Hollywood Park allowance race winners Royal Price, Anziyan Royalty and Grafton make the seventh a very competitive race.

The lid-closer has a field of 12 in a maiden claimer over 5 1-2 furlongs for 2-year-olds California-breds. This race may force punters to spread their selections. Time to Sing is 7-2 on the morning-line, having finished second in his debut at Hollywood Park in April. The first-time starters Road to Luck, Daddysangbass and Matt's Memo could attract support.
