DEL MAR, Calif.-A three-day pick six carryover of $1,561,987, the largest in track history, will be the focus of Sunday's nine-race card at Del Mar.

Consecutive upsets by Charlie's Moment ($44.20) and Weekend Escape ($49.20) in the seventh and eighth races on Saturday essentially clinched the carryover.

Sunday's pick six covers the fourth through nine races on a program that begins at 2 p.m., Pacific.

There are changes in several of Sunday's pick six races. In the fourth race, a six-furlong race for $16,000 claimers, Driven By Excess and Wilmore are scratched, allowing Axiom to draw in from the also-eligible list. Traffic Update, World War and Gray Black N White are the leading contenders.

The fifth race, run over a mile for $32,000 claimers, will not include Seven Secrets and Propaganda, who were scratched on Saturday. The race lacks a standout. Tap It Light is the 7-2 favorite on the morning line in a field of 12.

The sixth race is a maiden race for older horses over 6 1/2 furlongs. Muny, Hidden Trail, Quick J Finlay, and Blaze N Waggin are scratched. Concerto's Thunder, the mount of leading rider Rafael Bejarano, will be well-backed. Guns on the Table may go favored.

The seventh race is an allowance race over 1 1/16 miles. The field of 10 is led by Informed, who is trained by Doug O'Neill.

The eighth race, the $300,000 Bing Crosby Handicap over six furlongs, features top California sprinter Street Boss, defending champion In Summation, and Barbecue Eddie, the expected pacesetter.

The last race, a maiden claimer over 6 1/2 furlongs, has a field of 12. Ava D and Tiz Ballado are scratched. Twodollarstowin will race with blinkers. Burnt, the mount of Bejarano, will be favored.
