Del Mar Friday pick-six carryover is $101K

Email

DEL MAR, Calif. - Losses by four consecutive favorites from the third through sixth races on Thursday has led to a pick six carryover of $101,569 for Friday’s program at Del Mar.

The pick-six carryover was announced after Thursday’s sixth race, with two races remaining.

Friday’s pick six races are the third through eighth on a program that begins at 4 p.m., Pacific. The first pick six race is due off at 5 p.m., Pacific.

Typical of the first few weeks of the meeting, the pick six races have large fields with 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, and 13 starters. The eighth and final race had 13 starters after Thursday’s scratch time, but will have no more than 12 starters by post time.

The scratches for Friday’s races as of Thursday morning were Ebony N Ice in the fourth, Frenemy in the fifth, Myfundsarelo in the seventh, and Regally Soul in the eighth.

One of the shortest prices of the pick six races will be in the third race, the first leg, in Top Knot, who starts in a $20,000 claiming race for maidens over 1 1/16 miles. Top Knot is 2-1 on the morning-line.

The next two races – an $8,000 claimer over six furlongs and a $25,000 claimer over six furlongs – do not have standouts.

The only turf race on Friday is the sixth race, an optional claimer over 1 1 1/16 miles. Zanbo and Market Quote are expected to head the betting.

The $200,000 Real Good Deal Stakes for California-bred 3-year-olds over seven furlongs is the seventh race. Tiz a Minister, the winner of the Grade 3 Affirmed Handicap at Betfair Hollywood Park in June, is expected to go favored, although there will be significant support for Omega Star, who makes his first start for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, having previously been trained by John Shirreffs.

In the final race, a maiden claimer over 5 1/2 furlongs, Concorde West and Hard Play are drawn side-by-side and are expected to be the two shortest prices in the field.

A pick 6 with four claiming races with large fields? No thanks. I got the winners in the other two races, by the way, if anyone wants them. ;)

i wish tote information regarding any bet was not available to anyone, including the mutuel department, until after the races covered by that bet were complete. does anyone else find it obvious that this information finds it's way out of the mutuel department before the races are run? i would prefer that even will-pays not be shown until after the race. the idea that people can be trusted with this information does not even warrant discussion.

THE STEWARDS BETTER GET ON THE BALL..THEY NEED TO HAVE A SINGLE LIST AVAILABLE LIKE THEY DO SCRATCHES FOR 1ST TIME GELDED STARTERS.. (NOT HAVING IT ONLY ON THE PROGRAM IN SMALL PRINT)......I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE ANGLE ..... BUT THEY ARE WINNING REGULARLY THIS PAST WEEK AND PAYING OFF BIG AND F ING UP THE 6...

This is getting JFK'ish. Nobody from DRF will respond to the FTG issue and the Delmar overnight did not list Wine Police as a FTG. After the race TVG/Bray announced FTG and winner Wine Police. Makes you wonder what other informationn is treated in such an arrogant fashion.

I was so pissed after I heard that. I specifically went to Los Alamitos to handicap this morning and get an official program and no where in the program did it have wine Police listed as first time gelding. There were a couple other horses listed, but not WP. I used the others in the pick three and would have used WP if that info was available. It didn't cost me the pick three, but I still want the info.

Since when did the FTG become such a great angle? I wonder if this is just coincidence that they are winning lately?

TVG reported during the post parade that the 5 and 6 were first time geldings in that race. However, this still doesn't help the multirace wager situation when/if you are relying on this information.

Hmmm did you see the 5's speed numbers the FTG was not even needed here.
