Del Mar: Pick-six carryover of $182,318 for Sunday's card


DEL MAR, Calif. – The pick-six carryovers continue at Del Mar.

After two-day carryovers on Aug. 26 and Friday, there is a one-day carryover of $182,318 for Sunday’s 11-race program.

Considering the size of the fields of Sunday’s pick-six races, the bet may be tough to hit. The pick-six races have fields of 10, 9, 10, 10, 12, and 10. The final four races actually have more entrants, but there are safety limits of 10 or 12 starters, depending on the distances. Late scratches in those races will be announced Sunday morning.

The carryover was confirmed after Saturday’s 10th race, when the 9-1 shot Press Baron pulled an upset. There were wins in the first two pick-six races Saturday by the outsiders Pack Your Bags ($42.60) and Dirty Swagg ($21.80).

Sunday’s pick six covers the sixth through 11th races on a program that begins at 2 p.m. Pacific. Post time for the first pick-six race is 4:35 p.m.

As of Saturday morning, there was only one early scratch in the pick-six races – Bornatthetrack in the sixth race, for 2-year-old maidens over 5 1/2 furlongs.

There are two stakes in the pick-six sequence – the Adoration Stakes for fillies and mares over a mile and the Del Mar Derby over 1 1/8 miles on turf.

The Adoration Stakes, the seventh race, is led by the multiple stakes winner Briecat, the 3-1 favorite on the morning line. Miss Mittagong, third in the Grade 1 Santa Margarita Stakes at Santa Anita in March, is another contender at 7-2.

The Del Mar Derby is the ninth race. The Maryland shipper Howe Great starts from the outside post and is a 7-2 lukewarm choice on the morning line. The stakes winners My Best Brother, Midnight Crooner, and Old Time Hockey will merit support.
