Del Mar: Pick-six carryover of $238,499 for Wednesday


DEL MAR, Calif. – There is a pick-six carryover of $238,499 for Wednesday’s eight-race program at Del Mar, a carryover created when the stewards disqualified the original winner of Sunday’s ninth race.

Cosmic Heat (6-1) was the first to reach the wire in Sunday’s ninth race but was disqualified and placed third behind Centenario de Oro ($58.40) and Fighting On after the stewards ruled that Fighting On lacked sufficient running room in the final sixteenth.

If Cosmic Heat had won, there would not have been a carryover.

Aside from the pick-six carryover, there is a carryover of $46,740 in the 50-cent super high five, which is conducted on the day’s final race.

Wednesday’s program begins at 2 p.m. Pacific. The pick six covers the third through eighth races, with the first pick-six race starting at approximately 3 p.m.

The pick-six races drew large fields and are comprised of a maiden race over a mile on turf, a six-furlong sprint for $8,000 claimers, a maiden claimer for 2-year-old fillies over 5 1/2 furlongs, an optional claimer over a mile, the $90,000 Wickerr Stakes over a mile on turf, and a maiden claimer over 1 1/16 miles.

The Wickerr Stakes drew an oversubscribed field of 11 but will have a safety limit of 10 starters. The strong field includes the stakes winners Indy Point, My Best Brother, Chips All In, Wilkinson, and Second City.
