Del Mar Sunday carryover: $239K


DEL MAR, Calif.-A 42-1 upset in Saturday’s seventh race led to a pick six carryover of $239,832 for Sunday’s nine-race program at Del Mar.

With the exception of the five-runner $150,000 Best Pal Stakes for 2-year-olds, the races in Sunday’s pick six have competitive fields.

The pick six begins in the fourth race, a $20,000 claimer for 3-year-olds over six furlongs. Holy Lark, second in a $25,000 claimer on July 28; Las Vegas Lucky, who was claimed for $16,000 from a race he won on July 23; and Movie Fan, who drops from the $32,000 level, are the leading contenders in a field of nine.

The fifth race, a maiden race for 2-year-olds fillies over 5 1/2 furlongs, was reduced to eight starters with the scratch of Wilshire Boulevard. The favorite is likely to be La Mina, who was second in a $100,000 claiming race for maidens on July 19. There will be support for Time Reveals All, a well-beaten second to Freddie Ruth at Hollywood Park on July 11, and County Storm, a Storm Cat filly who was a troubled sixth against maidens at Hollywood Park on June 24.

The sixth race will have 10 runners. Refusal has been scratched from the also-eligible list. The one-mile allowance race on turf includes Ready More, the winner of a $50,000 claimer on turf on July 13, and Swift Winds, who was a troubled fifth in an allowance race on July 23.

One of the largest fields in the pick six is the seventh race, a six-furlong $32,000 claimer for fillies and mares that has drawn 10 runners. Steppin Out Rose, who drew the rail, was scratched.

Dee’s a Legend, Darkness Night and Pieces of Paradise are coming off wins and taking a jump in class. Sneaky Jack is rising from the $25,000 level following a nose loss here on July 20.

The Grade 2 Best Pal Stakes will be run without Slam Slew, a sharp maiden winner in June. He was scratched because of illness. Salute the Sarge and Leonides, the first- and second-place finishers in the Grade 3 Hollywood Juvenile Championship on July 4, are the leading contenders along with Georgie Boy, who won the Graduation Stakes for statebreds here on July 25.

The final race is a maiden race over 1 1/16 miles on turf that drew nine entrants. The first-time starters Patch of Blue and Sir Lowry cannot be dismissed in a weak race. Relentless Pursuit returns from a five-month layoff after two wide trips at Santa Anita in the winter.
