Email

POMONA, Calif. – Order was restored Wednesday evening at Los Angeles County Fair, where the pick six that began with a $214,764 triple carryover finally was hit.

Bettors poured $1,165,895 into the pick six, which returned $25,817.80 to 32 winning tickets.

While form settled on the twilight card, the Fairplex jockey colony went into disarray. Martin Pedroza, the track’s all-time leader with 691 wins, went down in a spill in race 7 and was transported to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center for X-rays.

Pedroza did not ride his two remaining mounts Wednesday; his condition was unavailable as of 8:30 p.m. Pacific time. Pedroza, 47, has led the Fairplex meet 13 straight years.

The spill occurred on the first turn of the five-eighths mile track, where Pedroza’s mount, Warren’s Tyler S., appeared to drift out and clip heels with Slippery Slewp. No horses went down, nor were any other riders unseated.

The highest win payoff in the pick six sequence was race 10 winner Brereton Park ($14.40). The sequence included one winning favorite in the featured ninth race. The winning payoffs in the pick six were $7.80, $10, $13.20, $7, $3.60, and $14.40.

Carving ($3.60) won the $50,000 C.B. Afflerbaugh by three and one-quarter lengths over Monument. Lovmeister, Fighting Hussar, and Bubba Fizz completed the order of finish in the seven-furlong race for 2-year-olds. The time was 1:24.62.

Martin Garcia rode Carving for trainer Bob Baffert. The son of Any Given Saturday, owned by Baffert’s wife, Jill, and champion skier Bode Miller, is now 2-for-2. He won his debut at Del Mar in an $80,000 maiden-claimer.

Edwin Maldonado won three races to open a 9-6 lead over Juan Hernandez in the jockey race while Pedroza had one winner on the card and has five for the meet.

Racing resumes Thursday at Fairplex Park. First post is 1 p.m.
