INGLEWOOD, Calif. - No one hit the Pick Six on Tuesday, the opening-day of Hollywood Park's fall meeting, so there is a carryover of $90,654.45 for the next day of racing here, Thursday. Wednesday is a dark day.

The Pick Six on Thursday encompasses races three through eight. Most of the fields are small, and several have short-priced favorites who look difficult to oppose.

Here is a brief review of those Thursday races:

3rd - Sarafan is using this race as a prep for the Japan Cup. He is facing a field of horses who are either overmatched, coming off extended layoffs, or both. He figures to be a single on most tickets.

4th - A drop in class and a return to her favorite track makes Alpine Singer the tepid choice in this mid-level claimer. Words In Poetry beat maiden-claimers last time, but did it in strong fashion. Plus Three merits an outside look, if you can ignore her last race, which was on turf, and her race prior to that, in which she encountered trouble at Fairplex.

5th - The highly regarded Lady Anneliese was an impressive winner in her first start in this country for Frankel and should be a short price here. Reefs Sis has been facing strong allowance fields and beat a fairly decent group last time by four lengths.

6th - A large field of bottom-level claimers gives this race some potential to get a price in this Pick Six sequence. Winthrop Joe flashed high speed against better last time. Reality Check makes his first start since being claimed by Spawr. Seven Jillion is the obvious favorite considering his good form against much better, but the drop is suspicious. Dotage drops for Hess, but retains Espinoza, who won with him here last year.

7th - F.J.'s Pace is a terror in these turf sprints. Old pro is 16 for 56, 11 for 29 on grass. Ecstatic was second by only a half-length to F.J.'s Pace at Santa Anita three weeks ago. Glick is the first California starter for owner Michael Gill. Glick won a turf sprint at Monmouth in September.

8th - Soft field of maiden-claimers. Zero Visibility ran against slightly better in his debut. Should benefit by the experience. Jerry Dutton does quite well with his homebreds, so give Black Tie Classic a look. Happy Yodeler has finished second six times; might break through one of these days.
