DEL MAR, Calif. - The first carryover of the Del Mar meeting highlights Thursday's eight-race program.

A string of tricky longshots was difficult to find during Wednesday's pick six, leaving a carryover of $138,781 for Thursday.

Thursday's pick six covers the third through eighth races, including three sprints on dirt, a route on dirt and two races on turf.

Here is a glance at the changes, as of scratch time on Wednesday.

In the third race, a sprint for $9,000 to $10,000 claimers over 6 1/2 furlongs, Caesar DeAlba rides the longshot Proud Alvin, while Iggy Puglisi rides Dotage. Aggressive is the 7-2 mild favorite on the morning-line.

Shadow of Mine and Sweet Lips are scratched from the fourth race, an allowance race over 1 1/16 miles on turf. Sagitta Ra, trained by Bobby Frankel, is a standout in a field of 10 3-year-old fillies.

In the fifth race, Call Sign Maverick and Meeting Ended are scratched from a maiden claimer over 5 1/2 furlongs for California-bred 2-year-old maidens. Capers Town, trained by A.C. Avila, and Epic Commander, trained by Jeff Bonde, are top contenders. Bob Baffert starts Domestic Security.

There are no changes in the sixth race, a one-mile starter allowance. Crash McGoon is the 5-2 favorite on the morning-line, a slight favorite over Sunrise Event (7-2) and Sultan Bey (9-2).

The featured seventh race is a $58,000 allowance race over a mile on turf. Jipapibaquigrafo, Hickory Pete and Chubasco Red are scratched, leaving Royal Stamp as the morning-line favorite. Pittsburgh City is another contender, but is drawn on the outside.

The final race is a six-furlong maiden race for state-bred fillies and mares. Catch the Joy is scratched, allowing Waving Flags to draw into the race from the also-eligible list.

Bettors will focus on Strut Your Stuff, Powerful Sister, Light Given and Waving Flags in an open race.
