Pick six carryover at $146,530


DEL MAR, Calif. - Pick six interest will be high at Del Mar on Saturday, with a head start of a $146,530 carryover from Friday.

The pick six covers the fifth through 10th races on a 10-race program that begins at 2 p.m., Pacific. Approximate post time for the fifth race is 4:05 p.m.

The pick six includes three sprints, two route races and one route on turf.

The fifth race is a seven-furlong claiming race that has drawn eight entrants. Beyond Brilliant and Potrisunrise are top contenders in a competitive race.

In the sixth race, Venture Cat and Bay Street Boy are scratched, leaving 10 runners in a one-mile race for $10,500 to $12,500 claimers. Hot Market, once a stakes-calibre state-bred, breaks from the rail and is the 5-2 morning-line favorite. Charming Boy, who breaks from post 2, is 3-1.

The seventh race is a $58,000 allowance race over 1 1-16 miles. Brands Hatch, trained by Eoin Harty, and Och Tamale, trained by Jeff Mullins, are top contenders along with Lindero and the entry of Flag to Fly and Saturday Deelites.

The eighth race is the Wickerr Handicap over a mile on turf. Buddy Gil, the 2003 Santa Anita Derby winner, tries for his first stakes win of the year, but must beat Needwood Blade and Seinne, who have raced in stakes this year.

In the ninth race, Exotic Elegance and Mystery Mountain are scratched from a six-furlong maiden race for fillies and mares. The race has 11 entrants, including the first-time starter Evangelizer; Glamour Cat, who has not started since last September; and Kalahari Cat, who was close in sprints earlier this year.

In the final race, Little Foxy Baby and Taylor's Series are scratched from a six-furlong race for $18,000 to $20,000 claimers. Of the 11 remaining entrants, Queen Irish (5-2), Home Tour (4-1) and Charlize (9-2) are leading contenders.
