Santa Anita: $88,000 pick six carryover to greet bettors Thursday


ARCADIA, Calif. - The new racing week at Santa Anita will begin on Thursday with a pick six carryover of $88,542. The carryover was confirmed after Boller Bomb ($32) and Warren’s Goldie ($13.40) won the sixth and seventh races on Sunday.

Thursday’s pick six covers the third through eighth race on a program that begins at 1 p.m. Pacific. The Thursday program is the first day of a four-race racing week that includes Saturday’s Santa Anita Derby program.

Thursday’s pick six attracted fields of 7, 6, 8, 8, 8 and 10. The final race, a maiden claimer over five furlongs for 3-year-olds, drew 12 entrants, but will be limited to 10 runners.

The top race on Thursday is the seventh race, an optional claimer on the hillside turf course which drew a field of eight.
