Santa Anita carryover at $113,625


ARCADIA, Calif.-Two surprise winners on Thursday have led to a carryover of $113,625 for Friday's eight-race program at Santa Anita.

The pick six covers the third through eighth races, with the third race due off at 2:04 p.m.

Three of the six races are for maidens. Here are the changes as of scratch time on Thursday.

The third race, for 3-year-old maidens, is run on the hillside turf course. Live Free and Plug Me In are scratched, leaving a field of 12. Seastate and Miracle Hill are the leading contenders.

The fourth race is a maiden claimer over a mile. Diamond Hondo, the mount of Garrett Gomez, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite, a slight choice over Lahuna (Victor Espinoza).

The program does not feature large fields; there are eight starters in the fifth race, a six-furlong race for California-bred $9,000 to $10,000 claimers. Sumthinbad and Pearls 'n' Satin are the top contenders.

The sixth race is the $75,000 La Zanzara Handicap for fillies and mares over 1 1-4 miles on turf. In an open race of six, the New Zealand-bred Eternal Melody seeks her first U.S. stakes win, but must beat Stage Shy, who is trained by Neil Drysdale.

The seventh race is a sprint for 3-year-olds over six furlongs. The optional claimer is led by Fletchers Cove, who drew the rail in a field of seven.

The eighth race is run over 6 1-2 furlongs for California-bred maiden claimers. The field of 11 lacks a standout. Irish Mafia and Rebellious will be well-backed.
