Santa Anita: Carryover of $207K for Sunday's pick five
ARCADIA, Calif. - There is a carryover of $207,240 for Sunday's 50-cent pick five, the first time the popular low-takeout bet has had a carryover at Santa Anita.
Saturday, a string of longshots led to only three horses being covered in the final leg of the pick five. None of the first three finishers of that race -- Monument, Ballard Ruler and Star Rocker -- was covered in the pick five.
The pick five has been a popular bet since first introduced at Betfair Hollywood Park in April 2011. The bet has a takeout of just 14 percent, much lower than the 23.68 percent for popular multi-race bets such as the pick four and pick six.
The pool for Sunday's pick 5 is likely to exceed $1 million.
Carryovers in the pick five are rare. There was one at Hollywood Park, during the 2011 spring-summer meeting, and one at Del Mar earlier this year.
There were two early scratches on Saturday in Sunday's pick five races. In the fourth race, for maiden 2-year-olds on the hillside turf course, Neil Healy will not run. In the fifth race, for maiden claimers over 6 1/2 furlongs, Bull Rush will not start.
The pick five races have fields of 7, 6, 7, 11 and 10 runners.
The first race, for maiden California-breds over a mile on turf, is an open race with several leading contenders, including Spring Bloom, Sudden Sunday, and Northern Flight.
In the second race, Candy Waltz will be a strong favorite to win a $25,000 claimer over six furlongs.
The third race, for 2-year-olds, has seven $25,000 claimers over six furlongs. Bubba Fizz and K Court figure to dominate the betting, and appear on many tickets.
The 11 maiden 2-year-olds in the fourth race are led by Power Ped, although Anytime, Zippingaroundtown and One Firm Cat will merit support.
In the fifth race for maiden claimers, Chloe W is a lukewarm favorite.
