Santa Anita carryover reaches $113,926


ARCADIA, Calif. - The pick six at Santa Anita on Saturday features a carryover of $113,926.

On Friday, many tickets were out of contention after the first leg, which was won by Medinaceli ($101.60).

Saturday's pick six covers the fifth through 10th races on a card that begins at 12:30 p.m.

There are only a few changes in Saturday's pick six races.

In the fifth race, a maiden race over about 6 1-2 furlongs on turf, Sterny is scratched. Symbolic Times, second by a neck in a similar race on Feb. 9, will go favored in a field of 11. Hurricane Megan, third in her debut on Feb. 17, is another top contender along with Stragetic Move, who has been second in two starts.

There are no changes in the sixth race, the $75,000 San Pedro Stakes for 3-year-olds over 6 1-2 furlongs.

The field of nine is led by Rojo Toro, the unbeaten winner of the San Rafael Stakes earlier this month. He is the 5-2 morning line favorite to stretch his winning streak to 4. King Robyn (7-2), Eye of the Tiger (4-1) and Our Bobby V. (4-1) are other top contenders.

The seventh and eighth races are around two turns.

The seventh is run over a mile on turf for $45,000 to $50,000 claimers. Don't Holler is scratched, leaving 11 starters. Trainer Wally Dollase has the first two betting choices in Sumati (7-2) and I've Decided (9-2). Both horses have won claiming races on turf at this meeting.

The eighth race is a $61,000 optional claimer over 1 1-16 miles on the main track. Tough Game, who was considered for the San Carlos Handicap earlier this month, will try to make amends for a sixth-place finish in the Tokyo City Handicap two weeks ago. The 4-year-old Tough Game has won 2 of 5 starts. He will be ridden by Gary Stevens, who was aboard for the colt's career debut, a maiden race here in March 2002.

Many pick six tickets will feature few selections from the ninth race, the $150,000 Santa Ana Handicap for fillies and mares over 1 1-8 miles on turf.

Megahertz, the winner of the Honeymoon Breeders' Cup Handicap last spring and the runner-up in the San Gorgonio Handicap in January, will be heavily favored. Bettors must also consider Garden in the Rain, who finished a game second in the Buena Vista Handicap on Feb. 17.

The last race is for maiden claimers over 5 1-2 furlongs. Joe Leo is scratched. The top contenders are Gaelic Ladd (3-1), the entry of Happy and Hasty and Search and Rescue (4-1) and Goal (5-1).
