Santa Anita carryover reaches $369,815


ARCADIA, Calif. - There is a two-day carryover of $369,815 for Saturday's 10-race program at Santa Anita.

The pick six has not been hit since Wednesday.

The carryover is part of an outstanding program that includes two important stakes - the $100,000 Sham Stakes for 3-year-olds (the seventh race) and the $300,000 for 4-year-olds (the ninth race). Both are part of the pick six.

The pick six begins with the fifth race, run over six furlongs for $14,000 to $16,000 claimers.

Indiaman and Aaronasher are scratched, leaving a field of 12. In an open race, Afternoon in Rio (7-2), Kid Ralston (9-2) and Haint You Grand (5-1) lead the field.

The sixth race is the first two of turf races in the pick six. Run over about 6 1/2 furlongs on the hillside turf course, the sixth race is for 3-year-old maidens. The race has drawn 11 runners, including the French import Shining Energy. He is listed at 5-2 on the morning-line, but is likely to be a much shorter price. The first time-starter Pink Coral and Placid Lake will also attract support.

The Sham Stakes has drawn a field of 11. Giacomo, second in the Hollywood Futurity in December, will be favored. He is 3-1 on the morning-line. But Giacomo faces a tough test, including the unbeaten Uncle Denny, the stakes-placed Iced Out, and the sprint stakes winner Going Wild.

The eighth race is run over a mile on turf for 3-year-olds. Kfar Daniel, second in his California debut on Jan. 23, will go favored, but is not a standout against a field that includes Ulistnintome, and Fongstastic.

The Strub Stakes is led by Rock Hard Ten, the winner of the Malibu Stakes on Dec. 26. He is likely to be the shortest price in the pick six. A bad day by Rock Hard Ten could lead to a win by Love of Money, Good Reward, and Imperialism, all major stakes winners in 2004.

The final race is run over seven furlongs for maiden claimers. Freedom Class is scratched, leaving 13 runners. Agorein, who drew post 12, and Kay Max, who starts from post 2, are two leading contenders.

First post is at noon.
