ARCADIA, Calif.-Bettors failed to conquer the Santa Anita pick six for the second consecutive day on Saturday, leaving a carryover of $576,330 for Sunday's program.

The pick six covers the fourth through ninth races on Sunday. Here is a glance at the changes and leading contenders for the pick six races:

In the fourth race, a sprint for 3-year-old filly maiden claimers, America's Princess is scratched. Chaos Theory is the 5-2 morning-line favorite.

In the fifth race, the also-eligibles, Love that Lion and Paster's Baby, are scratched from a $45,000 to $50,000 claimer over about 6 1-2 furlongs on the hillside turf course. The race is wide-open. Turkish Prize, who was considered for the Crystal Water Handicap on Sunday, is the 7-2 morning-line favorite, but has 11 opponents.

In the sixth race, Hidden Path is scratched. Run over 6 1-2 furlongs for maiden claimers, the race features nine runners, including Siberian Style (5-2), Eagerness (7-2), and Striking Storm (4-1).

There are no changes in the seventh race, the $100,000 Crystal Water Handicap for California-breds over a mile on turf. Spinelessjellyfish, the multiple stakes winner, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite to beat seven others, including Hugh Hefner and Road to Slew, both of whom have won this race in recent years.

In the eighth race, marathon specialist Golden Ticket is 9-5 to win a starter handicap over 1 1-4 miles. He faces five others, including George Bailey and Nates Colony, both of whom have run well in distance races in the past.

The last race is for maiden claimers and there are no late changes. Apple Juice Tea, trained by Paul Aguirre, is the 3-1 lukewarm favorite in a field of nine.
