Santa Anita: Friday card features $226,900 carryover in pick five, $44,521 pick-six carryover


ARCADIA, Calif. – For the first time at the current winter-spring meeting, there is a pick-five carryover of $226,900 for Friday’s eight-race program at Santa Anita. There also is a carryover for Friday in the pick six of $44,521.

Upset wins by Just Win Baby ($59.60) and Kessabtsi ($54.60) and no winning favorites led to the carryover in the 50-cent bet.

The pick five covers the first five races each day. The pool should exceed $1 million in new money.

Friday, the bet begins with a $25,000 claimer over 61/2 furlongs. Valentine Boy is the 8-5 favorite on the morning line in a field of seven.

The second race is a maiden special weight race over 6 1/2 furlongs led by Wild Media and Candy’s Jewel.

In the third, a maiden claimer over a mile on turf, Joelito is scratched from the full field.

The fourth race is a $10,000 claimer over seven furlongs. Roll Your Eyes, who drew the outside in the field of nine, is the 7-2 favorite on the morning line.

The fifth race is a 10-runner maiden race on the hillside turf course. Speedy Vixen is withdrawn in a race led by Puff Pastry.
