Santa Anita: One lucky bettor collects $148,205 in pick six


ARCADIA, Calif. - One winning ticket in Sunday’s pick six at Santa Anita was worth $148,205, a payoff that included the single ticket provision of the $2 bet.

Gianis ($69) won the ninth race, an $8,000 claimer for fillies and mares. Gianis was the only horse in the field of nine that could have produced a single ticket payoff.

If any of the others had won, there would be a carryover into Thursday in the single ticket pool.

Track officials said the winning ticket was purchased for $256 at a racebook location in Laughlin, Nev.

The first five winners of Sunday’s pick six races were Iliad ($6), Miss Sunset ($14), Selcourt ($3.60), Aura Rose ($3.80), and Flamingo Lane ($4.40).
