Santa Anita: Pick six carryover of $575K for Thursday


ARCADIA, Calif. - A sequence of longshots on Sunday has led to a three-day pick six carryover of $575,466 for Thursday’s eight-race program at Santa Anita.

Upset wins by Cinmars Dance ($31.20) in Sunday’s fourth race, Firendesire ($27) in the sixth, and Tookmebysurprise ($47) in the eighth helped to assure the carryover.

With a three-day run-up, the pool of new money could exceed $3 million on Thursday.

Bettors will have decent-sized fields to consider in Thursday’s pick six races. The pick six covers the third through eighth races on a program that begins at 1 p.m. Pacific. The third through eight races, drawn on Sunday, have fields of 8, 8, 11, 9, 8, and 12.

There are three turf races around two turns, and three races on the main track – two sprints and one around two turns. The final race is for maiden claimers over 5 1/2 furlongs.

Two horses in the pick six races will run as geldings for the first-time – Expo and Fig in the sixth race, and Segway in the seventh race.
