Friday’s pick six covers the third through eighth race on a program with short fields. As a result, there are a few standouts in the sequence. In the third race, Autumn View, the mount of leading rider Rafael Bejarano, is the 6-5 favorite on the morning line in a field of six maidens on the hillside turf course.

The fourth race is a starter allowance over 6 1/2 furlongs with a field of seven.

There are three turf races in Friday’s pick six. The fifth race is an allowance race for California-breds on the hillside turf course. Jet Warrior is the 8-5 favorite against six rivals, including Bettys Bambino, an impressive winner of his debut earlier at this meeting.

Bejarano could have a big day on Friday. Aside from Autumn View and Xuang Feng, he rides Boyett in the seventh, an optional claimer over 1 1/4 miles on turf. Mambo Man, Lime Rickey, Deep Play and Woodmans Luck have chances in the turf marathon.

The only column on the front page not designated DRF+. DRF, you are really not helping yourself. Many of us have already shifted much of our spending to your competitors. You need to retain customers through goodwill not petty tactics.

It will only pay 10k. I love Santa Anita, but this huge carryover with such small field gives fuel to conspiracy theorist. No more then 8 horses in any race. A Maiden Claiming race with only 8 horses that's weird

Nice handicapping, know you would have liked more, but that consolation payout was a good score on a 196$ ticket. Once again, good on you.
