Santa Anita pick six carryover of roughly $1.3 million for closing day

Email

ARCADIA, Calif.- Breeders’ Cup fever will give way to pick six fever at Santa Anita on Sunday.

There were no winners of the pick six at Santa Anita on Saturday’s big day of Breeders’ Cup races, leading to a carryover of $1,335,505 million for Sunday’s 10-race program. Track officials said the exact figure of the carryover may not be known until Sunday morning.

The pick six must be paid out on Sunday, the final day of the autumn meeting. As a result, interest will be enormous.

The carryover was announced after Karakontie ($62) won Saturday’s 11th race, the BC Mile. The pick six had one race remaining at that time, the BC Classic.

Sunday's pick six covers the fifth through 10th races on a program that begins at noon Pacific. Racing starts earlier on Sunday because of the end of Daylight Savings Time early Sunday.

There are plenty of horses to consider in Sunday's pick six races. The sequence begins with two maiden races over 6 1/2 furlongs for 2-year-olds - with 12 runners in the fifth race, and 12 fillies in the sixth race. There were 14 entered in the sixth, but two will be scratched early Sunday.

In the fifth race, the first-time starter Dortmund is a lukewarm morning-line favorite at 7-2. Another well-regarded first-time starter Serbian Syclone is highly regarded in the race.

Bob Baffert trains Dortmund, and has the 3-1 favorite in the sixth race on Callback, a first-time starter by Street Sense with quick workouts.

The seventh race is a one-mile starter allowance on turf which drew a field of 12. Hugh Knew, unraced since a second on the synthetic track at Del Mar on Aug. 14; and Bow Tie Belle, the winner of a maiden claimer at Del Mar on Aug. 23, are two leading contenders.

The eighth race is an optional claimer over seven furlongs with a full field of 14. The Baffert-trained Global Hottie breaks from the rail in search of her third consecutive win. She must hold off a late run from Lemon de Oro.

There are only nine fillies and mares in the Grade 2 Goldikova Stakes over a mile on turf, the day's feature race. Filimbi, third in the Grade 1 First Lady Stakes over a mile on turf at Keeneland on Oct. 4, will be favored against the English import Wall of Sound, the four-time stakes winner Pontchatrain, and the Kentucky stakes winner I’m Already Sexy.

The final race of the meeting is a maiden race over seven furlongs that drew 13 entrants. The first-time starter Weapon of War is part of a field led by Alfa Bird, who was beaten a nose in a similar race over six furlongs on Oct. 11.
