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


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.

Breeders cup pick 6 should have a mandatory payout on b.c. day thats the only reason i played it.because thats how its was in the past.that wont happen next year.i hit 4 out of 6 so i was not collecting anyway.but still. as for the stewards at santa anita they just made a mockery of their job.what a joke.i say fire them they have no credibility.and in this game credibility is everything. i have no confidence that i will be treated fairly by the clowns at santa anita.

SoCal stewards have been terrible for many years, they just had a much larger audience to display their work. I hope this signals their end.

Take note that out the top 15 handicappers in the country who pick horses for a living in the DRF - 8 did not have a single winner on the card while 7 only had one winner each, (5 of those were Judy's Beauty, not a tough pick). No one was sharp enough to even pick 2 winners on the card.

Great post! Nobody ever seems to keep score on these things. Just shows how tough this game is day in and day out.

A great observation, Roger! I posted a previous comment concerning DRF+ ... to be influenced (touted) by drf analysts and lose is bad; to PAY to be touted and lose is masochism. I won't pay a cent to read their opinions! I will buy data file, I will buy Formulator. On the greatest stage they had to to showcase it's value, DRF+ is exposed for what it is. Garbage!

Did you state that wrong. They have to pay it out as there are no more races

I should add that Mike Smith should have recognized that he lost several lengths of forward motion and settled to regroup on the rail. Distance races always have tiring horses that drift off the rail. Going wide eliminated a possible win after such AN OBVIOUS CASE OF A DISQUALIFICATION. SANTA ANITA STEWARDS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED. FILE AN APPEAL WITH THE CHRB.

Bayern should have been DQ'd. The Stewards should be investigated. When a horse wipes out two horses completely at the start it is a no brainer. I have no idea what political pressure results in such incompetent application of the rules. I grew up in the Jock's Room and did Pan Camera and Tape Replay for Stewards. This is the most impossible bad call I have ever witnessed in my life in horse racing. I do not wager on horse racing and do not own any horses, or have any involvement in Santa Anita Park. If I was the owner of the other horses I would appeal the Stewards' decision immediately. It seems to me the Stewards' wilted under the pressure of the spotlight. How embarrassing.

typical the crooks rule again . clearly the horse should have come downhe interfered with 4 other horses. it does not matter where it occurred bumping is bumping . if you got slammed in the gut at the start of a track race could you recover in time to beat some one equal to you. HELL NO. I am done with the horse game.

Does anyone remember Victor Espinoza forcing Shared Belief wide 5 weeks ago? And who trained the horse Victor was riding that day? And who trained Bayern today? Coincidence???

A joke. Baffert walks. If it was an east coast or EU horse it comes down. Killed the pace scenario and the favorite. The worst horse race EVER.
