Santa Anita pick six payoff: $760,851


ARCADIA, Calif. - Only two tickets were able to isolate all six winners in Saturday's pick six at Santa Anita, and those tickets were each worth a whopping $760,851.80.

No one had hit the pick six the two previous days, leading to a carryover into Saturday's card of $536,394. A parade of longshots Saturday made nailing all six winners extremely challenging. There was only one winning favorite in the six races, and several short-priced favorites, including Olmodavor in the featured San Pasqual Handicap, were defeated.

The two tickets were both purchased through off-track facilities, according to Santa Anita officials. One ticket was purchased in Kentucky, the other in Nevada, but track officials could not be more specific about the exact site of each purchase immediately following the races. It was thought the specific sites would be known by Sunday.

Five out of six in the pick six returned $6,120.
