Email

POMONA, Calif. - A 30-1 upset by Roman Commander in the $131,600 Barretts Juvenile on Sunday added to a string of upsets in the pick six at Fairplex Park, where a double carryover of $332,520 is up for grabs Monday.

The carryover is largely due to the weekend exploits of father-son trainers Mel and Gary Stute. Saturday, Mel Stute won the Barretts Debutante with the maiden filly Quick Little Miss ($60.40), which helped create a $75,091 carryover into Sunday.

Sunday in the Barretts Juvenile, the Gary Stute-trained colt Roman Commander ($62) overcame trouble on the far turn and outfinished 1-2 favorite Chief's Magic to win by a half-length.

Matt Garcia rode Roman Commander, who was making his first start since July 15 and the fifth start of his career. Kendall Mann owns the son of Deputy Commander, who ran six and a half furlongs in 1:18.42.

Fairplex officials expect the pick six pool Monday to go well over $1 million. The pick six is on races 6 through 11. The shortest price in the program is even-money favorite Meetmeinthewoods in race 10, the CTBA Marian Stakes.
