PICK SIX CARRYOVER OF $62,768 INTO SUNSHINE SATURDAY
ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 29, 2010)—Saturday’s Sunshine Millions program got a little sweeter on Friday, as no one correctly tabbed six winners in Santa Anita’s Pick Six, resulting in a carryover of $62,768 into Saturday.
Jockey Chantal Sutherland got the carryover bandwagon in gear, as she booted home longshot Egypt in the third race at odds of 11-1. Trained by Hector Palma and owned by BG Stable, Giardino or Royalty Stable, the 4-year-old English-bred colt paid $24.80 to win.
The high-priced dust settled somewhat in race four, as Life by R R scored under Tyler Baze, returning $6.40 to win. Trained by Doug O’Neill, the 4-year-old Maryland-bred filly by Domestic Dispute is owned by Westside Rentals.Com, Margolis and Sarno.
Jockey Victor Espinoza maintained his hot hand in race five, as Sweet Hanni prevailed, paying $8.60 to win. Bred in Kentucky by Ron Waranch, she is owned by his estate and is trained by Vladimir Cerin.
Cerin made it two in a row in the sixth race as his Folk Dance, under recent Eclipse Award winning apprentice Christian Santiago Reyes, got home on top, paying $24.80 to win. A 3-year-old Florida-bred filly by Forest Camp, she is owned by Slow-Pay Stable.
Friday’s seventh race went to Andina, a 3-year-old Irish-bred filly, who gave Joe Talamo his second riding win of the day. Andina, who is owned by Arnold Zetcher and is trained by Ben Cecil, paid $8.00 to win.
There were no live Pick Six tickets going into the eighth race, which was won by the solid 2-1 favorite, Golden Horizon. Ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer David Bernstein, the 3-year-old California-bred gelding by Formal Gold is owned by Howard, Munaretto, Poppler and partners.
Santa Anita’s Sunshine Millions program will offer fans an 11-race card on Saturday, with special early first post time at 11:30 a.m. The Pick Six will cover races six through 11.
