Here are the ARCI Model Rules that Santa Anita Park is using to govern its new Pick 6.

• The “major” share, which is 70% of the day’s pool, will be paid to tickets which correctly selected the winner in all 6 races. If no ticket correctly selects the winner in all 6 races the “major” share will carry over to the next day.

• The “minor” share, which is 15% of the day’s pool, will be paid to tickets which had the next greatest number of correct selections. The “minor” share is paid out every day.

• The “unique” share, which is 15% of the day’s pool, will be paid if only one ticket holder correctly selected the winner in all 6 races. If no or multiple tickets correctly selected the winner in all 6 races, the “unique” share will carry over to the next day. “Unique” means that there is one and only one winning ticket that correctly selected the winner in each of the Pick 6 contests.

 If multiple winning Pick 6 combinations are placed on the same ticket, and that is the only ticket selecting all 6 winners, that ticket is still considered “unique.” Scratch and surface changes are examples of an event that can lead to a ticket having multiple correct winning Pick 6 combinations.

Santa Anita Park requested and received permission from the CHRB as follows:

1. On any mandatory distribution payout date:

a. The payout distribution method which is used every other day will still be used; provided, however,

b. In the event that there is no unique winning ticket, that day’s unique share, as well as any applicable carryover, will be paid to ticket holders who correctly selected the winner in each of the races included in the Pick 6; provided further that,

c. In the event that on such mandatory distribution payout date there is no ticket which correctly selected the winner in each of the Pick 6 races, that day’s “major” share, and any carryover, and that day’s “unique” share, and any carryover, (as well as the day’s “minor” share) will be paid to the ticket holders who correctly selected the winner of the greatest number of races included in the Pick 6.

In order to avoid any doubt, on any approved mandatory distribution payout date, the “minor” share (i.e. 5 of 6) will be paid out like it is on all other days of the meet.

2. On any day in which there is a surface change after the Pick 6 pool has closed:

a. The payout distribution method which is used every other day will still be used if there is a unique ticket.

b. If there is no unique winning ticket, the day’s unique share will be added to the “major” share and will either be paid to the ticketholders that correctly selected the winner in each of the races included in the Pick 6 or if there is no such ticket, it would then be added to the “major” share carryover.

c. The changed leg(s), i.e. the races that changed surface, are declared a “Win All.”
