ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 31, 2016)–Purchased for just $108.00, one lucky ticket took down the entire Pick Six pool Saturday at Santa Anita, resulting in a payoff of $313,208. The total money paid out included $212,103 that had accumulated in the Single Ticket Jackpot pool through the first four days of racing this winter and $155,854 in “new” Pick Six money wagered on Saturday.
Purchased by an as-yet unidentified patron through TVG, the end-of-the-year jackpot cleans the Pick Six slate for the New Year, as Santa Anita will offer a nine-race program on Sunday that is scheduled to be highlighted by reigning Breeders’ Cup Classic Champion Arrogate’s appearance in the Grade II, $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes at a mile and a sixteenth.
With first post time on New Year’s Day at 12:30 p.m., the San Pasqual has been carded as race eight and the Pick Six will be comprised of races four through nine. Approximate post time for race four is at 2 p.m. PDT.
