ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 2, 2014)–Santa Anita Park has announced that it will guarantee a $150,000 Pick Six pool each Saturday, beginning Jan. 4, throughout the current Winter Meet, which ends April 20.
The Pick Six, first instituted at Santa Anita on Oct. 17, 1980, is a $2 minimum wager that requires players to select the winning horse in each of the last six races, each racing day. If no one correctly selects all six winners, there is a carryover into the following day’s races.
In addition to the Pick Six, Santa Anita also offers three low takeout, $2 Daily Doubles–on races one and two; four and five, and on the final two races each day.
Along with the Pick Six, Santa Anita also offers a daily 50 cent Pick 5, on the first five races each day; two 50 cent Pick 4′s, beginning with race two, and again on each day’s final four races.
Beginning with race one, 50 cent rolling Pick 3′s are also offered each day.
This Saturday, Santa Anita will offer a nine-race program that will include two graded stakes; the Grade II, $200,000 Santa Ynez, for 3-year-old fillies at 6 ½ furlongs, the Grade II, $200,000 San Gabriel, for older horses at 1 1/8 miles on turf, along with the $75,000 Midnight Lute Stakes for older horses at six furlongs.
First post time on Saturday is at 12:30 p.m. For additional racing information, please visit santaanita.com.
