ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 29, 2107)–Santa Anita’s elusive Single Ticket Pick Six Jackpot remained untouchable for the second consecutive racing day on Friday, resulting in Single Ticket Jackpot carryover of $63,103 into Saturday.
With a nine-race card, including three graded stakes on tap for Saturday, the Pick Six will encompass races four through nine. The Grade III, $100,000 Robert J. Frankel Stakes will serve as leg one in the Saturday Pick Six and trainer Chad Brown’s Elysea’s World is the 2-1 favorite in a field of six fillies and mares going a mile and one eighth on turf.
The Grade I, $300,000 American Oaks (race seven) and the Grade III, $100,000 Midnight Lute Stakes (race eight) also figure prominently in the Pick Six sequence.
With a total of 69 horses entered and eligible to run in Saturday’s Pick Six, average field size computes to more than 11 runners per race.
