ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2014)–Santa Anita Park has announced it will offer $150,000 guaranteed Pick Six pools each Saturday and Sunday beginning this Feb. 15 and 16, through Sunday, June 29.
The track had been offering $150,000 pool guarantees on Saturdays, resulting in significantly increased average Saturday pools of $262,000 since the guarantee was initiated in early January. Accordingly, the decision has been made to extend the guarantee to Sundays as well.
“We have been very pleased with the response to our Pick Six Guarantee on Saturdays,” said Santa Anita Vice President of Marketing, Nate Newby. “The pools continue to grow and the guaranteed pool on Saturdays and now Sundays will allow our players to wager with confidence knowing they are betting into the biggest Pick Six pools in the nation and an opportunity for a life-changing score.”
Santa Anita’s winter meeting which began Dec. 26, will conclude April 20 and be followed by a new Spring Meet that will run from April 25 through June 29.
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.
First post time on non-holiday weekdays at Santa Anita is 1 p.m., on weekends at 12:30 p.m. For additional racing information, please visit santaanita.com.
