SANTA ANITA PICK SIX CARRYOVER OF $126,946, FIRST POST TIME ON WEDNESDAY SET FOR 1 P.M.

ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 31, 2010)—No one tabbed six winners in Sunday’s popular Pick Six at Santa Anita, resulting in a carryover of $126,946 into Wednesday. With no live racing on Monday or Tuesday, it is expected Wednesday’s total pool will easily exceed $500,000.

Sunday’s Pick Six got underway in race four, and jockey Garrett Gomez executed a furious stretch rally with English import My Aunt Fanny, getting up to win by a neck. The 5-year-old English-bred mare paid $18.00 to win. She is trained by Sandy Shulman and owned by Santa Anita President Ron Charles.

Race five went to Devine Actress, the second wagering choice in a field of eight. Ridden by Victor Espinoza, the 5-year-old Kentucky-bred mare by Theatrical paid $8.60 to win. She is owned by Amerman Racing, LLC and is trained by David Hofmans.

The only betting favorite to win in today’s Pick Six was Yodelen Dan, who took the sixth by three lengths under Tyler Baze. Owned and bred in California by Mr. and Mrs. Larry D. Williams, the 7-year-old gelding by Swiss Yodeler paid $5.40 to win. He’s trained by Jeff Mullins.

Race seven went to Manhattan Beach, who paid $9.20 to win and provided Gomez with his third win. Trained by Mike Mitchell, the 5-year-old Irish-bred mare had been idle since July 30 at Del Mar. She is owned by Tony Lawlor.

The Gr. I Santa Monica Handicap served as Saturday’s eighth and it went to longshot Gabby’s Golden Gal under Martin Garcia. Although favored in her most recent start, the Gr. I La Brea Stakes on Dec. 26, the Bob Baffert trainee paid $25.20 to win in the field of 11. A 4-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Medaglia d’Oro, “Gabby” is owned by her breeder, Arnold Zetcher.

The ninth went to Moonskipper, providing Espinoza with his second tally on the day. Trained by Paddy Gallagher, she paid $9.60 to win. A 3-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Stephen Got Even, Moonskipper is owned by Bronson, Lavino, Moonves and partners.

First post time on Wednesday is 1 p.m. and the Pick Six will cover races three through eight.
