PRAT & MILLER FINISH ON TOP AS SANTA ANITA’S 60-DAY WINTER SPRING MEET CLOSES
ARCADIA, Calif. (June 21, 2020)–With $5,649,128 in new money wagered, Sunday’s total 20 cent Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot pool reached $6,738,964 by Santa Anita’s seventh race post time on Sunday, with the result being a mandatory closing day payout of $12,304.70.
Today’s seventh race was the $150,000 Melair Stakes, which was won by Warren’s Showtime, who paid $10.60 to win. Including the Melair, the Rainbow Six sequence was determined thusly: R7 #6, $10.60, R8 #10, $6.20, R9 #3, $11.60, R10 #4, $16.80, R11 #2, $3.20 and R12 #5, $25.20.
Santa Anita’s 60-day Winter/Spring Meeting, which began on Dec. 28 and was closed due to concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic from March 27 until the track was allowed to reopen without fans on May 15, played host to a number of great performances, perhaps highlighted by Honor A.P.’s stirring victory in the Grade I Runhappy Santa Anita Derby on June 6, a performance that stamped him a leading contender for the Kentucky Derby on Sept. 5.
On the human side of things, French native Flavien Prat, 27, ran away with the jockeys’ title, winning 90 races, 29 more than runner-up Abel Cedillo. Additionally, Prat, who notched his second career Winter/Spring title, dead heated with Mike Smith for most stakes wins, with 14.
In the trainers’ division, Peter Miller got his first Santa Anita Winter/Spring crown, outrunning Bob Baffert, 35 to 33, while Baffert led Miller in stakes-won 10-8.
Live racing will return to Santa Anita on Friday, Sept. 11. Fans are encouraged to visit santaanita.com for updates, or call (626) 574-RACE.
