Santa Anita: San Felipe Day Pick 6 Carryover

For the 18th time this season, no one was able to correctly tab six winners in Santa Anita’s popular Pick Six, resulting in a carryover into Saturday of $59,436 and the likelihood of a total pool of more than $500,000.

 

Santa Anita offers a 10-race card on Saturday and the Pick Six will cover races five through 10. The Grade II, $300,000 San Felipe stakes headlines what shapes up as an outstanding program.

 

Favoritism in the San Felipe, one of the most important steppingstones on both the Santa Anita and Kentucky Derby trails, could go to either Creative Cause, who is the 5-2 morning line favorite or Bodemeister, who has been installed by line maker Jon White as the second choice at 3-1.

 

A field of 10 3-year-olds have signed up for the 1 1/16 miles San Felipe and there appears to be plenty of early speed in the race with Bodemeister, American Act (8-1) and Midnight Transfer (6-1) figuring prominently in the early going.

 

Should a fast pace develop, it could be to Creative Cause’s benefit. A winner of the Grade I Norfolk Stakes on Oct. 1, he was third in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Nov. 5 at Churchill Downs and was most recently third in the seven furlong Grade II San Vicente on Feb. 19. His style suggests that he will likely stalk the early pacesetters.

 

Full fields are the order of the day in the Pick Six and with 59 horses entered, players will have an average field size of just under 10 horses per race to deal with.
