TOC, and we’re all looking forward to offering this very popular Pick
Six Bonus to our fans here in California and across the country,” said

“This Pick Six model has proven extremely popular over the past two
years at Del Mar and we have no doubt it will be here at Santa Anita as
cooperation of the TOC, these monies will help stimulate significant
additional handle not just on the Pick Six, but on other wagers
throughout our betting menu. Additionally, we believe both of our Pick
Four guarantees will also be well received by our fans. We anticipate
several other innovative changes to our pari-mutel look and we look
