Three days, three Pick Six carryovers. Heading into Saturday’s card, the carryover had built to more than $1.48 million after a longshot brigade to open the meet. On opening day, the Pick Six kicked off with a $106 bomber, followed by a $39 longshot. That caused a carryover of $101,000 into Thursday, which saw double-digit prices (including $35, $34 and $53 surprises) win five of the six races. With $452,000 carried over into Friday night, it was bombs away with all six winner paying over $10, including $37, $36 and $30 price horses. So, of 18 Pick races run at the young meet, 14 of the winners (and 16 of 25 overall) have paid over $10.

The reasons probably are obvious: switching back to the Cushion Track surface after a long four-month meet at Santa Anita; large field sizes and extremely competitive races to open the season; and a slight edge to horses that have trained regularly at Hollywood Park. Still, finding these winners and hooking them up properly for a score are not easy. For example, on the Thursday card I used longshot winners CORAZONDELCAMPEON ($34.60 in 7th) and BRAHMS TUDOR ($53.40 in 8th) in trifectas (Best Play races) and the Pick 4 but couldn’t connect with the exotic touchdown.

Friday night was extreme chaos and all Pick Six tickets were dead when KING PALM re-rallied to win his second straight after being a professional maiden for the first 16 races of his career…the late Pick 4 paid a record $355,000 to ONE winning ticket.

Pete Eurton, Mike Puype and Vladimir Cerin have two winners apiece while training at HP. Of Bob Baffert’s two winners, one trained at HP and the other trained across town. And both of Julio Canani’s winners have trained exclusively at Santa Anita. Moral of the story: You can train and win at either place (although I still think it’s an advantage to train over the home track). There has been no bias on the main track or turf but we have seen a bit of a “horses for courses” angle with winners GREAT OPINIONS (1st race on Thursday) and HAPPY CELYNA (5th race on Friday) snapping back to winning form after scoring here during the fall meet.

Things will settle down, no question. In the meantime, ride the wave and try to catch one of these huge payoffs. Isn’t it a whole lot better than short fields with a parade of 3/5 shots?
