With nearly $100,000 in the carryover pool, Pick Six players exploded last night by betting an additional $977,475 into the kitty. That’s an incredible amount when you think about it because a normal carryover attracts about 3 to 4 times more handle than the amount carried over. It would have been reasonable to expect last night’s pool (not including carryover) to have been about $300,000-$400,000, not the astronomical figure we got. So as the excitement built—at least for those alive—to a fever pitch, we got a dead-heat in the last race between 6/5 favorite SOCIAL SATIRE and 5/1 shot SON MONTUNO, thus putting a glaring spotlight on the unfairness of current rules. As it stands now, there are not separate payoffs for the two runners (this also applies to the Pick 4) but rather the payoff is determined by taking the entire pool (minus takeout and percentage left over for consolation payoffs) and dividing it by tickets held on BOTH runners. This is patently unfair to those who held winning tickets on the longer price. They saw their projected payoff drop from $45,800 to $9,577, while those with the favorite saw their payoff drop only from $12,106. So the ticket holders with the favorite received only a 21% reduction, yet the ticket holders with the longer-priced runner took a massive 79% hit. The percentages were similar in the Pick 4 when both horses returned $362, thereby reducing the projected payoff for ‘MONTUNO from $1,557 (and $473 from ‘SATIRE). How crazy is this? Shouldn’t each horse be treated separately and have its payoff cut in half, which is basically what happens in the win pool? As Jay Privman said this morning on the “Thoroughbred Los Angeles” radio show, it amounts to computer software and programming laziness. The technology is there and this rule must be changed ASAP.

On Friday: Two riding wins for David Cohen and a pair of training wins for John Sadler…Bobby Frankel ended a prolonged slump when DOUBLE TROUBLE gave him his second winner of the meet. You can expect Frankel to come roaring back in the remainder of the meet.

On Thursday: Two wins each for David Flores and Joe Talamo, while trainers Mike Mitchell and Barry Abrams also doubled…the sire Unusual Heat sent out THREE winners on the card. He has been one incredible producer over the years, especially when his runners hit the turf.

Excellent weekend cards coming up, particularly Monday’s 10-race Memorial Day card featuring the Shoemaker Mile and the Gamely. Can’t wait.
