Longshots Ensure Pick Six Carryover for Saturday at Del Mar

With longshots ringing up win after win, Del Mar’s popular Pick Six bet was too tough to take down Friday causing a carryover of $84,078 to go forward into Saturday’s pool for the exotic wager.
Only one favorite managed a victory in the six-race sequence Friday afternoon at the shore oval and that was in the 9th Race finale when Buzzer Beater scampered home under Santiago Gonzalez for a $4.20 return.
The other winners on the card were:  (3rd Race) Oopper Wallah (ridden by Norberto Arroyo, Jr.) $48.20; (4th Race) Pedro Cerrano (Arroyo, Jr.) $29.00; (5th Race) Perfect Pic (Gonzalez) $12.20; (6th Race) Zuri Chop (Brayan Pena) $42.00; (7th Race) the feature Shared Belief Stakes -- Accelerate (Tyler Baze) $5.60, and Buzzer Beater.
Carryovers of Saturday’s size normal draw a good bit of “fresh” money and a total Pick Six pool in the neighborhood of $500,000 is expected.
First post Saturday is at 2 p.m. The Pick Six will be on races 5 through 10.
