FanDuel/TVG Player Turns 0 Into ,175 In Pick 6 On Santa Anita’s Opening Day – Horse Racing News


It didn’t take long.  With first post time for Santa Anita’s nine-race Autumn Meet opening day card on Friday at 1 p.m. PT, the track’s popular 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick 6 Jackpot started with race four and ended with race nine.

With the last race at one mile on turf and Australian-bred Kazuhiko positioned as a “live” horse in the Pick 6 Jackpot, a pari-mutuel dream came true for the single ticket holder, as Kazuhiko, ridden by Edwin Maldonado and trained by Peter Eurton, rallied for a 1 ¼-length win and paid $6.60.

With an opening day Jackpot pool of $94,571, the winning ticket, which was purchased for $230.40 via FanDuel/TVG, paid $72,175.40.

There was one major upset in the Rainbow Pick 6 sequence, as the Jesus Uranga-trained It’s My House took race eight at 35-1.  Ridden by Ricardo Ramirez, he paid $73.40.

The winning Rainbow Pick 6 numbers and win mutuels were as follows:  R4, #1 ($17.80), R5, #1 ($7.20), R6, #6 ($14.80), R7, #2 ($6.20), R8, #3 ($73.40) and R9, #3 ($6.60).

First post time for a 10-race card, which includes six stakes on Saturday is at 12:30 p.m. The Rainbow Pick 6 will be comprised of races five through 10.  Approximate post time for Saturday’s fifth race is at 2:38 p.m. PT.
